Pinterest-Pumpkin Muffins

It sounded like a great idea. This idea from Pinterest that is.

One box of cake mix and a can of pumpkin. Well that's quick and easy. To make it better, I love pumpkin muffins!

So let's try this out.

 Pumpkin needs spice, so I chose a spice cake. Oh and chocolate. Must have chocolate.
 Toss it all in a bowl. I used about a 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips.
 Start mixing it up.
 It's very very thick.
 I could not mix out all the little bits of cake.
 They do not spread out in the muffin cups.

 Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes.
 They have a very rough texture.

Fresh from the oven. Crumbly and dry. But keep reading...

They tasted pretty good. Not great, but good. I was not overly impressed but I know I will revisit this recipe. Next time I will add just a little water to thin it out. Maybe 1/4 cup and see what happens.

I stored the muffins in a ziploc bag, after the 2nd and even better the 3rd day the muffins were very moist and well worth eating.

I'm still going to add just a bit of water. Just because I don't like the rough, course texture.

So yes, go ahead and use this pin. Use water if you want or not. I think there is leeway in this recipe.
