2 Ingredients Pumpkin Muffins

This two-ingredient pumpkin muffin recipe is a fall and year-round family favorite. It’s perfect when the kids have friends over for a quick breakfast, snack, or dessert! Yes, this is ‘that’ easy recipe showing you how to make pumpkin muffins using YELLOW CAKE MIX and PUMPKIN. The cake mix makes the muffins taste DELICIOUS!

My daughter asked me to make Pumpkin Muffins, and I remember seeing these on TELEVISION COOKING SHOW. This is a fun recipe that you can make with your kids. Just give them a big wooden spoon to stir the batter!


A chef was showing easy 2 two-ingredient recipes; this was one of them! I will be making more two-ingredient recipes and sharing them with you.


 There is no oil, Eggs, or Water needed for this recipe; just a Yellow Cake Mix and a can of Pumpkin. Add Pumpkin Pie Spice for more flavor. I stocked up on Pumpkin last year. I couldn’t pass up the price for a 30-ounce can for $1.99! So my can in this picture is double the amount that I needed. I used half the can and the rest to make a Pumpkin Pie.

I even have a Pampered Chef muffin pan that I love! It doesn’t need greasing or spraying, and the muffins come out so quickly. It’s also Non-Stick!


Scoop 2 teaspoonful of batter for each muffin.


They look perfect! I made a couple of muffins a little bigger! Hubs gobbled those up!


Even better with a Cream Cheese Frosting! Sprinkle Pumpkin Spice on top of each muffin!

Have a friend who uses that same recipe and drops it by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet for pumpkin cookies. Have to get a spice cake mix when I go out..I have fresh cooked pumpkin in the freezer from last years Jack o Lantern. And some from the other day when I cooked up a couple small ones I was given. Will have more Nov 1 after Mr. O Lantern is .done.
