That’s right, I said it. UGLY CUPCAKES.
I found this recipe on Pinterest that called for yellow cake mix and a can of pumpkin. I thought, “well this could be good (or terrible), but I don’t have yellow cake mix, so I’ll use chocolate. And I really want almonds, so I’ll add that too.
That’s it. Mix these three ingredients together with a mixture until they are completely mixed and add to a buttered cupcake tin. Bake in a 350 F oven for 20 minutes.
You want to know the crazy part? These muffins DON’T RISE. So the level you put them in, and the goopyness that they are before they go in the oven, that’s what they’re going to look like when they come out. So, they’re a bit ugly. But delicious, and really, really kid friendly.
I think next time I would add some cinnamon, or maybe some ginger AND some dried fruit to kick it up a notch.
These are apparently weight watchers friendly, so…that’s good…right?
