If you love cinnamon and you love cake, this is one dessert you won’t want to pass on! Pound cake is cubed and lightly fried, and then tossed in a delicious coating of cinnamon sugar.

Cinnamon churro cake bites

Are you a fan of cinnamon like me? This is one tasty little treat that will surely impress anyone who has a bite. If you have ever tried a churro, which is a long fried pastry almost like a doughnut and covered in cinnamon sugar, this is very similar in flavor. Instead of using dough I used a pound cake which I cubed and fried lightly. These are the perfect size treats when you just want a little something sweet.

Cinnamon churro cake bites recipe

Yields 8 servings

Ingredients:

  • Canola oil for frying
  • 1 frozen pound cake, thawed
  • 3/4 cup organic sugar

  3. In a large zip top plastic bag or in a large mixing bowl, add the sugar and the cinnamon and mix well.
  4. Begin frying the cake cubes in small batches until golden brown. Drain on a plate lined with paper towels and add to the bag of cinnamon sugar.
