Fall Means Pumpkin!

I love pumpkin in just about any variety. Combine pumpkin in a simple recipe and it's a must share!

Here is the recipe in 2 variations:

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

1 Box Carrot or Spice Cake Mix -Dry
1 Small Can Pumpkin
1 Cup Chocolate Chips

Mix well, spoon into Pam sprayed muffin tin or use paper liners. Bake at 350' for about 15 minutes. Use a toothpick to test doneness.

For a healthier version, omit chocolate chips. . . yeah right! LOL!!! You can also add nuts or raisins or a combination of all 3.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Sheet Cake

2 Boxes Carrot or Spice Cake Mix - Dry
1 Large Can Pumpkin
2+ C Chocolate Chips

Mix well, spread in sheet cake pan sprayed with pam. Bake at 350' for about 15 minutes, use a toothpick to test doneness.

When baked, mix 1 brick cream cheese, 1 bag powdered sugar, a splash of vanilla and enough milk to mix with an electric mixer to creamy. Spread on warm cake. Enjoy warm or cold! You can half the recipe and make a 9X13 as well.

I recently took the cake to a homeschool potluck and the sheet was devoured. I guess that means it's good! And to think they were so impressed that I brought something homemade! SHHHH! I won't tell if you don't!

I just happened to stumble upon your site, enjoyed it so much--checked out your other sites--WOW!!! I'm in awe of all the crafty stuff you have going on all over the place.

I have been debating trying digital scrapbooking, I'll have to come back and get some ideas to start!

Everything looks so awesome and your family seems so sweet!

These look YUMMY!!! And SO easy right?! Last week or so I posted a recipe for CC Pumpkin Cookies on my 'family blog'. They are one of my all time fave's. Mom used to make them when we were kids so not only are they scrumptious but they have a sentimental meaning too I guess. These muffin and cake recipes seem to be about the SAME thing just EASIER. SO tryin' 'em!!!
Thanks for sharing!!
