I got this recipe from a Weight Watcher's meeting, and found these very tasty. This recipe is low in fat and calories. I also tried 1 box of cake mix with a cherry lite pie topping - very tasty. My kids loved both muffins. (for Weight Watchers: each muffin is only 2 points.)

  1. Mix both together until smooth.

I thought they were very good. I just added 2 tsps. of pumpkin pie spice to pick it up a little.

These are so good and easy. I tried with a spice cake mix and added some pumpkin pie spice (trying to use up the dozen or so containers I've accumulated over the years) and they were awesome. Then I tried it with a yellow cake mix and pumpkin pie spice....they were good. Then this morning I used carrot cake mix and they were really good. My family likes them and I like the fact that they are super easy!!!!! I used a 29oz can of pumpkin and 2 cake mixes and the results were the same. These muffins also freeze well!

I am going through a cooking frenzy.....must be the approaching Fall. Anyway, had a can of pumpkin in the pantry and a yellow cake mix and I thought that there wouldn't be a thing that I could make. But, lo and behold, here was your recipe. I read all of the reviews and added the following to the recipe (according to other reviewers).....2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. nutmeg, 1/4 tsp. cloves, raisins, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup white sugar and about 1/3 - 2/3 cups of water. I know that's a lot of additions, but the muffins came out WONDERFULLY. I used mini muffin pans and got 38 mini muffins, BUT I put way too much batter in each cup, so I could have gotten a LOT more minis. Thanks for such an easy recipe. I think next time I'll try a spice cake recipe.... This is a MUST try! The only problem with the mini muffins is that I keep popping them in my mouth and all of a sudden seven are gone....gulp...better stop!
