It smells wonderful in the kitchen – the chily is filling the house with great aromas.   Even the kids noticed 🙂  Bonus!

So, as I said – last but not least… something sweet to finish our meals.

I conveniently pulled these ingredients together as I had all of them at the house – you might as well.

Pumpkin cupcake

Pumpkin cupcake

Pumpkin cupcakes

White cake mix (you can make your own from scratch or use a box mix from the store)

1 – 8oz can of puree pumpkin

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 ground nutmeg

1/4 ground cloves

Whipped cream

Warm the oven to 350 degrees

Mix the cake together.

Add pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and continue mixing until all it is all blended.

Fill cupcake molds 3/4 of the way.

Cook as shown on cake recipe – typically 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cupcake comes out clean.

Let them cool completely.

Serve them by adding whipped cream and dusting cinnamon and nutmeg on the top.   I have included two different presentation ideas below – both of which were admired and enjoyed by my food testers today.
