2 Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins

Have you ever heard of Pinterest? If you haven’t, you need to check it out immediately. But it’s addicting so if you don’t have ample time (like me), maybe you shouldn’t. I find myself jumping on there every time Noah is asleep or playing with daddy. You can organize all your recipes (or any other thing….style, decor, DIY, baby items) onto boards and you can browse other people’s pins for inspiration.

This “recipe” is one that I found via Pinterest and I pretty much ran out to get the ingredients as soon as possible. I love anything and everything pumpkin and these muffins were no exception. They were moist and dense and turns out they are pretty healthy (an old Weight Watchers recipe).

I’m sure you all are wondering what the two ingredients are by now. Cake mix and a can of pumpkin. That’s it. After reading through the comments on the blog that I discovered this recipe on, I found that some people have made these with a chocolate or spice cake mix rather than yellow. I chose to go with spice because spicy pumpkin just sounded irresistable.

And finally, there is a batter that Noah can nosh on. He wasn’t so sure about it at first…he doesn’t like to get dirty.

But once he got past the mess, he was hooked.

And licked the spatula clean.

2 Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins
recipe from Sweet Verbena

1 can pumpkin
1 box cake mix

Mix together ingredients and divide into 12 muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes.

NOTE: These would be great with mini chocolate chips and/or walnuts mixed in.

  2. I also found this recipe on Pinterest. Soooo good with cream cheese fronting on top! It’s my “go-to” dessert when someone ask me to bring something to a party at the last minute.

  10. I was totally inspired by this recipe. I had a leftover pumpkin pie in the fridge that just wasn’t going to get eaten. So I took a box of cake mix (happened to be chocolate) and added the pumpkin pie filling. I added 1egg (box called for 3) and 1/2 cup water, and made muffins. They were so moist and delicious. Thanks for the inspiration.
