The best, I mean best pumpkin cupcake out there…. are you ready Annette? It’s a keeper!

Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes
(from 101 Gourmet Cupcakes in 10 Minutes)

1 box spice cake mix
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
½ cup milk
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips

Mix together cake mix, eggs, milk, vanilla, pumpkin, chocolate and butterscotch
chips. Pour the batter into paper liners, filling ¾ full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes until the cakes are light golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool
completely on a wire rack.

Frosting Suggestions: Chocolate Ganache, Chocolate Buttercream, Cream Cheese or Vanilla Buttercream

Cream Cheese Frosting ( my personal favorite)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 ¾ cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth and light. Stop the mixer and add
sugar, and vanilla extract. Start mixer on slow and gradually increase the speed until frosting is fluffy. Frost and refrigerate. Sprinkle with grated nutmeg for added flavor and presentation.

  1. I love cream cheese frosting on pumpkin cupcakes too. I recently saw a cinnamon cream cheese frosting on some pumpkins cupcakes, might be fun to try.

  2. I can personally attest that these are the BEST pumpkin cupcakes ever! My family loved them! I sprinkled cinnamon on top of mine, instead of nutmeg (I’m not much of a nutmeg fan).
