Easy Pumpkin Muffins

My recent addiction to Pinterest hasn't been without it's share of greatness. Case in point, I discovered a recipe that I actually wanted to try. You see, recipes in general intimidate me as they can be overwhelming with steps 1-10, hard to find ingredients, etc. Well, this particular recipe was two, easy ingredients. That's it. I had to try it!

All you do is mix the above two ingredients together and bake! I've seen where some have made this a bundt cake, or sheet cake, or even cookies, but I chose cupcakes/muffins! Here's what I did...

  • Yellow Cake Mix
  • 15oz Libby's Pumpkin Mix

Preheat oven at 350.

In a large mixing bowl, mix the two ingredients either by hand or using a electric mixer (I used a rubber spatula).  For an added bit of zest, I added a touch of cinnamon & nutmeg, but you don't have to. Line cupcake/muffin tray with liners. Fill with 3/4 batter*.

Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.

While the muffins were still warm, I sprinkled powdered sugar on them. YUM!

And now, EAT 'em!

*Tip: I used a Ziploc bag for piping the batter into the muffin cups as it was pretty difficult using a spoon. Just put all the batter into the bag and "smush" all the way to the bottom. Then, snip a nickel size hole off one of the corners. Bam! You have a piping bag! ;-) It's not pretty, but it works like a charm!

Enjoy your Pumpkin Muffins! I can't wait to try these in other variations too, like Duncan Hines Spice Cake flavor or even adding chocolate chips. The possibilities are endless! If you're tried these and would like to share how you made them your own, let me know! I'd ♥ to hear about it!
