It’s that time of year again.
At least in Southerners terms.
If it doesn’t get out of the 40’s, like today, I do not get out of the house.
Well, if I can help it.
Luckily, today I had nothing pressing to do outside of the home so I am staying in and have spent most of the morning in the kitchen.
It’s nice and warm in there with the oven on.
This gave me an opportunity to try a couple things that have been on my “want to do” list.
One being the very simple Pumpkin Spice Muffins.
Pumpkin Spice Muffins
- 1 Box Spice Cake Mix
- 1 15 oz can of pumpkin
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- ½ cup chopped pecans (optional)
- Confectioners Sugar
- Confectioners Sugar Glaze
Preheat oven to 350º.
Mix together cake mix, pumpkin, vanilla and nuts
Scoop even amounts into a lined muffin tin.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Top with a sprinkle of confectioners sugar and prepared Sugar Glaze (recipe below)
1 1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
Stir milk into sugar. Add vanilla. Drizzle on cupcakes.
May be thickened with confectioners’ sugar or thinned with milk.
This would be a great last minute breakfast or snack to throw together because it’s quick, simple and you could easily have all the ingredients in your pantry.
