Recipe: Super Easy Pumpkin Muffins from Cake Mix

This has to be one of the easiest recipes ever and is just perfect for kicking off the fall season.  It’s also very easy to make lots of variations – see the bottom of the recipe for some ideas.  If you make this using a spice cake mix rather than yellow only 2 ingredients are needed for the whole recipe, but I’m always much more likely to have a yellow cake mix on hand.  As a bonus,  these muffins are very low in fat because no butter, oil or eggs are used.

pumpkin muffins Yellow Cake Mix
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
15 oz can of pumpkin (NOT PIE FILLING)

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 12-muffin tin or fill with cupcake papers.  Place cake mix in a large bowl.  Add spices and stir to distribute.  Add in pumpkin and stir until well blended.  (If it appears too thick, add a few tablespoons of water.)  Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  NOTE:  These muffins do taste quite sweet!

Variations:

Use chocolate cake mix – omit spices
Use spice cake mix – omit spices
Add 1 cup chopped pecans
Add 1 cup chocolate chips
Sprinkle tops with brown sugar before baking
