FAQs for Pumpkin Spice Cake Mix Muffins

Can I use a different type of cake mix for this 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Muffin Recipe?

Yes, you can experiment with different cake mixes.

However, the spice cake mix is ideal for this recipe because it includes the perfect blend of spices that pair wonderfully with pumpkin. If you can’t find a spice cake mix, a vanilla or yellow cake mix can also be used.

You might want to add some pumpkin pie spice or a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves to boost the flavors.

Can I add other ingredients to my Pumpkin Spice Cake Mix Muffins?

Absolutely! This recipe is very versatile. You can add ingredients like chocolate chips, nuts, or dried fruits for added flavor and texture.

I love to sprinkle these Sugar Crystals on top of my muffins before baking to create a sweet crunchy top.

How do I store these Spice Cake Muffins with Pumpkin?

Once cooled completely, store your muffins in an airtight container at room temperature. They should last for about 2-3 days.

For longer storage, you can refrigerate them for up to a week, or freeze them for up to 3 months.

Can I use fresh pumpkin instead of canned pumpkin for this recipe?

Yes, you can use fresh pumpkin. You’ll need to cook, puree, and drain it first.

It’s important to note that canned pumpkin puree is denser than fresh pumpkin, so the texture of the muffins might be slightly different.

This is my favorite canned organic pumpkin to keep on hand in the pantry so I can whip up delicious pumpkin treats quickly and easily.

Can I make this recipe into a loaf or cake instead of muffins?

Yes, you can bake this recipe in a loaf pan or cake pan. Just be sure to adjust the baking time accordingly. It will likely take longer to bake than the muffins.

My muffins didn’t rise as much as I expected. What did I do wrong?

The key to perfectly risen muffins is not to overmix the batter. Overmixing can lead to tougher, denser muffins that don’t rise as well. Just mix until the ingredients are combined for the best results.

  • 1 box of spice cake mix
  • 1 can (15 oz.) of pure pumpkin puree

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  5. Let the muffins cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Enjoy your Pumpkin Spice Cake Mix Muffins warm, with a pat of butter or a dollop of cream cheese frosting, if desired.
