How to Make Pumpkin Spice Muffins for Fall

Last week, a friend told me her family enjoys the recipe I gave her several years ago for spice muffins made from a cake mix.

They’re so easy!

Spice Butterscotch Muffins for Fall

I got the recipe originally from D, my friend from the old neighborhood in Georgia.  There are different variations you can make, but let’s start with the basic recipe.

Canned pumpkin takes the place of eggs, and the results are perfectly moist muffins.

It takes only a couple of minutes to stir together the five ingredients.  Load the batter into greased muffin tins…and then bake for twenty minutes.

Butterscotch chips are very good in these muffins.

You can also use white baking chips if you’d like to try those.

I’ve made the chocolate cake mix and white baking chips combination several times.

It’s very good, and I’ll bet the carrot cake mix would be delicious with the white baking chips.  I can’t say why I’ve never tried the carrot cake version because it sounds very good, too.

    These sound delicious! I am soooo ready for Fall. Sitting on my porch with my morning coffee, it is already hot here in SC with about 1000% humidity. Ugh!! Have a wonderful weekend.

      Thank you, Roxanne. I hear you. It’s humid here, too…and at this moment raining while still so hot. Yes, we anxiously await those cooler days on the porch, coffee in hand. Happy Friday!
