LADYREBEL1 said:  I make these all the time but add 1/2 cup water because the mixture is so thick. I use my mini muffin tins and get about 38 muffins out of the mix. Then I place 5 muffins in pint size baggies and freeze. It's like having my own 100 cal snack packs but without paying the high price for store bought. - 7/23/09

KAYE2681 said:  I tried this method with Spice cake and Carrot cake, and they were both really good, but the Carrot cake was incredible! So delicious. I cheated a little and added just a dime size drop of cream cheese frosting to it, and it was great. I recommend this muffin recipe, its wonderful! - 4/7/09

SASWOPE said:  Tried and tried this several different ways. The best way was this: CARROT cake mix, a can of pumpkin, 1/4 cup of applesauce and 1/4 cup of water. After several trials, that was the easiest and tastiest method. Our favorite muffins are Panera or Atlanta Bread's pumpkin muffins. Try the change! - 1/17/11

GEMINI345 said:  I love this recipe...been baking these for years. It's actually an old Weight Watcher's recipe and a very good one. You don't have to add water or anything to the recipe mix...the cupcakes will be more moist if you don't. You can also substitute other cake mixes....I sometimes use devil's food. - 10/29/08

BETTYSUEVIV said:  AWESOME. I was actually looking for a pumpkin/flax seed muffin recipe and this recipe was elsewhere but with the flax seed meal added. So I made these muffins with 1 box spice cake mix, 1 egg, 1 can of pumpkin, 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 cup of flax seed meal. They are sooo good and easy. - 1/20/08

SIMPLYLIVING said:  I made a loaf of bread from this. It turned out really well. I added cinnamon and ginger for more flavor. Everyone who tried it said it was just as good as the real thing. Next time I will add walnuts or pecans. Very moist!! - 12/4/07

DENISE0310 said:  AMAZING! I made them exactly as the recipe said, using Duncan Hines Spice Cake. Great muffin texture, not dense, not too light, not doughy. When I asked my husband what he thought ... "I'll let you know after about 6 more!" It made 18, nice size muffins, and now I look forward to experimenting! - 4/4/09

RENEEP07 said:  These were great! I beat together some softened fat free cream cheese and 1/3 c splenda for a sweet frosting on top! Loved it... was a little skeptical with only 2 ingredients, but this recipe proved to be a winner! - 10/3/08

1AVERY said:  I used a carrot cake mix couldn't find a spice one. I added 1/2 cup water and cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves and made it in a bundt pan cooked for about 35-40 minutes and it was very good. I would definitely make it again and it was so EASY. - 4/13/08
