Like most people, I’ve been on the lookout for pumpkin. In general, I don’t go crazy over pumpkin. I don’t really want pumpkin flavored oatmeal and I’d take a chocolate chip cookie over a pumpkin one any day. Pumpkin belongs in pie and those delicious pumpkin rolls. But other than that, I can take or leave pumpkin.
Except in these:
These are why I’ve been searching for pumpkin, and why I bought seven cans of it last week. Two ingredients, one awesome result.
Chocolate Pumpkin Cake Muffins
- 1 box devil’s food cake mix
- 1 15oz. can pumpkin
Mix well, until cake mix is completely absorbed. Spoon into cupcake liners. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Makes 12.
I think this recipe is originally a Weight Watcher’s one? My friend Richele gave it to me a few years back.
The muffins come out incredibly soft and delicious. And I think they’re each about 180 calories? Not bad for cake!
What’s your favorite use of pumpkin? I also like pumpkin for superfood muffins!
Note: If you type “pumpkin” too many times it starts to look completely wrong. I actually googled it just to doublecheck I was spelling it right!
