Ingredients in pumpkin spice muffins

This recipe is made with a box of spice cake mix, flour, eggs, pumpkin pie filling, and more. The canned pumpkin pie filling isn’t the same thing has pumpkin puree. Canned pumpkin pie filling is a pumpkin blend of pumpkin, seasonings, and more. So this is going to add a lot to the flavor of this recipe.

Special notes about this recipe

Pumpkin is very dense, I find it helpful to make sure I beat this with a mixer for a full 2 minutes. This way air is whipped into the cake mix, and it helps make what could be super dense into something much lighter.

Potential Variations

You may want to omit the brown sugar on the top if you are trying to cut back on the sugar, it isn’t super necessary. I have sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top before. You may even want to top these with cream cheese frosting.

      I have made these cupcakes for years. Everybody falls in love with them. I cook them for exactly 30 minutes and they come out perfect. I have them on the middle rack at 350°. Perhaps after 1 hour, after they have cooled, do they firm up and seem more cooked through?

    Well, Miss Stephanie, you nailed it!

    They smell and look divine.

    The only thing that I did differently was add 2 teaspoons of baking powder. I’ve made them so many times over the years and that’s the only thing I do differently. Mind you, I don’t use the sam pumpkin pie mix so that probably has something to do with it.

    Keep up the awesome work.

    dissapointed because the smell was amazing..i used the baking soda as mentioned and they still did not raise and i cooked them for 40 minutes and still gooey inside…i think it must be something i did wrong i just don’t know what..i will try it again at another time though
