This recipe is such a great alternative if you don't feel like deep frying and still want a satisfying cinnamon-sugar treat. The outsides have a great crunch from the cinnamon and sugar coating, making a light crumb.
- all-purpose flour
- 0.5 cup (1/2 stick) butter
- 1 milk
- 0.5 tsp egg
- 0.33 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 0.5 cup unsalted butter
- 0.25 tsp granulated sugar
- 0.5 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp salt
- 1.5 cup all purpose flour
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
- In the bowl of an electric mixture, beat together the sugar and butter on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
- Add the egg and vanilla and beat until well combined.
- With the mixer on low speed, slowly alternate adding the flour mixture and milk, starting and ending with the flour. Mix until just incorporated. Mixture will look very creamy.
- Use a small cookie scoop to fill each muffin tin and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until just golden brown.
- 0.25 cup butter (1/2 stick)
- 0.5 cup cinnamon
- While the churro bites are baking, melt butter in a bowl and combine cinnamon and sugar in a shallow dish.
- When churro bites are done, immediately remove from the pan and dip each bite in the butter and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
- Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container for 2-3 days.
