Pinterest Muffins

We are all addicted to Pinterest. I thought I would actually try a recipe rather than just pin it and forget it. Pumpkin puree and a yellow cake mix, that's it? I didn't do much research on this recipe other than reading the caption on the pin. I did add some cinnamon and nutmeg. I just put them in a bowl and stirred them together with a rubber spatula. The muffin tins were quite full. There were little pellets of cake mix that didn't dissolve, but I just stuck with the plan. I baked for 25 minutes. They didn't change much in appearance. The taste? I give them a B. They were really dense. The flavor was subtle pumpkin, not too sweet. After I tried mine, I got online to see what other people did. One person added icing, another powdered sugar. If I made this recipe again, I would definitely use my mixer to generate more air. I would also try it in a bread pan rather than muffins. I love pumpkin anything, but this might not be the best recipe for me. I love to bake, so I wouldn't mind the extra work to get a better result.

They look pretty and sound good with a cup of coffee in the morning.
