Baking with my lil' pumpkins!

Sunshine was at a Halloween party tonight, and Punky needed snack to share with friends at preschool, so we had a baking party.  We used a very simple recipe and made two batches.  First, Punky & I made a batch, then I let Belle loose to make the second.  Yum!

1 box yellow cake mix
1 15 oz. can of pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cloves

Mix all together and evenly fill 12 prepared muffin cups.  Place in preheated 350 oven for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

Punky wanted to add sprinkles to her muffins, which I thought was appropriate because their color this month is orange.  The teachers hinted that a snack related to the theme would be pumpkins: check.  Orange: check.  Snack is ready!

PS...Have you ever baked pumpkin muffins with a princess?  Or a gymnast?  I'm so lucky!  (The girls were actually in costume because we were having a party at home while Sunshine was at her party away from home.)
