Quick Desserts with Mama Jen: Pumpkin Cupcakes
This is the easiest recipe for semi homemade pumpkin cupcakes.
What you need:
Spice cake mix
3 large eggs
1/3 cup of oil
1 TBSP cinnamon
1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
cream cheese icing
You don't have to add the cinnamon but i like to put extra. You can also substitue the oil for apple sauce to make it a little healthier.
I had to use store bought cream cheese this time but homemade cream cheese is so much better and really simple to make.
Cream Cheese Icing
2 8 oz cream cheese packages softened
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup softened butter (i prefer unsalted)
2 cups of sifted powder sugar
In a bowl mix the cream cheese first, then add other ingredients slowly until mixed!
