Our first entry on Pumpkin Palooza is an EASY recipe. I originally published this as part of a Pinterest Challenge and I ended up using several different cake mixes. I would recommend spice cake for best taste.
Start with a box cake mix and a 15 ounce can of pumpkin. You add - NOTHING! That's right, two ingredients. No eggs, oil, water or vanilla extract - NADA!
There must be more ingredients. The result is probably dry. The whole thing will taste like pumpkin. NOPE. You can use any kind of cake mix you want. I wanted to make a bunch of cupcake/muffins, so I tried spice, yellow and devil's food cake mixes. (I understand these are considered fairly healthy and even have a Weight Watcher point value somewhere.)
Just mix the pumpkin and the cake mix with an electric beater
Spoon into muffin/cupcake tins lined with cupcake papers, and after 23 minutes at 350 degrees, you get this for the spice muffins:
And this for the chocolate/devil's food cake (these are actually pre-baking):
Success! Pumpkin Palooza is on!
