Easiest Pumpkin Muffins

Ahhhh our weather is starting to cool off a little here in Texas!  It's so nice to be able to eat outside. 

 I've made us the easiest muffins that I shared almost two years ago, after seeing the recipe on Julie's blog ,but this time I added cinnamon chips.  Thanks,  Marsha!

Spacing these pretty muffins out on my favorite platter, makes for a pretty scene.  Any chance that I can use my Nordic Ware Autumn treats pan is a good thing.

This special mug was from a teacup/mug exchange years ago.  Do you remember, Vee?

This is my copycat version of a pillow I saw at Kirkland's from a couple of years ago.  I don't buy any new Fall decor, because I love everything that I have.

Yummy treats on a Fall leaf plate.

I had a very fun week of seeing Caiden with his braces off; a pep rally with Cissy holding the sign on the far right; homecoming game with Riley playing; my daughter's birthday;  Cissy and friends going to their first homecoming dance, and Ella winning all three volleyball games.

The pep rally was especially heartwarming on Friday, firstly with everyone standing at the National Anthem.   All the school teams are honored, there are fun competitions, but the best of all was how the school honored the special needs kids, and also the custodial staff.  The whole school cheered for all of them.  Truly, it's so nice to see that there is kindness, goodness and school spirit. Leaving the gym with an enormous smile on my face is a wonderful thing.

Yield: I got 12 regular muffins and 6 mini cakelets

Easiest Pumpkin Muffins

Easiest Pumpkin Muffins

These muffins are so easy, but so moist! They are even more moist the day after they are baked.


  • 1 box of Spice cake mix
  • 1 can pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon chips (could use butterscotch chips, raisins, nuts, etc.)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray  your muffin pan(s) and/or your cakelet pan.
  2. Add all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and blend until all the cake mix has disappeared.
  3. Fill the muffin pans about 3/4 of the way. 
  4. Bake for around 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. 
  5. Let stand in the pan for about 5 minutes before flipping out onto a cooling rack. 


These freeze beautifully!

Thank you for your visit!  xo

I am sharing this with:


  1. I often put chocolate chips in my pumpkin muffins but cinnamon chips are an even better idea! These look delicious and I just love these leaf shapes.

  4. Your muffins look so pretty and thanks for the shout out Kitty! This is the perfect time of year for making pumpkin muffins. I LOVE that pillow you made too. I hope you have a nice week Kitty.

  5. Copying and Pasting...

    It's a vague memory, Kitty. I give you permission to chuck it because it is chipped and I don't want anyone to get hurt. We have our picture. Let it go! 😁

    Well now, I have a can of pumpkin sitting around waiting for something yummy to bake.
    It's warmed up too much to bake today, but tomorrow is looking cool and rainy.

    So glad that you are able to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air.

    Everyone standing for the national anthem...☺️

  6. Those muffins look soooo good and so pretty! I had a slice of pumpkin bread with my coffee this morning. My oldest made us girls each a loaf. YUM! I love seeing the family pictures Kitty! Just precious to be a part of a loving family isn't it? Happy Week to you dear Kitty. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  7. That pep rally sounds like an amazing event! Sounds like people in Texas have some sense in their heads and are keeping "normalcy" alive in this deranged clown world we live in. God bless Texas, and God bless you and your loved ones, sweet friend.
