I love autumn because everything becomes pumpkin flavored, yum!  I'm a poor college student and cupcakes are fast, easy and cheap to make so I decided to experiment and make a batch of pumpkin cupcakes.

Step 1: Ingredients

These are the ingredients I used:
1 box of spice cake mix
1 can of pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling.  I mean, I gues you could use pumpkin pie filling, but it would be a lot sweeter and I wanted really pumpkin-y cupcakes)
4 eggs
amount of oil called for on the box
whole milk instead of water called for on the box (I would usually use butter milk, but I didn't have any at the moment)

You can use any spice cake recipe for this, but due to time and budget constraints, I just used a boxed mix.
Pumpkin in a can?
These were delicious!
