How to Make Easy Pumpkin Cupcakes
- Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare 24 muffin cups with paper liners or grease well.
- Mix cake mix, pumpkin, oil, eggs, and spice on low speed of mixer until just blended. Then beat 2 minutes on medium speed, scraping bowl a couple of times.
- Fill muffin cups about 1/2 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until tops spring back when touched lightly. Cool about 5 minutes in pans, then remove to rack for complete cooling.
- You can either frost with the craisin-vanilla frosting, or just dust with powdered sugar.
Craisin-vanilla frosting: stir about 1 cup of craisins into a tub of vanilla frosting. Spread or pipe onto cupcakes.
