Churros surprise muffins
Updated: Apr 13
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*
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 ---
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.
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.
Stir in the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt) and mix until just combined ( do not over-mix the batter).
Pour 1 tablespoon of batter in each muffin cup, layer 1 teaspoon of Nutella and finally spoon the remaining batter on top of that.*
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.
Allow muffins to cool for about 5 minutes before removing from the pan.
Garnish the surface with a dollop of Nutella and Cinnamon Toast Crunch CHURROS.
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! :)
