Grandma Parks' Mystery Muffins

Grandma Parks made these mystery muffins while visiting last week. YUMMY.

1 package devil's food cake
15 oz. can pumpkin
chopped pecans
chocolate chips (I used mini chips)
1 Tablespoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper baking cups. (I used Pam) Mix cake mix with pumpkin, add vanilla. (I used a mixer) Drop into cupcake tin (I used an ice cream scooper) Sprinkle top with chopped nuts and chocolate chips (I skipped the nuts and spooned 1/2 bag of mini chips into the batter...hey we like chocolate here!) Bake for 20 minutes or until a wooden pick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes then remove from cupcake tin to wire rack.

The ingredients...

...the batter will be thick...

...into the cupcake tin (I had 16)...

...the end result...YUMMY! Tastes like a brownie!

You can't taste the pumpkin in it and pumpkin is loaded with fiber. I googled cake mix muffins and found a few variations on this. One was with spice cake mix and cinnamon chips. Grandma Parks clipped this recipe from a newspaper but didn't remember which paper or when....

Interesting - no egg or liquid?
