I have had this recipe for so long that I can’t remember who passed it to me. I am so excited to share it with all of you and I’ll give you all our little secrets to go along with it. These easy pumpkin muffins are usually gobbled right up in our home. They are wonderful when you need to make something fast for school, potluck, work, new neighbor, or even a quick snack or you kids/grandkids.
The best part is that it all starts with 2 ingredients!
THESE ARE THE INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED
For the base you need a box of cake mix and a can of pumpkin pie filling – that’s it!
(I’m using spice cake mix – but you can use yellow cake mix or any cake mix you want.) I love this recipe because it’s easier than other pumpkin recipes. You don’t need all of the dry ingredients and wet ingredients like butter, flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, vanilla extract, salt, you get it the list goes on and on. You could use your own pumpkin puree rather than canned pumpkin.
This recipe could also be turned into pumpkin pancakes, or even a regular cake, and spruce it up with some cream cheese frosting.
