Pumpkin Cupcakes


I decided to make these pumpkin cupcakes after coming across a very easy recipe:

1 cake mix (ex. yellow cake, chocolate, spice cake etc)
1 14 oz can of pumpkin puree (pie filling works)

Mix in bowl, grease cupcake pan (or use paper liners) scoop out into baking pan, and bake on 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.

Voila, you have pumpkin cupcakes!

I decided to make two varieties. I added chocolate chips to half of the batter to make chocolate chip pumpkin cupcakes, and topped with chocolate ganache icing. The rest were plain pumpkin cupcakes with orange colored buttercream frosting (which I melted and poured onto each cupcake for smooth finish)

I took them to work and they were gone within 30 minutes! I was impressed, but I guess they were too haha :)


  1. How do you make the ganache?
