Pumpkin Spice Pound Cake Churros
- This is a great recipe to use old pound cake that is not fresh and getting dry, if you ever have old, not fresh pound cake. I don’t usually. I make a fresh pound cake and use it.
- Use a sturdy, classic pound cake for this recipe. I suggest the Mile High Pound Cake, the Million Dollar Pound Cake, the Whipping Cream Pound Cake, or the Sour Cream Pound Cake. Any plain pound cake will work, I don’t recommend a pound cake with fruit or nuts in it.
- As well, when in a pinch you can use a store-bought pound cake.
- Also, try cinnamon or apple spice instead of the pumpkin spice.
- These bite-size morsels make a great dessert finger food for your frou frou ladies’ luncheons, wedding or baby showers.
- I used both oil and butter in which to toast the pound cake cubes. The oil keeps the butter from burning therefore, I do recommend using both.
