Easy Peasy Pumpkin Muffins

Have you been just dying to try that post on Facebook / pin on Pinterest?  You know, the one with only 2 ingredients - a yellow cake mix and a can of pumpkin.  Well, I HAVE, so I DID!  I am happy to report it was a huge success with my family and guests.


 Easy Peasy Pumpkin Muffins

Ok, so you've got the 2 ingredients:

1 box of yellow cake mix
1 can of pumpkin

OK, OK, OK - True confessions time -- I couldn't do it...
I just had to "kick it up", just the tiniest bit ;)
However, if you don't want to "kick it up," I am CERTAIN these two ingredients will make awesome muffins!  These ingredients did not alter the consistency one bit!

So here are my few still "easy peasy" additions:

1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg

Teacher note:  Save those Box Tops for Education for your kids' school(s), or your grandkids' school(s), or your neighborhood school, but DON'T THROW THEM AWAY - that's like throwing money away!! Thank you :)

First, either spray your muffin pan, or line with cupcake liners.
Of course I picked liners, because that means easier clean-up!

*Next, mix all those ingredients together until smooth 
BONUS ARM WORKOUT included at NO CHARGE - You're welcome ;)

It's pretty sticky, so I used a scoop to fill each muffin cup.
Since it was an experiment, I only put chocolate chips in half.  Of course those were the first ones gone - BIG SHOCKER!

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.


My husband recommends popping them into the microwave to warm them once they have cooled -
20 seconds should do it.  YUM!

I've seen on Pinterest where some people use Spice Cake Mix, Devil's Food Cake Mix, etc.
Experiment and make it your own.  
Whip these puppies up for a quick dessert, breakfast muffin, or an afternoon treat with coffee or tea.

Thank you to whoever originally posted this trip, because I'm loving how "Easy Peasy" it is!!
