Meatloaf cupcakes & Pumpkin brownies

Today was a good day for food, bad day for my 16 month old daughter who, came down with the flu at 2am and threw up in bed and all over herself every 2 hours. She’s so tough though, she didn’t cry once. My boyfriend offered to cook his new favorite meatloaf cupcakes. All it is, is meatloaf stuffed in a muffin tin and then topped with mashed potatoes. So good. For dessert, I baked Two Ingredient Pumpkin Brownies. So good also! A big hit. I got the recipe from http://www.familyfreshmeals.com/2013/10/two-ingredient-easy-pumpkin-brownies.html.

Ingredients:
1 (19.5 ounce) box brownie mix
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 pan with nonstick cooking spray or line with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, mix together brownie mix and pumpkin until combined and smooth.

3. Pour batter into your pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Mine turned out really thin. I think it was my brownie mix that included a herseys syrup.

Funfetti Cake Batter Blondies

As you will learn, I love ANYTHING cake batter! I’m so obsessed.. So of course I probably have almost all the cake batter recipes on Pinterest. This is my favorite one I have come across and I seriously make it all the time! It’s fast, easy and simple.

Funfetti Cake Batter Blondies

INGREDIENTS
1 box yellow cake mix
¼ cup canola oil
1 egg, beaten
½ cup milk
¼ cup rainbow sprinkles
½ cup white chocolate chips
INSTRUCTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cake mix, sprinkles, white chocolate chips, oil, egg, and milk in a bowl until the batter is just combined.
Place the batter in a greased 8×8 inch pan. The batter will be thick almost like cookie dough. Bake for 20 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden.
Let them cool for about 20 minutes so the gooey center can set.

*when I make this, I cook it longer because it doesn’t brown on the edges for quite a while. But make SURE you let it set before serving.
