The original recipe is simple.
It states that you need two ingredients. Just the can of pumpkin and a cake mix.
I must admit that I am a non-believer. I tried but my mix was still mostly powder. I added an egg and a dash or two of water until it looked more like cake/muffin batter.
Oh yeah….I am also not on weight watchers. Big surprise there, right?
So I added chocolate chips.
And you know what I discovered?
Everybody on Pinterest is right, they are the best muffins ever….with a bit of tweaking.
Note above I didn’t use a dull yellow cake either. I used a spice cake mix because if I was making a pumpkin pie I would have added pumpkin spice. Much less trouble than getting my measuring spoons dirty.
