Ingredients

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 3/4 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 3/4 c granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs, plus 2 yolks
  • 1/2 c sour cream
  • 3/4 c whole milk

Cinnamon Sugar Topping

  • 1/4 c granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Butter your mini bundt cake pan, making sure that it reaches into all of the crevices for easy removal once the cakes are baked.
  • Make the Churro Cake Batter: Whisk the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Beat the butter, granulated sugar and vanilla in a large bowl using a mixer set at medium speed until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then add the egg yolks.
  • Beat in the sour cream until combined.
  • Reduce the mixer’s speed to low, then add the flour mixture in separate, smaller batches until it is combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared mini bundt pan. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean once inserted into the center of the cakes; approximately 10-15 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack for 10 minutes, then flip the pan over to loosen and remove the mini bundt cakes.
    Tip: This same recipe works wonders in a full sized bundt pan, simply adjust the cooking time to 55 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of cooling time.
  • Make the Cinnamon Sugar Topping: Combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl. Brush each mini bundt cake with melted butter, then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over each one, pressing gently to make sure that the mixture adheres.
  • Serve immediately.

    Tip: You can also prepare the cakes ahead of time, storing until
    you are ready to serve. At that time, brush the tops with melted butter and add
    the cinnamon sugar topping.
