These muffins are definitely not a member of the “brownie” family so don’t let the name deceive you. My definition of a brownie demands a moist chewy fudgy-ness that is not found in this muffin recipe. As long as you approach these chocolatey bread puffs with an open mind, they are really awesome. Another great quality of this recipe is simplicity! Two ingredients! Never thought you hear that about a baking recipe huh?! Well its not entirely true since one of the ingredients is a boxed cake mix. I don’t have much else to say about the muffins. I definitely recommend trying them, they’re super easy and tasty. I plan to try them again with a different cake mix so I’ll post that and let you know how it goes. Sometimes experimenting with my own ideas doesn’t work out so well. 🙂
PS. This is also from my Hungry Girl cookbook.
“Yum Yum Brownie Muffins” (yes thats seriously what they called it)
1 box devil’s food cake mix (about 18 ounces)
One 15-ounce can pure pumpkin
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix the two ingredients together. Don’t add anything else that may be mentioned on the box, like eggs, oil or water. The mixture will be very thick, so you might be tempted to add in other things to make the batter smoother. Do NOT do this! Place batter into a 12-cup muffin pan lined with baking cups or sprayed with nonstick spray. Place pan in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. MAKES 12 SERVINGS.
