So I had some left-over canned pumpkin from this winter that I wanted to use up. I found an interesting recipe online and decided to try it.
PUMPKIN PIE MUFFINS WITH MAPLE GLAZE
1 (15oz) can pumpkin
1 box of spice cake mix or bran muffin mix (as long as it has cinnamon in it)
roasted pumpkin seeds (shelled - just the seed, from bulk bins in "healthy" isle)
1 cup powdered sugar
1. Mix pumpkin and box mix together. Spoon into muffin cups. Sprinkle pumpkin seeds on top of each muffin. Bake as directed on box.
2. Allow muffins to cool completely. Mix 1 cup powdered sugar with about 1/4 cup maple syrup - or enough to form a glaze. Glaze cupcakes and enjoy.
These cupcakes had the taste and moist consistency of pumpkin pie. More of a fall flavor but still yummy.
