We're friends, so I'll call a spade a spade with you; when it comes to baking, I have high expectations, with minimal ability. Great combination, right? I plan on recruiting the talents (and patience) of my Mum, in learning to bake (and share with you), but for now... let's keep things simple. I wanted something that was easy, quick, and yummy. I had been noting this three ingredient muffin recipe all over the internet, which appeared to offer full-on fall flavour; combining pure pumpkin, spice cake mix, and chocolate chips... what more could I ask for?! I couldn't wait to try it, so I took a dreary Saturday morning and whipped up these bad boys. They were definitely easy and super quick! The kids loved them (huge bonus, because pumpkin is the new "super food" full of antioxidants) and they definitely gave me the pumpkin-spice fix I was needing. I'll be candid, they're not "from scratch" tasting, but pretty close. Oh, and they don't come out overly cute - more of the lumpy look (so perhaps, not what you'll be bringing to the next bake sale). However, I would definitely make them again. Next time, I might get a little adventurous (ha)!) and opt for walnuts instead of the chocolate chips. The recipe does say you can switch the spice cake mix for chocolate, but I think I'd keep that the same as I really enjoy the combination of pumpkin and spice. Here is the recipe should you wish to try it for yourself (and you should): Ingredients: -1 Box of Cake Mix (Chocolate or Spice) -1 15oz Can (or 1 3/4 cups) of Pure Pumpkin (I couldn't buy a smaller can, so I used half of a larger one) -1/2 Cup of Chocolate Chips Directions: -Preheat oven to 350 F -Combine all ingredients in a medium size bowl -Grease or paper line muffin tins -Bake for 18-22 minutes, or until a toothpick poked into the middle comes out clean Yields: 12 muffins What are some of your favourite fall baked goods?
