Yep, if you are craving the pumpkin spice flavor that you love, grab a few ingredients and turn on your oven. With very little effort, you end up with cupcakes that are incredibly moist and absolutely delicious. They are so good, you could even skip the frosting if you wanted!

So what makes these cupcakes so moist and tasty? You might be surprised to learn that it’s actually Hellmann’s Mayonnaise!   Yep, the mayonnaise you love for your favorite sandwiches and salads is also the perfect ingredient for so many amazing baked goods. Hellmann’s is a must-have in my favorite chocolate cake and in this recipe as well.
