Pinterest Cooking

Hello all! I have decided that with pinning all these recipes to pinterest that I need to blog how they turn out so I'm starting that adventure tonight. Hopefully all of you will join my page and enjoy the recipes with me.

I'm starting with a fall favorite of many: PUMPKIN MUFFINS

I pinned this awhile back and decided that now was the time to try it. I've changed it up a little bit so here's the recipe: (I got the orginal recipe from and just tweaked the recipe by using a spice cake mix instead of a yellow Duncan Hines mix)

1 Betty Crocker Spice cake mix
1 15 oz. can great value pumpkin puree 
Mix together with a hand mixer or stand mixer. Batter will be quite thick. Then spoon into your muffin tins of choice, mine in this case were fall shaped, with leaves and pumpkins. Bake at 350*F for 20-25 minutes. Glaze or frost with your preference of frosting or glaze. 

I think they turned out wonderful and moist! 


  1. Do you like them better with the spice cake? I tried them with the yellow and it was lacking some spices. I was going to add cinnamon, nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice.

  2. Yes I thought it turned out very good with the spice cake. I didn't try it with the yellow cake mix. I took them for our dessert for Sunday Dinner today and they disappeared.
