Pound Cake Churro Cubes are simple, bite-sized dessert treats that are fun to make and delicious to eat!
I make a lot of pound cake recipes and sometimes we don’t get one eaten before it gets a little dry. Besides a dessert sandwich, I was trying to think of a good way to breathe new life into day-old pound cake.
If you love cinnamon and you love pound cake, there’s a, um, dare I say 100% chance you’ll like these Pound Cake Churro Cubes. Pound cake chunks are lightly toasted in butter then rolled in a cinnamon and sugar mixture. Coating them in deliciousness much like traditional churros.
Churros are a long strip of dough that’s deep-fried then rolled in cinnamon and sugar. They are much like a doughnut but straight instead of round.
Cinnamon is one of my favorite spices to use. Cinnamon is a warm, earthy spice that pairs nicely with apples and pumpkins. It’s the quintessential spice to use during the fall.
And, cinnamon rolls are my all-time favorite pastry. I like them so much I’ve shared several different recipes for cinnamon rolls with you, including Snickers Bars Cinnamon Rolls, Birthday Cake Cinnamon Rolls, Quick Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls, and even a Carrot Cake Cinnamon Roll. These Pound Cake Churro Cubes tastes a lot like a cinnamon rolls
When you just need a bite of something sweet or your entertaining where savory food is the main attraction, Pound Cake Churro Cubes are the perfect treat!
Pound Cake Churro Cubes
- You can use angel food cake, or any cake, actually. I prefer the dense pound cake
- As well, during the fall, you may want to substitute pumpkin spice for the cinnamon. Apple pie spice would also be tasty.
- Additionally, A Cream Cheese Glaze or Caramel Sauce would be awesome drizzled on top. A raspberry sauce or simple Nutella would also be good.
- I enjoy the kids helping in the kitchen and this is an easy recipe for them.
