Pumpkin Muffin Batter

  • 1 Spice Cake Mix
  • 1 can pumpkin
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water

Streusel Topping

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter


Pumpkin Muffin Batter

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a muffin pan with paper cups. Put the muffin pan until the muffin batter is mixed.

  2. Put the cake mix, eggs, pumpkin, and water into a large mixing bowl.

  3. Mix all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon until mixed. Be aware the batter will be dense, not runny like typical cake mix batter.

  4. Prepare a muffin pan by placing paper . Fill the muffin cups about 2/3 to 3/4 full – then pop them into a preheated oven and let the magic happen!

  5. Once the batter is mixed, use a cookie scoop and fill the muffin cups about 2/3 to 3/4 full. You will have 18 muffins when finished. Then pop them into a preheated oven and let the magic happen! (If topping with streusel do it before baking.)

  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes.

  7. After baking, allow the muffins to cool completely. If you place the hot pans on a cake rack they will cool more quickly.

Streusel Topping

  1. Mix flour and sugar together.

  2. Cut the butter into the flour and sugar mixture.

  3. Place a couple of teaspoonfuls on each muffin before baking.
