Oh my goodness this month has got the best of me so far. I have been so sad because I have barely had any time to blog this month and I do miss it. I have a couple of things I would love to get posted for Thanksgiving and start moving onto Christmas crafts… and the ‘Dash’ the elf antics before long! Why do the holidays seem to go by so quickly? I can’t be the only one that feels this way. I do have to say that 2018 has been one heck of a year for us but it has gone rather quickly. Can time slow down for a little bit, please!
I wanted to share with you all an amazing muffin recipe that I have loved to make for years now. One of my friends passed the recipe to me a while back and it has been a ‘go to’ fall recipe for our family now. Simple, yummy pumpkin recipes are literally my favorite this time of year. I am not one to fuss over pumpkin spice everything but if I get a chance to throw some pumpkin into desserts, I am totally all over that! These pumpkin muffins use two ingredients and you can add cream cheese frosting on top too! We have done them both ways and they taste amazing however you make them. The kids can even help out with this recipe!
Can of Pumpkin – 15oz
Optional – cream cheese frosting or cupcake liners
Dump cake mix and can of pumpkin into a bowl.
Mix super good – this step will take some time to do!
Spray the muffin pan with Pam or put in cupcake liners – split batch evenly between all 12 muffins. It will look lumpy and messy in the muffin tin. This is completely normal.
Cook at 350 degrees for 20 minutes – the recipe yields 12 muffins.
If you decide to put frosting on them, make sure they have cooled off completely. These pumpkin muffins are delicious with and without frosting on them too. I know my household will eat them both ways! These pumpkin spice muffins are so quick to make on busy weekends when you need a dessert or snack to bring to an event – even Thanksgiving! Stay tuned as I will try to get a couple more desserts posted before the holiday weekend. I am bummed that I was not able to do more during this month, but hey, we all do get busy. We have been consumed with school, football, and tons of kids here with me working long hours. I always seem to have high hopes and get disappointed when I am not able to get it all done. We have a long weekend ahead of us so plan to hear a lot from me and get back on track. I hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving holiday!
