Two Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins

I think my love for all things Fall is well established.  So when I first heard about this recipe a few weeks ago from someone on Twitter, I knew I had to try it.  Unfortunately, the person on Twitter didn’t mention what the 2 ingredients were, so I had to do some research.  I eventually learned that all you needed for this recipe is a box of spice cake mix and a can of pure pumpkin.  How easy is that?  I found several bloggers had tried it, but they had all added to it in some way (nutmeg, cinnamon, etc.).  I soon became determined to try it in its original 2 ingredient form.  To make it even better, I found some references to this being an old Weight Watcher’s recipe.  A simple recipe that isn’t so bad for you?  I’m in!

What you will need: (makes about 15 muffins)

1 spice cake mix

1 can of pure pumpkin

Step 1 – Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease muffin cups or use cupcake liners.

Step 2 – Mix both ingredients until smooth.  The pumpkin makes this step difficult.  I used my mixer on high for about 2 1/2 – 3 minutes.

Step 4 – Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.

Step 5 – Bake for 19 minutes.

Step 6 – Remove from oven and allow to cool.

These took about 25 minutes, total.  About 5-6 minutes prep time and 19 minutes in the oven.  They are so incredibly good.  The hardest part for me was finding a spice cake mix.  I went to 3 different sores before I finally found one.  Yep, that’s right, I went to more stores to find the ingredients, than actual ingredients in the recipe.  Definitely worth it though.

In the end I couldn’t help but adding a third ingredient.  There goes the “not so bad for you” part of the recipe.
