93 calories per muffin
Ingredients

  • 1 can of pumpkin
  • 1 box of spice cake

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven according the the directions of the spice cake. 
  2. Pour entire contents of pumpkin into a mixing bowl along with the box of spice cake. 
  3. Mix together until blended evenly. I used my stand-mixer, but I've also used a handheld mixer as well as my hands in the past. 
  4. Fill muffin tins 2/3 of the way full. Sprinkle cinnamon on each muffin.
  5. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes depending on how soft you want them in the middle. 
  6. Once you're done baking, sprinkle powdered sugar on top of each muffin and let cool.
