Pumpkin


I didn't believe it, so I had to try it for myself.

Stir one box of Cake mix with one 15 ounce can of Pumpkin.

Fill muffin pan holes 2/3 full. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes
and
waalaah
~Pumpkin Muffins~

I made mini-muffins so I baked for about 12 minutes.
I also added 1 1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice because I just couldn't imagine using only 2 ingredients.

I can't wait to do this again with a box of carrot cake mix and then I will glaze with powdered sugar icing.  I may even dare a chocolate cake mix. 




I love pumpkin and have already stocked my pantry shelves with 14 cans.  That will last well through the Holiday Season plus more for later.  I even eat it straight from the can and so did all of my babies.  

Soon, I will begin baking Pumpkin Pies of which I follow the recipe on the back of the Libby's can, but I always DOUBLE the amount of spices it calls for.  That is how my mom taught me and I really like all the flavor.

Also Pumpkin Cornbread and Creamy Ginger-Pumpkin Soup will be on the menu this month. 

Once, my grandmother fed her baby so many carrots from the abundance of the garden that her baby turned orange-toned.  I'm curious if that could happen from eating to much pumpkin.  We will soon see :)

I love it too! Your recipes sound great. Kayli turned orange around her nose ad a baby and the pediatrician said it was from the orange foods she was eating. I was surprised because she ate a good variety but maybe some are more prone to it.

I always double or triple the spices. I am a dump cook. I just keep dumping!

Sounds fantastic! I would love to try that muffin recipe. So easy even I can't mess it up! =)

We are pumpkin lovers around here, too, with the exception of Michael. I just got 23 cup of pumpkin processed through the squeezo and frozen in bags. Enough pumpkin for the year!

This is the same recipe that someone gave me at weigh watchers a couple years ago. The only difference is I use Duncan Hines spice cake mix. When I made them for my daughters cross country team I added mini choc. chips.

p.s. this is Paul's cousin Suzanne (Tom and Genny's daughter) I love that you started to blog again its great to be able to see what going on in my favorite cousins family life!
