First and foremost, YES you can use a homemade cake mix in this recipe if you prefer, recipe here.
1 Yellow Cake Mix (Yes, you can Use a Gluten Free Cake Mix, it WILL work!)
1 -15oz Can Pumpkin ** (see note)
This recipe is truly a 2 ingredient recipe. You don't need to add any oil, water, etc. However, you can add the following if you'd like:
Completely Optional Items:
1/2 c. Chopped Walnuts or 1/2 c. Raisins (or a handful of both!)
1 1/2 tsp Pumpkin
First, dump your cake mix into a large bowl.
Then, add the full can of pumpkin to mix.
Stir Well, combing the ingredients.
If you opt to add walnuts, raisins or pumpkin pie spice, feel free to do so now. Stir. Drop by spoonfuls into prepared muffin tins. If not using liners, be sure to spray the pan with a non-stick spray first.
Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes, remove from oven, eat while warm. These also freeze well.
Note: If you live in an area where you are unable to get canned pumpkin, canned sweet potato works well too, just be sure you use only 15 oz- sweet potato tends to come in a larger can
