By request, here is the recipe for the pumpkin cupcakes I made for Cade's birthday. To be honest, I think that may have been the first time I used that recipe to make cupcakes. We've always made loaves or a bundt cake out of it.
The recipe came from an OLD Taste of Home magazine we had and it's been a family favorite for years. Enjoy!
1 1/4 cup oil
1 can pumpkin puree
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 (3 oz) pkgs cook & serve vanilla pudding
In a large mixing bowl beat eggs. Add oil & pumpkin; beat until smooth. Combine remaining ingredients in separate bowl and gradually beat into pumpkin mixture. Bake @ 325 degrees in 2 greased 8x4 loaf pans for 75 minutes OR 1 greased bundt pan for 65 minutes.
