Chocolate Cake Mix...Spice cake would work well, too. A can of plain pumpkin. Join these two together. Divide into muffin tins, or bake in a cake pan. I used my new silicone muffin pan that turns out perfect muffins every time.
You can't taste the pumpkin, they are moist and delicious and MUCH lower in fat and calories than the regular way to do a cake mix. I used a Pillsbury Reduced Sugar cake mix. Chocolate of course.
Three points if you are doing weight watchers.
Egg free if you care about lenten cooking.
Extra nutrients from the pumpkin if you care about sneaking veggies into picky kids by hook or by crook.
Now that I've successfully done it with a mix, my goal is to do it at home from scratch. How chocolaty can I make it and sneak extra nutrition in?..flax meal, pumpkin, some bean paste perhaps?...BWAHAHAHAHA!
