Perfect for fall celebrations, bake sales or afterschool snacks, these pumpkin cupcakes are crowned with a cream cheese frosting that has a hint of spice.
1 package (2-layer size) yellow cake mix
1 package (4-serving size) vanilla instant pudding mix
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick® Cinnamon, Ground
1 teaspoon McCormick® Cloves, Ground
1 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Cloves, Ground
1 box (16 ounces) confectioners' sugar
Preheat oven to 350°F. For the Cupcakes, beat all ingredients, except Spiced Cream Cheese Frosting, in large bowl with electric mixer on low speed just until moistened, scraping side of bowl frequently. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes or until well blended.
Spoon batter into 24 lightly greased or paper-lined muffin cups, filling each cup 2/3 full.
Bake 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cupcake comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely.
For the Frosting, beat cream cheese, butter, vanilla and cloves in large bowl until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until smooth. Frost cooled cupcakes with Frosting.

Made these for last couple years. I've made these as cupcakes and small loaf cakes. Either way, they are a hit with friends and family. Great recipe!

I found this recipe in a magazine years ago, and it has become my favorite cupcake recipe. I break it out several times each fall, and everyone I know absolutely loves these!
Super easy and absolutely delicious!! Making the frosting was a breeze and it felt great serving cupcakes with more of a homemade touch, rather than getting the frosting out of a can. Will definitely be a Fall favorite in our house for years to come!
Love these cupcakes, easy to make and oh so good. Everyone loves them this time of year.
These are the best! Everyone is always requesting these around the holidays!!!
Love these! They are a hit with everyone!
