Churro Cupcakes

on August 11, 2017

I made these Churro Cupcakes for a book club pool party a few weeks ago. Our book club takes a break during the summer, but we’re such good friends that we usually get together at least once during the off season. One of our members offered her beautiful home and pool for the party, and we had an amazingly beautiful day for it.

Another of our members had the brilliant idea that we all bring the ingredients for a taco bar, and I offered to bring dessert. I saw these cupcakes one day while I was perusing Instagram, on a blog called thebrookcook. They looked delicious and sounded perfect for a taco themed party! I love churros – but these cupcakes are better! There are 3 parts to this recipe, so pay attention: the cupcakes, the topping, and the frosting. You’re gonna love these cupcakes!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Churro Cupcakes

The Cupcakes:

Whisk together:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cups cake flour

1 Tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

1 1/2 Tablespoon ground cinnamon

Cream together:

1 cup butter, at room temperature

1 3/4 cups sugar

Add and beat after each addition:

4 eggs, at room temperature

2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Turn mixer to low and add, alternating:

dry ingredients

1 1/4 cup milk

Beat just until combined after each addition.

Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full.

Bake at 350 degrees for 17-20 minutes, or until cupcakes bounce back when touched.

Cool.

For Cinnamon-Sugar Topping:

Mix together:

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Melt:

4 Tablespoons butter

Brush melted butter on top of cooled cupcakes and dip into cinnamon-sugar mixture.

For Cinnamon-Cream Cheese Frosting:

Beat until fluffy:

1/2 cup butter, at room temperature

8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

Add:

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

Add:

3 cups confectioner’s sugar, 1 cup at a time

1-2 teaspoons milk, if needed for consistency

Use a piping bag and tip to make swirls of frosting on top, leaving a bit of the edges showing (to show off the fact that there is a delicious cinnamon-sugar layer underneath).

First up – make the cupcakes. The recipe makes exactly 24.

Next up – brush the melted butter onto the tops of the cooled cupcakes and then dip them into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

This cinnamon-sugar mixture would be enough of a topping for these cupcakes, but oh no, there’s more!

Here they are in all their glory! I had just enough frosting to do these 24 cupcakes. Perfect. This was a delicious and well written recipe! Thanks again, to thebrookcook! Soon, very soon, (maybe this weekend?) you should have a taco party and make these cupcakes for dessert. You and your guests will love these cinnamon filled Churro Cupcakes!
