I found this great recipe for low-cal chocolate cupcakes in my hungry girl cookbook. Instead of using eggs and oil, you simply mix a box of chocolate cake mix with a can of pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling, just canned pumpkin). The batter is SUPER thick, and it seems like you need to add water, but don't give in! They took about 20 minutes to bake and turned out excellent! They don't really taste like pumpkin, but they are super moist and delish! I didn't put any frosting on them because they were just good by themselves. I gave some out to friends and they really enjoyed them (and had no idea they had pumpkin in them!) Paul didn't like them too much, but his co-workers did!
