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.
