    • Pumpkin Muffins- 2 ingredients!

      Never easier 2 ingredient pumpkin muffins, tender, moist and delicious. Hard to believe it's literally only 2 ingredients!!



      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

        Works great with chocolate cake mix. They taste like a fudgy brownie. My grand kids love them.

        I am not sure about these as breakfast - isn't this basically just cake for breakfast? however....

        I bet these would be great (as a special treat) if you added some semi-sweet chocolate chips. MMMMMmmmmm.

        Soooo,
        It's 1:00 a.m. and I just finished eating one of these. It hit the spot. I used spice cake mix adding pecans. I also made an iceing of brown sugar, confectioner's sugar, cinnamon and milk. I finished it up by sprinkling toasted pecans on top. Thank you for this.

        I made these last night. Eh, well, About 1:00 a.m. actually. I made 12 big muffins for friends and kids and a heart shaped cake for husband from left over batter. I added pecans but next time will toast them. Still, it was great and everyone really loved them. I made an iceing from browned butter,confectioners sugar,milk and cinnamon. I sprinkled toasted pecans on top. Thanks for this I'll be making it again.

        A spice cake mix or even a carrot cake mx, the can of pumpkin and a half a bag of butterscotch chips....this makes great cookies for the fall. I make them to take to church and they are the first ones gone! Very moist.

        This also makes good cookies. I've used a carrot cake mix too. Just add butterscotch chips and bake for about 13 minutes at 350

        This Recipe also works great with Pineapple, 1 can of crushed and 1 can of chunks, (15-16 oz cans) drain the chunky can but not the crushed. mix together and bake as directed on box. The chunks of pineapple don't get that soggy texture too them, they just get warm and the crushed pineapple add the liquid and moisture that the cake batter needs. I also like to add cherries (no juice just pull the stem and drop in the batter) and top with whipped cream, but its not necessary. I usually make as a cake, not sure how the muffins would come out but worth a try Iv never thought to use the recipe with other canned fruits / veggies but this sounds great!! I will try it soon! Thanks for the recipe

        cake mix recipes are great. I make lemon bread with 1 lemon cake mix, 1 lemon instant pudding mix, 1/2 cup canola oil (or veg. oil) and one cup water. Mix and divide into 2 grased and floured bread pans and cook at 350 degrees till done. I then make a glaze of powdered sugar and lemon juice to drizzle over the top. Chocolate cake mix and chocolate pudding makes great chocolate bread and yellow cake mix with cheesecake instant pudding is great with fruit.
