Cake Mix Muffin Recipes

Once again, I have to thank the person who submitted the Weight Watchers muffin recipe using pumpkin and cake mix. My husband and I are responsible for donuts and muffins for our church on the first Sunday of every month.


I have been making a regular muffin, using oil and eggs and different flavorings for one kind, and in the last several months, I have just been adding 12 oz. of unsweetened, canned fruit to a box of cake mix, usually yellow. I've added cinnamon and nutmeg to the pumpkin and yellow cake mix, I've used unsweetened applesauce and nice, fresh apple chunks to another batch, and this month, I added 12 oz. of crushed pineapple.

Next month, I think I will add some cherries (I've canned some sour cherries made with fructose for pies), and I've yet to try mandarin oranges, but plan to. So far, we haven't had any left overs! If a recipe is necessary, this is what I have been doing:


Nothing else!


Stir fruit into mix until just moistened. Batter will be thick and lumpy. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full and bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes, until done. Makes about 15 muffins.

This might add a little kick to those New Years' diets!
