Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcake Recipe – The perfect dessert for fall!

Total Time: 20 minutes


Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcake Recipe – The perfect dessert for fall!


  • 12oz can pumpkin puree
  • 2 cups vanilla cake mix
  • 1/2 cup whole milk, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • Recommended frosting: Pumpkin Vanilla Buttercream
  • Optional toppings: chocolate syrup and sprinkles


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line 12 cupcake molds with paper liners. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Using electric mixer, beat until light and fluffy, which will take about 2 minutes.
  3. Fill the prepared molds with the batter. Bake about 20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  4. Allow cupcakes to cool completely before frosting. I used a Wilton 1M tip with the frosting recipe from Making Lemonade Blog (linked above), drizzled with Hershey's chocolate syrup, and sprinkled with Halloween themed sprinkles.
