Frugal Chocolate Muffins

My sister told me about a recipe she found for Chocolate Muffins using only 2 ingredients…Chocolate Cake Mix and Canned Pumpkin!!!  No oil or eggs are needed and I will tell you that after these little muffins come out of the oven, they are pure chocolate-y goodness and you won’t taste the pumpkin…or at least I didn’t!  I like the thickness and texture of these muffins because they come out a little dense, sorta like a cake-y brownie!  It’s a great low fat recipe and a thrifty one too!

Chocolate Muffins


  • Devils Food Chocolate Cake Mix (other flavors can be used too)
  • 15 oz. Canned Pumpkin


  1. Mix Cake Mix and Canned Pumpkin together (very thick batter, so it takes alot of mixing).
  2. Use a spoon or even an ice cream scoop to pour mixture into 12 Cupcake Paper Cups.
  3. Bake at temperature the Cake Mix calls for for around 19-22 minutes.
  4. Use a toothpick to see if muffins are done…if not, put back in the oven for another minute or 2!

These are DELICIOUS!!!  You can also make a variation that uses chocolate chips. Yum!
