Hello friends!

Do you like churros?  How about cake?  If you said yes to both questions, I have a yummy cake recipe to share with you!

This is a great dessert to finish off a family taco night or as an afternoon snack with a tall glass of milk or some nice, hot coffee.

The recipe was originally for cupcakes, but it works wonderfully for a 9X9 cake…

    1. Please forgive me if my explanation isn’t the best. They are like a dough stick that is fried and coated in cinnamon and sugar. They’re typically served at fairs and such. Don’t be embarrassed, I had no clue what they were until I moved to California. 🙂
