How To Make Churro Bites

Start by adding your butter and brown sugar in a bowl. Mix it up and then add in the cinnamon, milk, flour, baking powder, and salt. Whip it up without overmixing the batter.

If you overmix it will make the batter dense as it cooks in the pressure cooker. Spoon batter into a greased egg bite mold, and then cover. I have the egg bite mold with the silicone lid. If yours is plastic use aluminum foil as the plastic will melt.

Pressure cook on high for 12 minutes with a 5-minute natural release. Remove your churro muffins, and roll in cinnamon and sugar and then dive in!

Can I Double This Churro Muffin Recipe

Yes! If you have more egg bite molds, just stack them up and cook as directed. The time will stay the same, or if you are a little concerned you can add 1-2 minutes extra.

The bites don’t rise too much so they will be safe to stack right on top of each other. Just make sure to cover each egg bite mold.

Instant Pot Dessert Bites

These Instant Pot Dessert Bites are such a dream. Best of all they make 7 churro dessert bites for you to whip up for that late-night snack attack.

It is best to serve these warm, as they have the best texture and moist factor when eaten fresh.

How To Prevent Churro Muffins From Sticking In Silicone Mold

Spritz cooking spray into each hole of the mold before you pour your churro batter in. It will make popping these mini muffins right out of the mold with little to no effort.

I just flipped them over with lid on bottom, and then pushed my finger on the bottom of each to release. Then I lifted up and the muffins were all out.

This truly is an easy churro bites recipe that takes minimal effort.

Do You Roll In Butter Before Cinnamon Sugar Mix

No, I didn’t. I wanted to make them less greasy on how they feel so I took the warm bites and rolled them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

If you would prefer to dip in butter first, followed by the sugar mix, go right ahead.

What To Serve With Churros

Mexican churros tend to be eaten alone, dipped in chocolate sauce, warm caramel sauce or served along with a hot chocolate or even coffee.

I tend to just eat them plain, cause they are so addictive that way. I also have done dulce de leche and dipped and that was a sinfully delicious dessert.

How to Store Leftover Bites

If you have leftovers, you will want to allow your bites to fully cool. Then place in an airtight container or sealable bag, and store for 2-4 days on the counter.

These are best fresh, and you might want to toss them in the microwave for a few seconds to warm them up and give them that fresh take. These churro mini muffins will dry out fast.

Can You Freeze Homemade Churro Mini Muffins

If you want to freeze these bites, I recommend leaving the cinnamon and sugar topping off, and freeze just the mini muffins.

Then once you pull from the freezer and they are thawed, dip in butter and roll in the cinnamon and sugar mix. This will help them from getting too soggy in the freezer.

  • 1/3 cup melted butter (unsalted)

  • 1/2 cup milk or milk alternative
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • dash of salt

Cinnamon Sugar Topping

  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  1. First, you want to start by adding 1 cup of water into your pressure cooker pot. Then spritz your egg bite mold with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl add in your butter and brown sugar. Mix it up until smooth and blended.
  3. Add in your cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Stir and slowly pour in your milk.

Mine weren’t great. Very dense and doughy in the center. I think I can see potential though! I ended up putting a couple in the oven to try to continue to bake them which didn’t completely solve the issue but we ate them anyway

I am sorry they didn't turn out. I have made them so many times with no issues, sorry they didn't work out for you. You might have overmixed for the dense, as for the doughy. Did you make sure to cover them tightly to ensure no condensation could get in? Sorry they didn't work well for you.

Just tried these today. So good! Thank you!

I don't have an instant pot, could you make in the oven?


Sunday 12th of April 2020

Yes you sure can. Just use a mini muffin pan and do 350 degrees and cook for 5-10 minutes or until each mini muffin is cooked. Then roll in the cinnamon sugar as directed!


Saturday 11th of April 2020

Very easy to do. To me there more like a donut hole than churro but taste good!


Saturday 11th of April 2020

Yes, I called them bites since they are bite-size ;-)

Can you use gluten free flour to make them GF?


Saturday 11th of April 2020

Hey Michele! I have not tried using gluten free flour but I am sure if you measure right and convert to the same measurement I don't see why it wouldn't work. Good luck if you try it!
