We made these one afternoon (me and my boys) and we had a great time. They were so moist and yummy. We topped them with ready-made cream cheese frosting. They were gone in a hurry.

These were Wonderful! Instead of using plain water I brewed a strong cup of pumpkin chai and used 1/3 cup of the chai. I also added a Tbs of pumpkin pie spice to the batter. These were delicious! They baked up beautifully in 18 minutes. I got 18 full size cupcakes that rose nice and high.
