Autumn Breakfast-- can be quick and easy

This morning I had promised to do breakfast duty in exchange for my husband doing dinner last night. I made one of my go-to crowd pleasers, sure to make everyone happy on the way to church. I have made them totally from scratch in the past, but this morning was not THAT morning.

Chocolate Pumpkin Pancakes
1 box of devil's food or other chocolate cake mix
1 can of pumpkin

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees, spray muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. Mix the two ingredients together until there are no dry bits of cake mix left. It will be quite thick and goopy. Portion into muffin tins, makes 6-12 muffins. Cook for about 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

I was going to put pictures up, but they dissapeared too quickly.

Why are these the bomb? Pumpkin is excellent for you (look it up, really) and they are easy and you get to be a superhero mom for serving chocolate for breakfast. The family won't even know they contain pumpkin unless you tell them....
