Favorite PUMPKIN Recipes!

Bake at 350My buddy Bridget of Bake at 350 host’s a party titled Flavor of the Month at the end of each month. (her party will start this evening – so I’ll link this post up then)

This month’s flavor is PUMPKIN!

I have been having FUN with Pumpkin this month!! It’s one of our favorite flavors and can be used so many ways! I have several pumpkin recipes to share!

Actually the first Pumpkin recipe I tried, was one Bridget posted for

Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins

Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins

Yield: 18 large or 43 mini muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 1 can (15 oz) solid pumpkin (pumpkin puree)
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (plus extra to sprinkle on top)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons of water

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  2. Spray the insides of your muffin liners with no-stick spray and place in muffin tins.
  3. Using a large bowl, whisk the egg whites until a little foamy.
  4. Add in the cake mix, pumpkin, chocolate chips, and water and stir until well-blended. Use an ice cream scooper to fill prepared baking cups about 2/3 full. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean; about 18-20 minutes for full-size muffins or 10-15 minutes for mini muffins
  5. Sprinkle with a few mini chocolate chips as soon as they come out of the oven!
  6. Remove muffins from pans and let cool on a rack.

Notes

The muffins will stick to the paper if you don't spay the paper liners.

Variations: Try switching up the cake mix flavor. Spice Cake, Vanilla, or Butter cake would all be wonderful with this recipe
