Since it's officially fall in Florida (meaning, I have put out my fall decorations), I think it's about time to share a great recipe that I did not invent. A friend shared this recipe with me, and I will now share it with you.
1 box of Duncan Hines Spiced Cake ($1.79 at Publix)
1 15oz can of Libby's canned Pumpkin ($1.59 at Publix)
Mix both ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit in a cupcake pan for 15-18 minutes. Makes 18-24 muffins.
It's really that easy!
I searched for nutrition facts, and found them here.
Now, I baked mine in this adorable cupcake pan made by Nordic Ware. Baker's Joy cooking spray is a must-have, because it has flour in the spray. Nordic Ware and Baker's Joy helped me create adorable leaf-shaped muffins!
Even though I'm not including the pan cost in the total recipe cost, I'll let you know the pan was $18.00 at Walmart. Most Nordic Ware bakeware is $30-$40. Not bad, Walmart. With the combined cost of Baker's Joy ($2.50 at Publix, but only used half a can), cake mix and pumpkin, the cost per muffin is approximately $.26. That's a deal.
Two ingredients + moist, delicious taste + affordable price + adorable presentation + fairly healthy = perfect holiday treat.
