Ingredients

Muffins:

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Churro Cinnamon Sugar Topping:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 24 mini-muffin pan with cooking spray.
  • Mix 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup butter in a large bowl. Stir in the milk and vanilla, then mix in the flour, baking powder, and salt until just combined. Fill the prepared mini muffin cups about half full.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the top of the muffins are lightly golden, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • While muffins are baking, place 1/4 cup of melted butter in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, combine 1/2 cup of sugar and cinnamon.
  • Turn the muffin tin pan over to release the muffins on a plate or cooling rack.
  • Dip each muffin in the melted butter, and roll in the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Let the Churro Muffins cool and serve.
