How to make Cake Mix Pumpkin Spice Muffins

This is where I would add lots of steps and directions for a recipe – but there really aren’t many to share! haha!

1. Add ingredients

Add cake mix (which could be ANY of your favorite box mixes) to a large bowl, add in one can of REAL pumpkin (not the pumpkin pie canned stuff), and then add in 3/4 cup of water.

I know…I said two ingredients – but water really doesn’t count since it’s – water.

2. Mix

Mix well and add to a mini muffin pan with or without muffin liners. I like to use a small size cookie scoop to add the muffin mix into the muffin pan. It’s the perfect amount!

3. Bake

Bake at 325 degrees for about 12-14 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean or the center bounces back when touched gently.

4. Cool

Cool in muffin pan for 5 minutes and remove to a wire wrack to cool. This recipe will make about 36 mini muffins. Again – it’s only TWO Weight Watchers Special Points a piece!

Don’t worry, I double checked the points on the connect app with a chat specialist! 🙂

Tips to make healthy pumpkin muffins

To make this perfect fall treat, here are some easy and simple tips.

Top Tips

Make certain that you spray the prepared muffin tin with non stick spray. This keeps these spiced pumpkin muffins from sticking to the pan. Cupcake liners work as well!


How do you make pumpkin muffins from cake mix?

I was excited to find this new Pillsbury Perfectly Pumpkin Cake Mix at the store and knew it would be perfect for this recipe! Having the pumpkin spice right in the mix would bring the exact flavor I wanted with ease.

Your whole house will smell of pumpkin spice and that is a beautiful thing. This easy recipe is what makes the pumpkin season so awesome. Add it to your list of pumpkin desserts.

What toppings go well with these fluffy muffins?

So many toppings work! You can add an ice cream scoop of ice cream, a little sugar sprinkled on top, a dash of powdered sugar, or even a drizzle of maple glaze. I also love to add some maple syrup to the top of each muffin as well. And let’s not forget cream cheese frosting! The muffins tops are one of the best things as are but you can always add and change it up next time.

What other ingredients can be added?

You can turn this treat into pumpkin chocolate chip muffins as well by adding chocolate chips to this muffin batter. The best part about pumpkin recipes is that you can change them up easily.

That’s it! Two-Ingredient Pumpkin Spice  Muffins that are easy to make, light and fluffy AND delicious! You can’t beat this easy pumpkin dessert recipe for ease and taste!

  1. Are we supposed to spray the muffin pan before adding the mix?
