Two-Ingredient Muffins Recipe

Friday, August 24th, 2007

1 (18.5-oz) box chocolate cake mix
1 (15 oz) can pumpkin puree

Mix together and fill greased muffin tins two-thirds full. Bake at 350 degrees until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean about 20 to 25 minutes.

Try this with Pillsbury’s reduced sugar Devil’s Food cake mix.

Be sure to buy pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie mix.

Amish Raisin Bran Muffins Recipe

Tuesday, July 10th, 2007

2 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1 c soy flour
1 1/2 c white flour
6 tsp baking soda
1 c sugar
3 tsp salt
4 c buttermilk
4 eggs beaten
1 c canola oil
10 oz box raisin bran flakes

The original directions simply say “mix all together.” I mixed together all dry ingredients, including bran flakes. I then added all wet ingredients and mixed quickly. Do not overmix. Dough will keep in refrigerator for 6 weeks. I baked all at one time and put in the freezer. Bake at 400 degrees for about 12 to 15 mins or until done.

The original recipe called for 5 c white flour, any type of oil and 3 c sugar. It also said you could add extra raisins, but I did not. I was very pleased with the results! Please keep in mind that you should use your judgment as to what flours to use and in what proportion to mix them. I baked my muffins at 375 degrees.

As a sidenote, King Arthur Flour now has a white whole wheat flour that has all of the fiber and nutrition as traditional whole wheat flour. If you prefer not to mix your own flours, this is a good alternative.
