Chocolate Cupcakes made with Pumpkin?

Yes you may wonder, this is the only ingredients of this cake. I found out about this recipe from my good friend Sarah (Goodposture).
You need one 8 oz can of pumpkin and one box of chocolate cake mix. Could be considered Vegan or low fat, but I just want to call them SUPER YUMMY.

Mix the two ingredients together. It will be really, really thick! I added a 1/4 C of water to it to make it a little easier to work with.

Scoop batter into cupcake liners and bake at 350 for about 19 minutes or until done. These cupcakes will be more moist than normal cake batter.

Peanut Butter frosting was a MUST for these super moist, chocolate cupcakes. (sorry this is not vegan or low fat.)

I found the recipe in America's Test Kitchen cookbook. 1 C of unsalted butter, 1 C of Peanut Butter, 2 Tablespoons of Heavy Cream, 1 teaspoon of Vanilla, 2 1/2 Cups Powder Sugar. Cream together several minutes until light and fluffy.

All frosted and ready to eat.
