Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cupcakes

How can you not indulge in all that’s pumpkin this time of the year? This recipe is simple and delicious! They are a little messy because so moist, but you can’t stop at one and you have a nice surprise inside when you bite into the cupcake! To make the batter you will need:
Yellow Cake Mix or Spice Cake Mix
1 Can of Pumpkin
1 Cup of Water
Mix the 3 ingredients well in a bowl. To make the Cream Cheese filling you will need:
1 Package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1/2 Cup of Powdered Sugar
1 tsp of Vanilla
Mix the 3 ingredients well in a bowl. Take your cupcake liners and line your muffin pan. I bought cute ones with pumpkins on them. Fill your cupcake liners 2/3 full with the batter and follow the baking directions on the back of the box. Once baked I placed them on another baking sheet and inserted a knife to create a hole. Allow to cool. Then, I made my own homemade piping bag by taking a ziploc bag and snipping the corner. Fill with the cream cheese filling and pipe into the cupcakes. Then, take cream cheese icing (I used store bought) and added orange food coloring until I reached the orange color I desired. Spread the icing onto the tops of the cupcakes and I sprinkled with orange and black bat sprinkles! 🙂

  2. I have problems to get canned pumpkins – we don’t eat that .. at all in Sweden. A real pity. So many wonderful recipes with canned pumpkins and pumpkins puree. Still not able to get a notification when you post – so I have un-followed now and will start all over.
