  • Pumpkin Muffins- 2 ingredients!

    Never easier 2 ingredient pumpkin muffins, tender, moist and delicious. Hard to believe it's literally only 2 ingredients!!
    First and foremost, YES you can use a homemade cake mix in this recipe if you prefer, recipe here.

    You'll Need:

    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 Pie Spice




    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

      Oh, MY GOD! This is absolutely mouthwatering, just got done baking them! I used the yellow cake mix recipe from this site, using whole wheat pastry flour and lard instead of shortening, and the batter seemed WAY too dry so I added an egg. After 20 min they were perfectly done!!! I spread a little whipped cream cheese on and it was a little piece of heaven! The mix made 20 muffins, I will def be making this again and I'll be making up the yellow cake mix into jars and giving it with a can of pumpkin as gifts! Seriously, if you have a few extra minutes, make the yellow cake mix, it worked well and there will be 0 preservatives, and using whole wheat pastry flour is even better for you! I can't believe I just ate a whole wheat pumpkin muffin that I made entirely from scratch and not only was it incredibly easy, it tastes like something made at a bakery!!!

      This one I will have to try. Gluten free deserts are usually a little more complicated

      Whole wheat pastry flour may be better but I would be worried about lard!

      How long would you cook this if you put it in a loaf pan?

      I would recommend baking and checking using a toothpick for doneness.
