My most favorite recipe for muffins/cupcakes/cookies!

Today I just want to share with ya'll one of my favorite and easiest baking recipes...cause that's mostly where my cooking skills are at:)

Pumpkin/spice cake muffins!
Seriously. Just these 2 ingredients is ALL.  And they are low in Weight Watcher points too, score!

I have also used chocolate cake mixes too with the pumpkin and that's great, but my favorite is the spice cake one.

Really very easy to make.
The recipe I found on Pinterest calls for the average can of pumpkin pie mix, but I sue the larger size cause I love the taste of pumpkin.

Combine the two mixtures and blend really well.  Because the pumpkin is so thick, it can make the muffins/cupcakes/cookies a little lumpy...I still have to tweak that part some.

Then I scoop out batter and using an ice cream scoop (thanks Pinterest!) I put the batter into lined muffin tin pans. 
Afterward you bake them in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.  Now unless you have a not so great oven (like us!), keep an eye on it.  After 15 minutes, I pull them out and stick a knife in a few of them.  If it comes out clean, I know they're down.  If not, they need some more time...which with our oven, they usually need closer to 20 minutes.  If I'm making these as cookies or cupcakes, my favorite icing to use is a cream cheese frosting...it tastes so good with the pumpkin spice flavor!

After you let them cool, make yourself a cup of hot tea or pour a nice cold glass of milk and taste the yumminess of your work!  If you get a chance to make them, let me know what you think!

Happy Monday!


  1. I make these all the time in the fall! Sooo good! Pumpkin is my favorite!

  2. I made these as cookies last fall, but think I'll make them more like muffins next time. Gotta love simple recipes!

    1. I have done both, but the cookies look lumpy...thankfully my stomach knows not ugly food! ;-)
