Brownie Muffin Makeover

I had just happened to come across this recipe* over the weekend that is supposed to be a Weight Watcher's Favorite.
* from: Website - Tips and Tricks - for Hungry Chicks

Yum Yum Brownie Muffins

1 box devil's food cake mix
1 can solid packed pumpkin (15 oz.)
THAT'S IT! Nothing else is needed!

Mix the two ingredients together. Don't add anything else that may be mentioned on the box, such as eggs, oil, or water. The mixture will be very thick and you will be tempted to add in other things to make the batter smoother. DO NOT DO THIS AS IT WILL RUIN EVERYTHING! Place batter into muffin tins (or mini muffin tins) lined with paper, or sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes**. Makes 12 regular or 36 mini muffins.

I made these last night and they weren't half bad. I was amazed how they rose. I just used the non-stick spray which worked fine and I got a few more than 12.
**Note: Mine were done in about 12 minutes or so. My cupcake pan is more shallow that most but they did rise high and were perfectly done in well under the 20 minutes given. So keep and eye on them.

This email from HP reader Kathy I. says, "I make these with a box of spice cake mix and everyone loves one can believe how you make these, it sounds too strange! I will try the chocolate ones- thanks!"

So . . . I guess it would work with any number of flavors of cake mixes!
