This is too good to be true, right? With a box of cake mix and a can of pumpkin, you can have muffins in no time! Adapted from sparkpeople.com.
- 18 ounces spice cake mix
- 15 ounces pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
- Simply mix the pumpkin and the spice cake mix together with electric mixer until well combined. (At this point you may also want to throw in some nuts or raisins, if you like.).
- Spoon into paper lined small muffin/cupcake tins, 2/3 full. (The batter is very thick and doesn't "settle", so you may wish to smooth the tops if you care what the finished product looks like!).
- Bake at 350* 18-22 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
I have made this for years.. I do many different variations... adding raisens, craisens, coconut, nuts and glaze. They are always moist and delicious. The only thing I have never done is put them in muffin form. I usually use a small ice cream scoop and put on a pan so they make little cake like cookies.
WOW...soooooooooo moist. Added cinnamon, nutmeg, and 1/4 cup water like another reviewer stated. Added walnuts and M&M's too. EXCELLENT! Thank you Karen ! Will definitely make this again and will share this recipe with my friends. Baked mine 18 minutes exactly in my electric oven at 350 degrees.
These are soooo easy.I had a spice cake mix..aded 1 tsp Pumpkin pie mix and the can of pumpkin..it was so stiff I could barely mix it so I added 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon of water and they were perfect..next time I will add cranberries and maybe some chopped walnuts..if I can keep my husband out of them long enough I think cream chees glaze will be the finishing touch. My husband just said they are better than the ones I pay 4$ a dozen for and probably healthier!
