Churro Mini Muffins - #MuffinMonday

Churro Mini Muffins

One of things I miss about living in the U.S. is visiting the mall food court.  The Miami International Mall had a Churro Mania. Deep fried goodness topped with cinnamon sugar, chocolate, condensed milk, or even Nutella. All delicious.  

My mini muffins are mimicking some churros as best as they can - alas, they aren't fried. I went with some cinnamon sugar and and some condensed milk. 

As always, scroll down to find the other muffins we have for you this Monday. 

Churro Mini Muffins
Yield: 20 mini muffins



1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup oil
1teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar 
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Condensed milk


Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a mini muffin pan or grease it well.

Whisk flour, baking powder and salt. 
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg, sugar, milk, oil and vanilla. 

Pour into the flour mixture. Gently combine until there are no streaks of flour. The batter is thick and you may have some lumps. Don't overmix.

Scoop into the prepared muffin wells and bake 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a muffin comes out clean.

Cool completely. 

For cinnamon sugar coated muffins, dip the muffins into melted butter. Then toss in a mix of the cinnamon and sugar. 
For condensed milk ones, simply drizzle as much condensed milk as you like. The condensed milk does soak into the muffin.

  1. What a great way to get your churro fix in a healthier version, Kelly! If it makes you feel any better, hardly anyone has been going to malls for the last year here either.

  2. Maybe not fried but these don't come with the same guilt level as fried. So we can enjoy more often, right?

  3. These sound delicious and a great way to satisfy your churro craving!
