Yield:
12 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 (18 1/4-ounce) box devil's food cake mix
  • 1 (15-ounce) can 100-percent pure pumpkin
  • Fresh berries, for serving, optional
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Pour cake mix into a large bowl and whisk to remove any lumps. Add pumpkin and stir until completely smooth and uniform.

Cook's Note: Do not add any other ingredients that may be mentioned on the cake mix 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 foil baking cups and/or sprayed with nonstick spray. Place pan in the oven and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

Allow to cool slightly and then serve. Garnish with fresh berries, if using. Enjoy!

This was definitely approved by my family! They were fantastic! However, we added a few tablespoons of chocolate chips to the mix (4 year old's request). He even knew there was pumpkin in it and still enjoyed them. Super easy to make with little kids. I'm a from scratch baker, but mothers know that it can be way harder to bake scratch with littles helping. some days you want to appease their wish to bake without the headache of the mess. item not reviewed by moderator and published
What a waste of a can of pumpkin. Perfectly awful. I tasted one and then dumped the rest in the garbage, I am "from scratch" baker and a good one at that. I can see why some people would appreciate how easy these are to put together, but for those of us who really enjoy baking I'll stick to the real thing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are good! my kids reallly like them they have been eating them up! they are not super chocolatey.. and I wouldnt really consider them brownies by any means but they are a nice choc muffin without the 450 calories! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delish! healthy and my kids don't even know it's pumpkin item not reviewed by moderator and published
Does anyone have an alternate recipe to do from scratch instead of the mix? I'd really like to swap out the flour for wheat/almond flour, and use less/alternative sugar/sweetner... They are very tasty but with diabetics in mind, I'd like to lessen the carbs... item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were good, I was skeptical with the reviews below but we liked them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cannot say these taste like brownies but I thought they still turned out great - moist, not too sweet and so easy to make. My 5 year old son enjoyed them very much and my vegan friends loved the idea that our brownies included pumpkin. I did not have mini muffin liners but liked the rustic look of my brownie muffins when they were plated. Will definitely try other Hungry Girl recipes in the future. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I will not make these again; definitely will not serve to others. I rather have just one piece of the real thing every now & then. item not reviewed by moderator and published
LOVE THESE! Yum! Great way to sneak in some veggies. They are more like a really moist muffin. I would love to try this with spice cake, walnuts, and rum soaked raisins! item not reviewed by moderator and published
