Holiday Baking!

Most everyone has tried recipes for leftover turkey. This year I was inspired by Chrissie from Flipflops & Applesauce to use my leftover pumpkins from Thanksgiving! Her blog: is packed full of fun ideas, crafts & recipes to try with your little ones. This recipe below is from her blog and is so easy. I of course used my own pumpkin, but the canned pumpkin is just as yummy!


1 box spice cake mix

1 15oz can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)

4 egg whites or 1/2 cup egg substitute

2 Tablespoons water

Allspice-add to taste.

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until creamy. Fill muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-23 minutes.

1. Cut the pumpkin in half and remove seeds
2. Cut in chunks and steam. Cool and remove skin.

3. Puree the pumpkin.
4. Make these delicious, moist cupcakes. I made miniture ones for Jocelynne.
5. Serve while still warm. Jocelynne especially liked the bite size muffins. :)
