One of my favorite things to eat in the fall is pumpkin and this recipe is amazing. The recipe is easy as it starts with a box of spice cake mix. But feel free to use your own recipe for spice cake! Pumpkin muffins are delicious for breakfast or for an afternoon break with a cup a tea.
This recipe is so easy because you use a BOX of spice cake mix. DO NOT FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON THE BOX!
- 1 pre-packaged box of Spice Cake; do not follow the box directions.
- 1 can of pumpkin, 15 ounce size
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 12 oz package chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 2 TBSP butter
- 2 TBSP oatmeal
Add the cake mix to a mixing bowl.
Then add the can of pumpkin, sour cream, vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla and combine until smooth; using either an electric mixer or wooden spoon.
Gently stir in the chocolate chips.
Spoon into your muffin pans.
This recipe should make 24 muffins, depending on the size of your pans.
I used an ice cream scoop and I always spray my muffin liners.
Combine the Crumb Topping ingredients in a bowl and using a pastry cutter, or two knives, and cut the butter into the mixture until you have crumbs.
Add one tablespoon of the crumb topping to the top of each muffin.
Bake at 350 for about 20 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted
in the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
