Recipe adapted from allrecipe.com’s Chocolate Pumpkin Cake: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/chocolate-pumpkin-cake/
These were a healthy and delicious fall treat that Mae and I enjoyed baking, frosting as pumpkins, and eating. This recipe is made with cake mix, pumpkin, eggs, applesauce and ONLY 1 T. veg. oil. These really could be made as muffins without frosting and cupcakes with frosting. I really liked the flavor of the cake; it was different, warm, mildly chocolatey, with a hint of spice (I added a pinch of cinnamon and cloves).
Just a note though, if you didn’t know these had pumpkin in them, you wouldn’t know. It is hard to pick out the flavors in this cupcake once they all blend.
So…to conclude: FALL HEALTHY CUPCAKE.
