Food Weakness of the Week
I am not ashamed to admit it: I have a huge obsession with all things Pumpkin Spice.
My wallet takes a bit of a hit (as does my health) when the lattes make their appearance at Starbucks in the fall.
I even own Philosophy’s Pumpkin Spice Muffin lip gloss.
On Sunday, I found myself craving Pumpkin Spice. Of course, within a matter of minutes, I found a recipe that was just way too easy. It is quite popular on food blogs, and now I can see why…
Two Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Muffins
1 Box of Spice Cake Mix
1 Can of Pumpkin (not Pumpkin Pie)
I just followed the directions on the box, subbing the pumpkin in place of the usual wet ingredients (water, egg, butter). I had to bake them a little bit longer, but I was using the lower suggested heat setting because I was afraid to burn the muffins.
These babies are dangerous. I put half of them in the freezer so that I would be mindful about eating them. Even after a few days, the muffins are still incredibly soft and fluffy.
Now, of course, I want to try using pumpkin with other box mixes…
Or a gluten-free mix.
I’ll get back to you on that…
