I made these recently and we loved them so I decided to share.  I don’t know who to credit with where I first heard about this but lots of people do it and have done it for several years.  Honestly, I don’t know if these are cupcakes or muffins.  Both are good though, so who cares what we choose to call them – right?

Take a cake mix, any flavor and a can of pumpkin.  And voila!

Since it is fall, I chose Spice Cake Mix.

It is very important that you don’t follow the directions on the box.  We all know that I don’t follow directions anyway…but we have permission to not follow them today!  The only info that I get from the cake mix box is what temperature to heat the oven, and how long they think cupcakes should bake.

I mixed the two ingredients and then used an ice cream scoop to plop them into a greased muffin tin.

I baked them according to the package and here they are! (raw and baked look quite similar!)

We decided we wanted to have the option to put frosting on them, so I bought 2 kinds.

I am pretty sure we liked the Duncan Hines one best, but I really can’t remember now!

They were yummy, fun, fast, and easy.  All wins in my book.  They freeze really well too.  I popped at least half of them in a ziplock and tossed them in the freezer.  Then if Russell or I want a sweet treat we grab one or 10 (LOL) and zap them in a the microwave.
