Cake mix is the secret “ingredient” to making quick and easy muffin recipes. This might not be a secret to you, but the spice cake mix is absolutely perfect for making moist and delicious pumpkin muffins. They’re even better with chocolate chips!
This recipe is so simple, you won’t even need to refer to it in the future. Simply mix a can of pumpkin puree with a box of spice cake mix, and then dump in a bunch of chocolate chips. Easy, peasy.
By the end of October, my blood type is pumpkin spice.
Just make sure you are using Pumpkin puree, NOT pumpkin pie mix. The pumpkin pie mix is sweetened and seasoned which you don’t need because the box cake already has enough of that.
The batter will be very thick, but don’t you worry. Once you get it all mixed up it’s perfect for these delicious and super moist pumpkin muffins.
I’ve also tried this recipe with raisins instead of the chocolate chips, and then spread a little cream cheese on top before eating. Yum! Don’t be afraid to experiment. You can also add in a little extra pumpkin spice or cinnamon if you would like.
This Fall recipe is a family favorite! Not just because it's super easy, but we love the flavor and texture of these simple muffins. Spread a little cream cheese on top, and they're even better!
- 1 box spice cake mix
- 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
- 1-2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and grease a muffin pan or line it with muffin liners.
In a large bowl, mix together the spice cake mix and pumpkin puree until well blended. The batter will be very thick!
Fold in one or more cups of chocolate chips to the batter.
Evenly distribute the batter into your muffin pan (each cup should be about 3/4 full). Add more chocolate chips on top if you would like. Why not, right?
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean (if you are making mini muffins, you will probably need to cut the baking time in half).
