Churro Cupcakes

Churro Cupcakes


These cinnamon-sugar filled cupcakes use melted butter which makes them taste more like the fried treat they are topped with.
  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • 1½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • ¾ c. (1½ stick) melted butter, cooled
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon-sugar, for sprinkling
  • 1 (8-oz.) block cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tbsp. butter, softened
  • 3 c. powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • Cinnamon-sugar, for topping
  • Churros, for garnish
  1. Preheat oven to 350° and line two muffin tins with cupcake liners. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together melted butter, milk, egg, and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Divide batter evenly among liners, filling ¾ full, then sprinkle tops with cinnamon-sugar.
  3. Bake until a toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean, 20 minutes. Let cool completely.
  4. Meanwhile make frosting: In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add powdered sugar and cinnamon and beat until no lumps remain. Add heavy cream, vanilla, and a pinch of salt and beat until combined. If frosting is too thick, add more heavy cream a tablespoon at a time until desired consistency.
  5. Transfer frosting to piping bag fitted with a large open star tip. Pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes, then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and top with a mini churro.
