Cake Mix Muffins

These are a great alternative to the "Costco Muffins" Be sure to try the variations!
Costco Muffins - Copycat

1 (18 ounce) box cake mix, package (Duncan Hines is the best)
• 2 tablespoons flour
• 3 eggs
• 2/3 cup milk
• 1/3 cup vegetable oil
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
1.Mix all ingredients together.
2.Spoon into prepared muffin cups. (I made 18 muffins)
3.Bake at 375 for approximately 15-17 minutes or until tops are lightly browned.
For ALMOND POPPYSEED MUFFINS: use a white cake mix, add 2 teaspoons poppyseeds, and 1 tsp almond extract.
FOR CHOCOLATE MUFFINS: use a chocolate cake mix and stir in 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
Other Variations:
French vanilla cake mix and fresh raspberries.
Lemon cake mix and poppyseed.
Spice cake mix with cinnamon/sugar topping.

Be creative and use any flavor of cake mix with whatever goodies sound yummy!
TIP : When using chocolate chips or berries reserve 1 tbl. of the cake mix to toss them with before adding them to them batter, it will prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the muffin while baking.

My boyfriend loves, loves, loves chocolate chocolate chip zucchini bread. Well, I didn't have all the ingredients on hand, namely, sugar. I did however, have a dark chocolate cake mix. WHAMO! They are delicious. I used your ingredients and instructions but, added 1T dark chocolate cocoa powder, 1 cup chocolate chips, 1 cup chopped walnuts, 2 cups shredded zucchini, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. I also substituted soy mild for cows milk. They made 20 muffins.
