What is a Churro Flavor?

Churro is something that tastes like fried dough. I admit this flavor is a wonderful way to bring one back to their childhood days.

You’ll be taken back to the days when you’d venture to a fair during the summer and fall seasons to feast your mouth on a delicious bite of fried dough.

The cinnamon flavor in churros takes this nostalgic flavor to another level.

For my churro cupcakes, you’ll need some frozen or fresh churros. These will add so many flavors to the already delicious cinnamon flavor of my churro cupcakes.

These homemade cinnamon cupcakes topped with seasoned churros are a delicious dessert idea for a special meal or surprise treat for a birthday.
