Cinco de Mayo is a little over a month away, but I couldn’t wait to share these cupcakes with you all! I don’t personally celebrate Cinco de Mayo, but Churros are hands down my favourite Mexican treat, so these cupcakes were being made no matter what.

If you’ve never had a churro before, they’re basically fried sticks of dough rolled in cinnamon sugar. You can enjoy them plain, or you can enjoy them filled with dulce de leche, chocolate sauce or strawberry jam! My two favourite churro fillings are definitely chocolate sauce and dulce de leche. Every time I buy churros, I ask for BOTH fillings (since they sell a minimum of 3).

For these cupcakes, however, I chose to go with the dulce de leche filling. But the best part about this recipe is that you can customize it to your liking! So if your favourite churro filling is chocolate sauce or strawberry jam, you can certainly fill these cupcakes with those instead! I’ll definitely be remaking these cupcakes with those flavours soon.

These are literally churros in cupcake form! We start with a moist and fluffy cinnamon spiced cupcake and dip the tops in cinnamon sugar. Then we fill the centres with dulce de leche so it’s like we’re biting into a dulce de leche filled churro! Next they’re topped with a delicious swirl of cinnamon buttercream, another dust of cinnamon sugar, a drizzle of dulce de leche and finally a dulce de leche filled churro on top. Are you tempted yet?
