It’s Fall Y’all! Pumpkin Spice & Everything nice

Fall weather usually shows up in Florida mid to late October but…..
But we got a taste of it over the weekend!
It put me in the mood to feed my inner pumpkin child!
I’ve been waiting to try this recipe and Sunday was a perfect day.
I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make either.

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes!
You will need:
Cake ingredients:
  • 18.25 oz Dunkin Hines Golden Vanilla Super Moist Cake Mix
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup canned 100% pure pumpkin
  • 1 cup water
For the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • 8 oz Philadelphia 1/3 fat cream cheese (do not use fat free)
  • 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin (canned is fine)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 5 tbsp packed brown sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a cupcake tin with cupcake wrappers.
    Combine cake mix and pumpkin spice in a large bowl. Add pumpkin puree and water, mix about 2 minutes.
  2. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full and bake about 20 - 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  3. For the frosting, combine the cream cheese, pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and brown sugar until smooth. You can use a spatula to ice the cupcakes or pipe them which may require making more frosting.
