Churro Cake

If you’re a fan of churros, you’re going to LOVE this cake! It’s one of my favorite Spanish treats, turned bundt cake, to enjoy any time of the year.

It’s a classic vanilla cake recipe that’s soft and buttery, covered in melted butter and cinnamon sugar, and served with a generous drizzle of melted hot chocolate.

The vanilla cake is a family favorite, you can serve it as is, add berries, chocolate chips, you name it – it works! It’s made with simple pantry ingredients like butter, flour, eggs and vanilla.

The hot chocolate sauce is my go-to; it’s so easy to make and hardens after a few minutes. I like to drizzle the hot sauce right before serving, but you can also add it ahead of time for a different texture. It’s made by melting chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave, or stovetop if you prefer.

Freshly baked Churro Cake with Hot Chocolate Sauce, made with a classic vanilla cake recipe covered in melted butter and cinnamon sugar.


For the cake

  • 1 cup (227 grams) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups (400 grams) granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 cups + 2 1/2 tbsp (360 grams) all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup (8 fl oz) whole milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

For the cinnamon sugar

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

For the melted chocolate

  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil


For the cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Prepare a bundt pan with (extra) butter and flour, or baking spray.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, about 4 minutes.
  3. Add one egg at a time, beating on medium-high, until fully combined. Add in the vanilla and continue beating.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt.
  5. Reduce the speed to low and begin adding the flour and milk, alternating 3 times starting and ending with flour. Do not over beat.
  6. Pour batter into the pan and bake for 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10-15 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

For the cinnamon sugar: In a small bowl, combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon. Brush the cake with melted butter and coat with sugar mixture, pressing gently with your hands. Serve with chocolate sauce.

For the chocolate sauce: In a microwave safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Heat in 30 second increments, mixing in between until the chocolate is fully melted. Allow to cool a bit before pouring over the cake. It will set within an hour.

  1. I LOVEDDD IT AND DO DID MY FAM. I ran out of cinnamon so I was unable to use the exact amount written, but it was still pretty good. A few questions is the base cake a chiffon cake ? also when coating the cake with melted butter and sugar, my melted butter got soaked by the cake very quickly and my cinnamon sugar did not stick as much… so is there a way to avoid that ?? also what chocolate did you use for chocolate sauce ? despite all that I am definitely making again

    1. I’m so glad! The base is a vanilla cake. Next time, try adding the melted butter in sections so it doesn’t soak it too fast. I used Nestle semi sweet chocolate chips! Hope this helps 🙂
