To make churro cupcakes, start with a boxed vanilla cake mix (I used Betty Crocker), and prepare the batter as directed. Add 2 tsp. of cinnamon to the batter along with 1 tbsp. of vanilla extract. Divide batter into baking paper lined cupcake tins.
In a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup of Sugar In The Raw turbinado sugar (coarse grain) and 1 tsp. cinnamon. Sprinkle a generous amount on top of the cupcake batter, and bake as directed on the box.
Top each cinnamon vanilla cupcake with my favorite cinnamon cream cheese icing and another generous sprinkle of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Sooooo good!
