1 package devil's food cake
15 oz. can pumpkin
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.
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....
