These Pumpkin Spice Muffins with Cinnamon Glaze are made from a cake mix but taste like they come from a bakery. And, they take only a few minutes to make!
Hey friends! It's the first day of fall, and since it's my favorite time of the year, I felt compelled to mark the occasion by whipping up a batch of Pumpkin Spice Muffins with Cinnamon Glaze. Don't they look elegant? And the best part is these tasty treats come from a box of cake mix and take only a few minutes to make.
But since this was so easy, I just had to add a little extra something, so I topped them off with a very light cinnamon-powdered sugar glaze. And friends, these muffins are absolutely wonderful. They really do taste just like fall! I had a big plans for this week, including finally starting my fall decorating. It's been so hectic around here lately that I haven't had a chance to get started on that. I also went to my first blog conference over the weekend, which was amazing, and when I came home, I managed to throw my back out -- yikes!
So, I really haven't done much cooking lately, but I felt better enough today, and I thought I could manage a batch of easy 2 ingredient pumpkin muffins.
I've been making these easy cake mix muffins forever, but this time I did something a little different, and I used a spice cake mix instead of a regular yellow mix. And wow, does this ever make a difference!
I also added a heaping cup of white chocolate chips instead of the usual semi sweet.
And then, there's that fabulous glaze I mentioned. The white chocolate chips add plenty of sweetness to the muffins, so I didn't want to go overboard. But, the cinnamon adds the spice right back in, so it's a perfect balance in the end.
I loved the glaze so much that I even added a little extra after I cut the muffin open. Mmmm -- perfect!
And then, I was a very, very good mom, and I put the rest of the muffins away so that the kiddos could taste them when they came home from school. But oh, was I ever tempted to have another one!
