I Heart Pumpkin!

Mrs. Nurse Boy here.


So, I have to be honest. I love fall. Some love it because of the cooler weather. Some love it for the fall colors. Some love it for the wonderful fall smell that fills the air.


Me?


It is an excuse to make pumpkin everything! I love pumpkin anything. Bread, cookies, cake, pie, muffins, ice cream....


And, I can make it all! Plus, I love it all! Today I will share a simple (Do I really need to say that? I mean, are you new here? I don't like to slave in the kitchen. In order for me to make it, it has to be simple!) recipe for some deliciously moist ....


PUMPKIN MUFFINS!!!!!


1 box of Spice Cake Mix
15 oz. of canned pumpkin
4 egg whites
2 tablespoons of water
all spice to taste

Throw all of the ingredients in a bowl and beat well. Use an electric mixer for best results. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.

See... EASY!!

If you stop by for a visit at my humble abode around this time of year, you are almost certain to be greeted with these and some hot chocolate.

Happy Fall!!! Now, go eat some pumpkin!!

I'm on my way too! See what happens when you say things like that. You make it and they will come!! Except, I think it would be much cheaper for me just to make it. *sigh*

Yummy! Those sound so good! I love fall and the colors and smells and food. Thanks for the comment on my pumpkin post!!

Tiffany said...

I love the concept of Fall because we don't really have Fall here in Florida!

But I do love pumpkin rolls ;o) That's about the only pumpkin thing I love - but your muffins do look delicious. Maybe if I ate them at your house I'd like more pumpkin things......

Thanks and yum. Those are my absolute favorite kind of muffin.

I make a very similar one. Just take away the eggs (due to Buddy's allergy) and I don't add water, but I DO add chocolate chips and it's one of the recipes that all kids like!!

I posted my recipe on my blog awhile ago. Maybe someday I'll have to try yours...when Buddy isn't around!! ;-)

Oh, the pumpkin. It's coming out of our ears and I'm so happy about it!

Looks like a lot a people love pumpkin. I am all for the easy.

Did you try the pumpkin waffle cookies yet. Easy peasy as well.

When you make your cocoa to go with the muffin try adding so coffee mate HAZELNUT creamer. Oh so yummy.

I was just contemplating how to use my can of pumpkin!!!

Sir Nottaguy-Imadad said...

Was that an invitation for all your bloggy friends to meet at your house for pumpkin muffins?
That's what it sounded like to me.
Got milk to go with them?

Diana said...

Hopped over for a first visit.

Sounds great!

I have some fav. fall desserts posted in a linky if you get time to pop over. The recipes that friends posted are awesome.

Mummy McTavish said...

I think I will be trying these!

Please Mrs Nurse Boy can you explain something for me... this has been frustrating me for days as I read all the pumkiny recipes around blog land. All you northern hemisphere folk are getting excited because it's time for pumpkins... you are all posting what look like REALLY YUMMY recipes that I want to try... But they all use canned pumpkin! Can't you use that any time of year? Why don't the recipes use fresh pumpkin? I have never even seen canned pumpkin here, I'm sure it's available but probably more expensive than fresh. I'm just confused here.

Jewel said...

Sounds easy and delicious! Thanks, Mrs NB! I'm posting an easy cookie recipe today so ya might wanna come over! :-)

Mother Mayhem said...

LOVE me some pumpkin anything too! Slurp! :o)

Mrsbear said...

Pumpkin pie ice-cream, pumpkin spice coffee. I'm there with you. The muffins look and sound scrumptious. I love easy!

S said...

Those muffins sounds awesome and HEALTHY! My favorite! I made some pumpkin oatmeal pancakes this morning and my daughter turned her nose up at 'em. Booo. I'll just sneak the healthy stuff in other ways I guess. Sometimes ya just can't mess with pancakes.

Lisa @ Boondock Ramblings said...

I love pumpkin too and your recipes sound great...this one and the one above for the cookies! Yummmmmy!
