We've made these a dozen or more times--we have a good friend who has milk and egg allergies! SO GREAT AND EASY! I use a store-bought chocolate cake mix (instead of yellow) and don't mention the pumpkin--and the kids love my "Ugly Chocolate Muffins." I've never figured out how to make the dough (and thus final product) look pretty, but they taste great. I've tried it with and without the spices--it's better with, but kids still like it without. Spice cake is a better option than yellow, but chocolate gets the best feedback from my kids. We have also, on occasion, added mini chocolate chips with success.
However, once I tried substituting a gluten-free cake mix and it went terribly (didn't cook right, had weird consistency, and the kids refused to eat them). Overall, a HUGE success!
