Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Fall season is here and we have yet to see a full day of fall weather. I live for crisp mornings, when I can go outside and cuddle up with a cup of coffee. Simply heaven. 

Coffee [or hot cider] + baked goods are fall essentials! I love to bake. Especially during the fall and winter months. Did you know I operate a home-based baking business? Yes, I love it that much. I don't dedicate much time to it since I work full-time, but I still have my licensing...just in case! :)

As much as I love baking, I don't always have time to do so. When I fell upon this muffin recipe on Pinterest I knew it was something I needed to try. I mean really...2 ingredients? Nah, too good to be true, right? You guys. Let me tell you! These muffins are full of flavor and super moist! 

You heard it right! Just 2 ingredients! As M would say, easy peasy lemon squeezy!

What you need: 
1 can of pumpkin puree
1 box of yellow or spice cake mix [I used a Spice flavor]

When he can, M likes to help in the kitchen and this was such an easy recipe for us to make together. In a small bowl, dump both ingredients in. DO NOT FOLLOW THE RECIPE ON THE BACK OF THE CAKE BOX. You only need the puree and the cake mix. No more. 

I felt like it was missing something..so I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. You don't have to...the baker in me couldn't help it! 

Isn't M such a good helper?! After dumping the ingredients together, mix everything. We [M left at this point...he got tired of mixing] used the same spatula to mix everything...note to self: use a mixer next time around. The mixture is tough! 

Scoop into muffin tins 3/4 full and bake at 350 degrees until lightly browned on top.

 I made regular and mini sized muffins. The mini sized muffins are great for lunches! M loves them! You can also add chocolate chips or chopped pecans for an added treat. 

These pumpkin muffins are seriously the easiest to make! Perfect coffee and pumpkin muffin pairing!!!
