Good morning and Happy Summer!
Summer always begins earlier than the real Summer Solstice Day. Do you know what I mean? I don’t know where you are, but here in Cincinnati, OH summer began 3 weeks ago. It has been hot as heck around these parts. The heat does not both me that much. It’s the humidity that kills me. I actually love the feeling of heat on my back and on my face. Love it! Love it! When I feel that heat on my skin I say I’m being “sun-kissed”. Isn’t that cute? I think so anyway. Man, what I would give to lay out on a beach somewhere now and these Churro Muffins at the same time I would have a muffin top for real. Get it?!
What does summer have to do with this Churro Muffin Recipe? Absolutely nothing. I was just sitting here watching Good Morning America and they mentioned how the first day of summer was yesterday and I am thinking to myself “Heck yea its summer outside”. These muffins remind me of summer. No they are not filled with fruit and don’t turn into lemonade once you drink it, but they kind of look “summery” don’t they? I think so at least. They are super easy and almost has the same consistency as a churro. Oh! They taste AMAZING if you dip them in chocolate sauce. I highly recommend that you make these for a quick brunch or breakfast. They are totally appropriate for any time of day. I’m just saying.
