Happy Fall Y'all!
Can't you just feel it in the air?! It's finally that gorgeous time of year when the wind starts blowing and the leaves start rustling. The color schemes created by the trees and shrubs are just breathtaking and the slight chill in the air means only one thing: CHRISTMAS IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!!!! Okay, now that I got that out of my system, this time of year also means one other thing: Pumpkin. Oh how I love pumpkins. They are such a versatile gourd. Especially in the kitchen! Today I am sharing with you a recipe creation of my own! Okay, that's a lie. I have to give full credit for this recipe to my roommate, Kathryn. And I think she gives credit to Weight Watchers. Anyways, this morning I made Pumpkin muffins for breakfast and I might have to confess that I have already eaten 3 so far today. They are just so tempting. And of course they always win in my never ending battle of to eat or not to eat. The best part about this recipe is that there is hardly a recipe at all. Just 3 lonesome ingredients are all that stand in between you and your own delicious batch of pumpkinness!!
Simply add 15 oz. (1 small can) of pumkin to a traditional box yellow cake mix. Add one cup of water and bam. Pumpkin muffin mix. Bake these at 350 for about 25 minutes and you are all set!
I didn't even let these suckers cool. I ate them piping hot with a cup of delicious coffee (also compliments of my roommate, Kathryn-what would I do without her?). I think I have had a great day so far just becasue of this wonderful start to my day!!
I hope you are enjoying fall as much as I am :)
What are some of your favorite pumpkin recipes??
