3 Easy Steps to a Much Healthier Cupcake
Step 1: Mix ingredients (a box of cake mix and a can of pumpkin) and put in muffin pan.
Step 2: Cook according to cake box directions, adding a couple extra minutes. You'll know they're done when they bounce back when pushed with your finger.
Step 3: Thank Connie for the great recipe and then Eat!
Why are they healthier?
Most cake box mixes call for at least two eggs (164 calories -- 104 calories from fat) and 1/2 a cup of oil (964 calories -- 100% from fat).
2 cups of canned pumpkin has 166 calories (only 12 calories from fat) and gives you 0 cholesterol, 5 grams of protein, and loads of Vitamin A. Night vision, anyone?
