Cake Mix Pumpkin Muffins

Earlier in the summer I was sent a gift from a special friend, Laura of Finding Home. She passed a sweet apron on to me that she had received from KariAnne of Thistlewood Farms. The apron is part of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Apron started by Meggie of Meggie on the Prairie. The apron was lovingly sewn by Susan of My Mother’s Apron Strings.

It is all about friendships and creating relationships. I am so blessed to have made some great friends along this blogging journey.

So with an apron comes cooking right?

I have a confession… I absolutely love anything pumpkin flavored. Yep, add some pumpkin and I am all over it. I may actually do a little happy dance when the pumpkin coffee arrives each fall at my local coffee shops.

So now that you know that about me, let’s talk baking with pumpkin. Specifically muffins, and how to bake them simply and easily… cause that is how I bake.

Each of these recipes is really simple and so good!

The first one I made was with pumpkin pie filling. The pumpkin pie filling already has all the spices in it and it was incredible…

Pumpkin Pie Muffins

1 Box Yellow Cake Mix

15 oz. Pumpkin Pie Filling { I used Libby’s }

2 Eggs

Brown Sugar {to sprinkle on top}

Directions:

In a medium sized bowl, mix the pumpkin pie filling with the eggs and water. Add the cake mix to the pumpkin mixture and mix together. Mixture will be a little lumpy. 

Pour mixture into a greased muffin pan, filling each about 2/3 each. 

Bake in pre-heated oven at 325 degrees for 19-22 minutes. 

After taking the muffins out of the oven, sprinkle each muffin with brown sugar .

Servings:
