Does it get any better than fried angel food cake coated in cinnamon sugar? These Angel Food Churro Bites are so easy and taste so good!
Angel Food Churro Bites
I love cinnamon and sugar, you could put it on almost anything and I would want to try it. Well, maybe not *anything* but I think you get my point. Joe tells me that I need my cinnamon fix regularly or I can get a little carried away. I have no idea what he’s talking about, cinnamon is good for you!
I ran across these Angel Food Churro Bites from Lil Luna one day and knew I had to have them. I have no impulse control so I found myself in the store with an angel food cake in my hand the next day.
Y’all, these were way too easy and didn’t take any time at all. I popped open the cake and sliced some of it into cubes. Thankfully I’m lazy so I didn’t cut up the whole cake, because we probably would have eaten all of it.
I got my oil heated up and threw a few in until they turned a nice golden brown. When I pulled them out of the oil I gave them a brief rest on a plate covered with a couple of paper towels to soak up the excess oil.
I keep a container of cinnamon sugar in my pantry and honestly, I have no idea what the ratio of cinnamon to sugar is. I’ve given an estimate in the recipe but mostly I add the sugar and dump in cinnamon until it looks right to me. Also, I do tend to go a little heavier on the cinnamon so…proceed with caution!
After about 30 seconds on the paper towels, I dumped the fried cake in the cinnamon sugar and rolled them around. I had to try a few while they were still hot and Oh MY, so much yum! Of course, they are still really good after they’ve cooled too. Joe and I barely made it past the pictures before we destroyed these. I didn’t get around to the dipping sauce until after we had eaten most of them because I couldn’t walk away without worrying that Joe would finish them without me. It added some creamy sweetness to the bites so if you like that you might want to make it before you start frying the cake!
I love angel food cake already but I may never be able to eat it without frying it and rolling it in cinnamon sugar. It would be completely acceptable to do this with a slice for strawberry shortcake, wouldn’t it? Y’all if you like cinnamon sugar, you’ve GOT to try this.
