Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

>> Saturday, November 12, 2011

I have been looking for a good pumpkin muffin for years!  I am never quite satisfied with the taste, or the texture--wanting them to taste a lot like pumpkin pie, and not be dry.  I have a pumpkin bread that I love, but it is too involved to be tweaked into a breakfast muffin.  I hadn't given up, but I was becoming cynical. Today I am happy to post a pumpkin muffin that suits my tastes! It was quick to make, starting with a cake mix.  The result was a tender, moist texture and that pie taste I have been looking for.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
1 spice cake mix
1/4 c. oil
1/4 c. water
4 eggs
1 c. canned pumpkin
1/2 c. sour cream or plain yogurt
pinch of salt
1 c. chocolate chips

Mix by hand until all ingredients are moistened.  Divide dough between 24 greased muffin cups.  Bake at 350 for 18-20 min.
