Lizzie's Pumpkin Chocolate Cupackes Recipe
Simple, VEGAN FRIENDLY, and scrumptious, these fudgy, moist cupcakes will be a huge hit (and for those watching their calories, they come in at around 130 calories per cupcake - based on a yield of 18 medium-sized cupcakes).



  • Moist Devil's Food Cake Mix (I use Duncan Hines)
  • 1- 15 oz. can of Condensed Pumpkin (you can also use pumpkin spice mix for a more flavorful treat)



·    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

·    Mix the cake mix and the can of pumpkin with an electric mixer until smooth. Batter will be extremely thick, unlike regular cake batter. This is normal.

·    Set paper cupcake liners in your cupcake pan.

·    Drop large spoonfuls of the batter into the cupcake molds. I try to make mine even, they usually fill the mold about two thirds, to three quarters of the way full.

·    Bake in oven for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
