Recipe of the Week – Pumpkin Muffins

Okay, I’ll be honest here. This is a cheater recipe – totally simple and totally stolen. A friend of mine told me about it, and I’m sure it’s been published somewhere, but it’s like Amish Friendship Bread at this point. It just spreads like wildfire. And the best part? Two ingredients. Seriously.


1 package cake mix (any flavor)

1 can pumpkin (note: NOT pumpkin pie filling)

Mix together cake mix and pumpkin. It will look like it won’t come together, but it will. Drop into muffin tins 1/2 to 3/4 full, and bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes. Makes 12-18 regular-sized muffins.

See? Total cheater recipe. But if you make it with chocolate cake especially, kids won’t even know the pumpkin is there. Great way to get veggies into little ones, and the muffins are amazingly moist.

    This is one of Wilsonworld’s fave. ever recipes! Bug last year had an argument with her teacher, who told Bug that cupcakes were NOT healthy. Bug told her that “My Mommy’s are cause she puts veggies in them!”

    Nice as a cake too with a dash of icing sugar sprinkled over top.

  2. They are healthy! That’s what’s great about them! And pumpkin has tons of good stuff in it. Give that teacher the recipe. LOL
