Pumpkin Spiced Cupcakes

Earlier this week I accompanied my friend Carrie to Starbucks coffeehouse. I gazed at their yummy treats while we ordered our coffees, and my eyes went straight to the pumpkin muffins. Sigh...Last Autumn I would have ordered any muffins without even blinking but now, as a gluten intolerant individual, I have to be cautious. As my first gluten free Autumn, I made it my mission to bake an awesome pumpkin muffin worthy of comparison to the other untouchable pumpkin muffins.

I purchased a spice cake mix by Namaste Foods and a can of pumpkin, and off to home I went to experiment and the results were deliciously brilliant. Turned out moist, soft, fragrant and most importantly tasty.

The sweet spices perfumed my kitchen as well as the rest of the house. Loved it!

 Below is the cake mix I used and the can of pumpkin. I recommend to first mix all ingredients (as instructed) using an electric hand held mixer, then add the pumpkin. Makes 24 cupcakes or two 9 x 9 cakes.
Enjoy GFF's!
