Gluten Free Churros
My son made it through AP Spanish and we wanted a delicious way to help celebrate one of the toughest classes he has ever taken. We decided to create a Gluten Free Churros recipe. This is one of our favorite Mexican desserts and one that inspired this gluten free cupcake recipe.

Are Gluten Free Cupcakes Good?
Of course, gluten free cinnamon cupcakes are scrumptious! Especially, these gluten free churros cupcakes! Depending on the gluten free flour that you use, sometimes the baked goods will have a slightly nutty flavor or a sweet flavor.
Plus, when you bake gluten free products in your home, you know exactly what goes in them. You aren’t getting overly processed foods with high amounts of preservatives and other unhealthy ingredients.
Can Gluten Free Cupcakes Be Frozen?
Yes, absolutely you can freeze gluten free cupcakes! Bake as directed and then you can either frost them or leave them without frosting. Then, wrap them in plastic wrap and then place them in an airtight container. This will keep them fresh and ready to eat when you are ready. If you chose not to frost them ahead of time, you can add the icing when they have been defrosted.
To thaw the gluten free churro cupcakes (or whatever kind of cupcakes you baked), place them on the counter and they will defrost fairly quick. You can also place them in the fridge overnight too.

How to Make This Gluten Free Churros Cupcakes Recipe:
Add the dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend. In another bowl, add the wet ingredients and whisk to blend.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix.
This is what your cupcake batter should look like.
Pour your batter into paper-lined muffin cups. Fill each 3/4 deep with batter. Bake at 350F degrees for 22 minutes until done.
How can you tell when your cupcakes are done baking?
You can test if they are done by inserting a toothpick into a cupcake. If the toothpick comes out clean, they are ready. If there is batter or crumbs on the toothpick it needs to bake a little longer.
