  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 48 mini muffins/24 regular 1x


  • 1 box cake mix
  • 1 (15 oz) can pure pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)


Heat oven to 350°.
Line muffin tin with paper liners.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix cake mix and pumpkin puree until combined.
Add chocolate chips, if desired.
Using a spoon or cookie scoop (I highly recommend using a scoop!), add batter to muffin liners, filling ¾ full.
Bake mini muffins for approximately 16-18 minutes and regular muffins for approximately 22-24 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cupcake comes out clean.


Makes about 48 mini muffins or 24 regular sized muffins.
Using a chocolate cake mix will result in very chocolatey muffins (my wife has no idea there was pumpkin in them) My Aunt who like my wife does not care for pumpkin also loved them.
