Simple Cooking - Pumpkin Pie Muffins

18 ounces spice cake mix
15 ounces pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)

Simply mix the pumpkin and the spice cake mix together with electric mixer until well combined. (At this point you may also want to throw in some nuts or raisins, if you like.). Spoon into paper lined small muffin/cupcake tins, 2/3 full. (The batter is very thick and doesn't "settle", so you may wish to smooth the tops if you care what the finished product looks like!). Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

If you have a quick and easy recipe to share, please send it to You'll get a cookbook if we use your recipe.
