Pumpkin cake with apple cider glaze & Pumpkin muffins

It's fall again... and I love recipes with pumpkin & apples.  This is the best cake ever and super easy... I got this recipe from my sister Danielle.  I make muffins similary close to this recipe but without the glaze... they are yummy too....what the heck I might as well post that recipe too :)  enjoy

Pumpkin cake with apple cider glaze

1 box yellow or white cake mix
1 15 oz. can pumpkin
1/4 cup water
1/2 t pumpkin pie spice

Apple cider glaze
1/2 c apple cider (or apple juice)
1 to 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to directions on cake mix.  Mix cake mix, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice & water with mixer until blended. Pour into greased 9x13 inch pan.  Follow the directions on the cake mix box until cake is done and toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Cool cake for 10-15 minutes.  Whisk together the apple cider (or apple juice) and powdered sugar.  You need a really thin mixture, and pour over warm cake.  Let sit for around 30 minutes to 1 hour for glaze to soak in... enjoy

Pumpkin muffins

1 box carrot cake (or spice cake mix)
1 15 oz. can pumpkin
1/3 cup water

Mix all ingredients together with a wooden spoon mixing well.  Scoop mixture 2/3 full into muffin tins lined with paper liners.  Bake for around 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Enjoy
