I may be the last person to find out that you can use a boxed cake mix and a can of pumpkin puree to make absolutely delicious muffins, but just in case you had not heard it yet you really can!
I saw something posted on Pinterest about this, Googled it and found lots of positive commentaries on this technique for making muffins and figured what the heck, I will give it a try.
While this certainly does not constitute baking it sure does produce a moist, tender flavorful muffin. And, yes, the Duncan Hines Super Moist Spice Cake Mix is vegan out of the box!
Mini Pumpkin Spice Muffins
1 box Duncan Hines Super Moist Spice Cake Mix
1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Do not follow the spice cake mix directions. Instead put the mix and the pumpkin puree into a bowl and stir until smooth.
Line a mini muffin tin with cupcake liners and place a scoop of batter in each (I find a medium size cookie scoop is the perfect amount of batter).
Bake for about fifteen minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the muffin comes out clean.
Note: this recipe yielded 46 mini muffins.
