Pumpkin Cupcake/Muffins

Hello dear readers,

Today I will share with you one of my favorite recipes. It is SO easy.
Get ready, because the ingredient list can be daunting:

1 15 oz can pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling; just pumpkin - like Libby's)
1 box cake mix (your favorite flavor)

Ok, that's it. Seriously... no eggs, water, oil, nothing.

Preheat your oven to 400 degree and spray 12 muffin tins with non-stick spray (I prefer BakeEasy). Get a bowl and mix the pumpkin and cake mix together - the batter will be STIFF. Divide the dough among the 12 muffin tins and then bake for 15-20 minutes.

When you use a chocolate cake mix, it masks the taste of the pumpkin (also, it can be difficult to tell when they are done... monitor carefully). If you want to enjoy the pumpkiny taste pick a vanilla, spice, or my favorite... Funfetti cake mix :)

180 calories per super decadent, rich muffincupcake. With plenty of beta carotene and some fiber! You are welcome :)
