Good Morning, Muffin

Here's a happy little recipe for you.  It is ridiculously easy, low-fat, low-calorie, and one of my favorite things to serve house guests.  And my family.  And myself.

Orange Morning Muffins

Ingredients:
1 Orange cake mix (Duncan Hines Orange Supreme is what I use)
1 14.5 oz. can of pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix, just plain pumpkin)
1 egg
1 c. water

Preheat oven according to directions on cake mix.  Mix all ingredients together and divide into prepared muffin tins.  Bake 18-23 minutes.  Remove to a cooling rack for a few minutes and then drizzle icing on the still-warm muffins.

Icing

Ingredients:
3/4 c. Powdered sugar
2 T. Orange juice or milk
1/8 t. Vanilla

Mix together and add more sugar or liquid depending on the consistency you want.

If you're hesitant to use pumpkin, just trust me on this one.  I promise that you can't taste it at all.  You can beat me up if I'm wrong.

You can also modify the recipe and make it with any of the following cake mixes: chocolate, spice, carrot, lemon, banana, and even strawberry.  But orange is definitely my favorite.

Try it out and let me know what you think!

My mouth is watering!!! I decided to make these, so I went to the store and NO ONE has the orange cake mix. Where do you get it? I am dying. I was so excited to try these. UGH! I found a place online where I can order a whole case. Let me know.

Pumpkin flavored things are one good thing about letting summer go.

Omgirl said...

I will try it! Because all of my favorite breakfast specialties are extremely HIGH fat. And that equals a big arse. Not my fave.
