How to Make Churro Bites
In a bowl, you are going to cream together your butter, sugar, cinnamon, and milk. You want to whisk until nice and creamy.
Now stir in the dry ingredients and mix until it is combined.
Then pour the batter into the prepped egg bite mold, and cover tightly with aluminum foil.
Add water into the Instant Pot and place the trivet in to sit the egg bite mold on. Pressure cook as directed.
It is important to fully cover the bites or they will get water in them due to the condensation and become soggy in texture.
Once done, remove and then roll the warm muffin bites in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. This is such an easy churro recipe that can be eaten alone or pair with a classic churro sauce for dipping.
Nothing beats a chocolate churro sauce!
Can You Freeze These Churro Bites
Churro bites can be frozen if you don't plan to eat them all right away. Just allow them to fully cool. Then transfer to a freezer bag or container and freeze for 2-3 months.
Thaw on the counter or in the fridge if you want. These bites are so good. Great for holiday entertaining, a fun breakfast, or even a potluck dish you take.
Can I Use Gluten Free Flour For This Churro Recipe
So I have not tried using a gluten-free flour. But, if you use a gluten-free flour blend and measure properly for what you are using, I don't see why it wouldn't work.
If you try gluten-free with this churro bites recipe let me know in the comments on how you liked it.
My Cinnamon and Sugar Didn't Stick To Outside
So if you don't roll your bites when they are still warm, they will have issues getting the coating to stick. If you run into that, there is an easy solution.
Just add some melted butter in a bowl, lightly dip the churro bite, and then roll in the cinnamon sugar. It will stick really well.
