Here is the latest cupcake that I have made! It is a Churro Cupcake. I made them for a Cinco de Mayo party.
A churro is a piece of fried dough that is coated in cinnamon and sugar. Many Mexican restaurants serve this popular dessert. When I was asked to make a dessert for this party, I wanted to bring something familiar yet different. Since normal churros are best when made to order I thought about converting it into a cupcake.
After doing some recipe research and combining some recipes. I ended up with these babies! They consist of a Cinnamon Cupcake base. Next, there is a Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting. Lastly, they are topped with fried cinnamon-sugar tortillas.
Boy-oh-boy these were yummy! The cupcake had a nice cinnamon flavor that, when combined with the frosting, was very wonderful. Not too cinnamon-y or too sweet. These were very pleasant and next time I would like to try them filled with some Dulce-de-Leche….yummy!
