Churros surprise muffins

Updated: Jan 10

It has been a while since I have posted a muffin recipe so here it is: Churros Surprise Muffins! My friend gave me Cinnamon Toast Crunch CHURROS for my birthday and I loved it, I made a few recipes with it and they always turned out amazing!! 🤩

These are cinnamon muffins stuffed and garnished with Nutella and Churros cereal, what do you guys think?

I think they were delicious so you should definitely bake them now!

Check out the recipe below ( I adapted it from the amazing Sally's Baking Addiction ).


  • 75g butter (room temperature)

  • 100g granulated sugar

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract*

  • 120ml milk

  • 190g all purpose flour

  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 9 teaspoons Nutella

--- TOPPINGS ---


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (218°C) and prepare your muffin tin: grease 9 cups with butter and cover them with powdered Cinnamon Toast Crunch CHURROS.

  2. In a large bowl of an electric or stand mixer, cream butter and sugar together on medium speed; then mix in the egg, vanilla extract, and milk.

  3. Stir in the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt) and mix until just combined ( do not over-mix the batter).

  4. Pour 1 tablespoon of batter in each muffin cup, layer 1 teaspoon of Nutella and finally spoon the remaining batter on top of that.*

  5. Bake at 425°F (218°C) for 5 minutes then reduce temperature to 350°F (177°C) and bake for an additional 13-17 minutes.

  6. Allow muffins to cool for about 5 minutes before removing from the pan.

  7. Garnish the surface with a dollop of Nutella and Cinnamon Toast Crunch CHURROS.

  8. Enjoy :)


  • If you can't find vanilla extract you can also use powdered vanilla or omits it at all.

  • As suggested by Sally you can also bake 8 bigger muffins with this batter (in this case you can fill the cups completely).

  • The muffins are best eaten the day of because then the cereal tends to lose their freshness.


If you make it let me know! :)
