hi! here are the Churro cupcakes I made for our friends who just welcomed a baby boy to their family. Mom is a big churro fan, so I found a cupcakes recipe and make them up. they made the house smell amazing (as the lurker, Charlie) can attest to. They were super easy too. here is the recipe
for the cupcakes – 1 yellow cake mix, 1 cup of milk, 1 stick of butter (melted), 3 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 tsp ground cinnamon. mix for three minutes at medium speed. pour into lined cupcake pan. put in oven that has been preheated to 400 degrees. cook for 5 minutes. without opening the oven door, lower temperature to 350 and cook for another 3 or 4 minutes for mini cupcakes, 5 min for regular size and 8 min for jumbo. (use a toothpick to test if they are done. it should come out with just a few crumbs). repeat process with until you use all the batter up. let cool completely.
frosting – 3/4 stick butter (softened), 1 tbs vanilla, 2 tsp cinnamon, 2-3 tbs heavy cream or milk, 3 cups powdered sugar. cream butter, vanilla and cinnamon. add powdered sugar and mix. use milk to thin out and beat to consistency. frost cupcakes
