Easy Peasy Pumpkin Muffins

Location: Campbellsville, KY (High 95, Low 66)

One of my favorite things about the fall season is the arrival of pumpkin food items, like pumpkin creamer and pumpkin pies. So I was interested to see an unusually simple recipe for pumpkin muffins on Facebook the other day. I read some of the comments people had made on the photo, and they were so positive that I decided to give it a try.



It doesn’t get much easier than this – the ingredients are simply a box of spice cake mix and a large can of pumpkin. Nothing else…no oil, no eggs, no nothing!



The recipe itself says mix those two items and bake. However, one of the commenters said that the muffins had come out a bit dense so she had added water the next time. So I took about a 2/3 cup of water and added some until the batter seemed like a “normal” consistency. I didn’t quite use all of the 2/3 cup.


Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

That’s it! Yummy pumpkin muffins that couldn’t be easier to make.



  1. Unfortunately Craig doesn't care for pumpkin, and if I made them I would eat them all. Hey, maybe I could make them and freeze half! I'll be looking for a spice cake mix soon.

  2. Pumpkin is my favorite pie (next to Sweet Potato) so I'll just have to try these. Thanks.
