Have you ever come across a recipe so easy that you wonder how good it could REALLY be with so few ingredients and such a short prep time?
This was my thinking when my mother shared her recipe for
"Pumpkin Spice Cake"!
I really wondered how good this could be. Then I tried it! YUMMMMMMM!
Make sure to pin this recipe if you're on Pinterest...you're gonna want to have this one handy!!! =D
These are perfect with your morning coffee or for a nice breakfast food to bring for a breakfast party or wedding/baby shower.
It's also a great dessert for get-togethers when you need to whip up something yummy really fast! Add a little cream cheese frosting and WOW!
So, for a recent prayer breakfast, I decided to make these in muffin form. I am truly all about easy, but I also want things to be tasty, so I thought this would be a great recipe to make for my friends who came to join me.
This recipe consists of only 3 INGREDIENTS!!!
1 Box of Spice Cake Mix
1 15 oz can of pumpkin
1 bag of Hershey's Cinnamon Chips
Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix with a hand mixer....
Until the mixture looks like this....
Then....scoop large spoonfuls of the batter into a greased 9x13 cake pan, or into greased muffin tins (which is what I did)
And bake according to the cake mix directions.
One thing you will definitely want to do (which I didn't do) is make sure that the dough is smoothed out going into the oven. The dough doesn't rise a whole lot (since you don't have eggs) and kind of retains the shape you had when you put the dough in....so if you're making it as a cake, make sure to smooth out the top...for muffins, just kind of making sure that the dough is smoothed out at the top should help.
This makes a very moist muffin or cake, that stays good for quite a while if well covered.
Here is how the mini muffins turned out.
I only needed a few for the ladies, and since I'm low carbing, I can't eat them...even though I would LOVE TO, (and my daughter isn't crazy about breads so she wasn't interested in having any), so the remainder were available for my husband and my son....and they LOVE THEM!
They've gobbled up so many since I made them, just a few days ago....haha! My husband told me that I can't make these very often if I want him to stay thin...haha! He just can't get enough!
Hope you enjoy this recipe! If you make it, I'd love to hear what YOU think!
Thanks again for visiting and I hope to see you again soon!
