This week on Simply Sweet Allison I have the perfect sweet treat to bring to a Cinco De Mayo party this weekend or any other themed party! These cupcakes are so easy to make and they won't last long! You just mix all the ingredients into a bowl and get to stirring. And-, they actually taste like churros!


Cupcake batter-

-1 package white cake mix

-1 cup milk

-1/2 cup sour cream

-6 tbsp. butter, melted

-3 eggs

-2 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

-1 1/2 tsp. vanilla


-5 cups powdered sugar

-1 cup butter, softened

-2 tbsp. milk

-1 tsp. vanilla

-1 tsp. cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Mix all of the batter ingredients into a bowl and mix until incorporated.

3. Place batter into cupcake tins (makes about 16 cupcakes) and bake in the oven for 14- 19 minutes, or until golden brown.

4. Now make the frosting while the cupcakes are baking. Mix all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix until smooth. (NOTE: if the frosting is too thick, add a little more milk.)

5. Once the cupcakes are cooled, frost and top with cinnamon sugar and a churro for decoration!
