I tried this recipe early this morning. It's so easy, you just won't believe it. These muffins are so dense and old fashioned, that others will think there are more ingredients than they contain. I think they're nutritious as well.

Method:
Bake

Ingredients

15 oz
can of solid pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 pkg
carrot cake mix or spice cake mix
1/4 c
walnut pieces
1/4 c
raisins

Step-By-Step

1Mix the canned pumpkin with the dry cake mix (just the dry cake mix).
2Add the walnuts and stir gently. I soak the raisins in hot water for a few minutes, so they will plump up a little. Drain raisins and add to the mixture. Use an ice cream scoop to portion each muffin.
3Put batter in paper lined muffin tins (I used regular tins), and bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and take out each muffin to cool, or eat them while their warm. Either way they are delicious.
4You may use a mini muffin pan lined with papers. If so, please check the time by testing for doneness. It may be about 12 to 15 minutes. Insert a tooth pick in a muffin, to make sure it's done.
