Red Velvet Pumpkin Cupcakes

Rather, red velvet cake mix made with pumpkin. I took half a cake mix, 7.5 oz of pumpkin (half of the can), one egg, and a little bit of oil. (I did not measure it.)

It came out cakey, like an actual cupcake. The first pumpkin muffin attempt was just a spice cake mix and canned pumpkin. That was good, and had a distinct pumpkin taste, which was good. The texture was more of a muffin. So, I wanted to try out adding typical “cake ingredients” to see if they would come out. And they did!

Tomorrow, I will attempt (again) my grandmothers cooked flour frosting. Look for that later!


  1. Sounds delicious! I love pumpkin though so I’m a bit biased I’m sure!

    Melissa, they were good!

    I didn’t taste a lot of pumpkin in them. If I made them again, I would probably add a little pumpkin pie spice to bring out the pumpkin flavor, along with the chocolate part of it.
