Why I'm the only one in this house who likes spice cake is beyond me, but since that is the case, I had to get creative because it's this time of the year I love spice cake and different recipes using spice cake mix. By turning this mix into three different recipes, this spice muffin trio has something for everyone; chocolate, cranberries, pumpkin, and pecans.... you pick and enjoy!!!
Low-Point Spice Muffin Trio
- 1 Spice cake mix
- 1 cup water
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1/4 cup pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
- 2 Tbs dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, water, eggs, and applesauce. After combined, equally divide batter into 3 separate bowls. In the first bowl, add pumpkin, cranberries, and combine. In the 2nd bowl, add chocolate chips and combine. In the 3rd bowl, add pecans and combine. Spray a muffin tin with Pam baking spray. Add filling from each bowl to the muffin tin. Each bowl will make 6 muffins. Bake muffins for 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle. Drizzle with a little icing if desired. Enjoy! If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
