Cake mix recipes are a great way to make something homemade in a fraction of the time!
We are a big fan of these cake mix blueberry muffins, cake mix chocolate chip muffins, and cake mix banana muffins so we created a pumpkin version too!
These cake mix muffins only need 5 minutes to prep, and are ready from start to finish in just half an hour.
We are making these, cake mix apple cobbler, cake mix pumpkin bars, cake mix pumpkin cookies, and cake mix pumpkin bread on repeat this fall!
Perfect for when you want a pumpkin treat along with your homemade pumpkin cold brew.
How to make pumpkin muffins from cake mix
Step 1: Beat together a box of yellow cake mix, one can of pumpkin, the cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.
Step 2: Line a muffin tin with parchment paper liners (these will not stick to the muffins), and distribute the batter into 12 cups.
Tip: If you use regular liners, just spray them with cooking spray so that they do not stick.
Sprinkle the tops of the muffin batter with brown sugar.
This step is optional, but adds a nice touch!
Bake at 350 degrees for 22 – 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
How to customize these pumpkin muffins
To make gluten free: simply sub a box of your favorite gluten free yellow cake mix.
To make more wholesome: use a box of more natural cake mix and top with coconut sugar.
Other fun ways to change up these muffins would be to add toppings like mini chocolate chips or chopped walnuts or pecans in place of the brown sugar.
This recipe is so easy, and so customizable!
What does pumpkin replace in baking?
Pumpkin replaces oil or butter in baking, which is why we don’t need any in this recipe!
How do I store pumpkin muffins?
For best results, store muffins in an airtight container and eat within 2-4 days.
Line the airtight container with paper towels for best results.
