Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

The change in weather brings out the baker in me. It could be because most of our activities are centered around fall – a few weeks ago we went apple and peach picking and now pumpkin picking. Whatever it may be, it prompted us to make this super easy pumpkin spice cupcakes.

You can appreciate a no fuss recipe that isn’t from scratch, instead using ingredients in your pantry – cake mix and pureed pumpkin. The cupcake doubles as next day school snacks for the kids. Eat it as is or frost it with store bought dressing. In this instance, simple is truly better.
