Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
I was amazed at how easy this was, I'm glad I read all these reviews before I made it or I would have thought something was wrong with the mixture! I didn't want to pay extra for all the spices or even just pumpkin spice so I got pumpkin pie mix and yellow cake. Mine didn't come out as fluffy as the ones in the picture above, they looked more like little cornbread muffins, but the taste and moistness was amazing! I did add a little applesauce for more flavor and then some brown sugar (splenda) to counter the wet texture from the applesauce. When warm they were a tiny bit mushy but after wrapped in saran wrap overnight they were perfect the next day. Someone brought pumpkin pie to the pot luck so the muffins weren't devoured, but I got some compliments and my boyfriend gobbled them up at home! Next time I'll put more batter in each cup so they will be bigger, probably a few minutes more cooking time will be needed. Mine were pretty small even in a normal muffin pan and just cooked enough at 25 minutes. I can't wait to try other variations! I'm taking these to my family's Thanksgiving dinner for sure!
