Well, it only took me an hour and a half to get to work on Monday (usually it takes me 25-30 minutes…) It seems the amount of snow + budget cuts (?) equals terrible driving conditons, roads not paved well and tons of cars (and semi trucks!) in the ditch and blocking complete roads. Hopefully within a day or two things will be better!
Yesterday I was reading Shanna’s blog – and I saw the super easy fudge recipe she used — and it made me think of an old favorite: cake mix + can of pumpkin + chocolate chips = easy muffins.
I have been a baking fiend lately, and yesterday was no exception.
Easy Peasy Pumpkiny Muffiny
1 box cake mix (spice cake, yellow cake or devils food cake would work well)
1 15oz. can pumpkin
1/2 bag chocolate chips (or maybe pecans?)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (or whatever the box mix specifies). Combine the cake mix with the pumpkin — keep stirring, it WILL eventually combine 🙂 Throw in chocolate chips and fold together. Drop by spoonfuls into prepared muffin tins (or muffin liners) – batter will be pretty thick. Bake for 17-20 minutes (or whatever the box mix specifies).
Out of the oven:
As you can see, they don’t “rise” much — but they are pretty dense little muffins.
I want to say thank you to Katie for sending me this adorable prize (I won her blogiversary giveaway):
Can you tell what it is? (not the chocolate bar…) It is a CUPCAKE HAT!!!
Katie I absolutely love it — and I have worn it every.single.day since I got it!
Question: What is your favorite muffin? Banana nut is my favorite, and Averie’s recipe is really really good 🙂
