Pumpkin Cupcakes (or muffins)

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and I had to try it. Two ingredients??? How can this be? It felt weird just adding the pumpkin, and the batter was a little thick. They turned out to be a nice orange color, but they really had no taste of pumpkin in them at all. I made a cream cheese frosting to go on top, and it turned out great! I think I gained two pounds just from eating that! So- the pumpkin muffins weren’t that great (they were ok, but not the awesome pumpkin cupcakes I was looking for), and the frosting was great.
