I have made these a few times as per the recipe and they were great. Everybody in the house really liked them. This time I made a few changes based on the reviews, and now they are even better. Instead of using muffin wrappers I just sprayed the muffin tins and they dropped right out. (They always used to stuck to the paper and that was annoying as you'd lose some of your muffin.) Also, I added 1 egg and reduced the water to about a 1/3 of a can. Now they are not as wet and much more cakey. I will now be making these more often!
I didn't have spice cake mix on hand so I used a yellow cake mix and did the following tweaks:
1 cup oatmeal
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ginger powder
reduced water to 2/3 cup
I found the oatmeal reduced the excess moistness leaving a balanced muffin (moist still but not too moist). I also reduced the water to 1/2 cup because I added an egg to the recipe. The whole house smells like fall when these are being baked! Next time I might add nuts or craisins for extra flavor.
2 points per serving (24 cup cakes)!
I love these muffins and you can't mess them up! I used the exact recipe except I used a yellow cake mix and added 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice and they came out great! My kids love them too and I feel like I am sneaking in a veggie!
