Fluffy and Soft Pumpkin Muffins That You Need To Try This Fall

They're easy, cheap and only 2-4 ingredients!

Fluffy and Soft Pumpkin Muffins That You Need To Try This Fall

I got this recipe from my cousin Jessie several Thanksgivings ago! They're easy to make and delicious! They are so light, fluffy, and actually healthy! They are egg and dairy free, so perfect for people watching their calories. These are great for a grab-and-go breakfast paired with a banana or apples and cinnamon. I tried them with the new Spiced Pumpkin Pecan Blue Bell Ice Cream flavor.


One box of Duncan Hines Spice Cake Mix

One can of pumpkin puree


3 Tbs Vanilla extract

Mccormick Pumpkin Pie Spice

Chocolate chips

Yields: ~2 dozen with ~ 1-2 Tbs dough per muffin lining

The dough has no raw eggs and tastes soooo good, so lick the spoon! The muffins expand more than they seem like they would while baking, so don't put too much in one muffin liner unless you want very large muffins!


Combine the spice cake mix and canned pumpkin thoroughly. Add vanilla extract, chocolate chips, and pumpkin pie spice as wanted. Distribute approx. 1-2 tbs. into each muffin tin and sprinkle pumpkin pie spice on top. Bake 15-20 min at 350 degrees F, or until doughy!


The spice cake can be substituted with another type of cake (carrot, vanilla, etc.), but the spice cake has the best flavor! I always add lots of pumpkin pie spice in the dough, and I sprinkle the tops of the muffins before baking. You can replace the pumpkin pie spice with cinnamon, but the pie spice has other things like nutmeg in it.

Chocolate chips are optional, but I like the Ghiradelli 60% baking chips! They are thick and perfectly bittersweet! These muffins aren't too sweet so adding chocolate chips can add to the sweetness if that's what you like!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
