Pumpkin Cupcake Muffins

Simple two ingredient recipe.
Prep Time 12 minutes
Cook Time 18 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 16 -18 muffins


  • 1 can of Pure Pumpkin Puree 15 ounce can
  • 1 box of Spice Cake Mix
  • Optional: Sugar or Sugar Sprinkles for the tops


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare two muffin pans with either cupcake liners or a generous layer of cooking spray.
  2. Add both the can of pumpkin puree and the box of cake mix to a large bowl then mix until the two ingredients are well combined. The batter will be thick.
  3. Scoop a heaping tablespoon of batter into each muffin tin. Fill them to just below the rim.
  4. Spray the back of a tablespoon with cooking spray and lightly smooth the tops of each cupcake muffin. (They get a little crazy looking if you don’t smooth them out but they taste just the same so you decide on smooth-ER or not.) If desired, sprinkle sugar onto the muffins.
  5. Then bake them for 18 minutes (or until the cupcake muffins pass the toothpick test). Allow them to sit in the pan for two minutes before placing them on a cooling rack. If you used cupcake liners it is easier to pull them off before the muffins cool completely. Enjoy!
