This is what I like to think of as a mic drop kind of recipe. Churro cake. See above evidence. What more is there to say, really? In the interest of pretending you need more convincing, let’s just take a closer look at this beauty, shall we? The whole situation starts with, you guessed it, churros! These serve as both a garnish on top of the cake as well as the base of the churro crumble in between the layers. The leftover cinnamon-sugar from coating the churros is baked into the cake itself, along with brown butter which we already know is one of the best things ever. Add to that layers of dark chocolate ganache with a hint of spice from both cayenne and cinnamon and layers of creamy vanilla ice cream, and we have what is without a doubt the very best birthday cake I have made for anyone ever.
Lucky me, it was for my own birthday! Just when I thought I wouldn’t be able to top the vanilla caramel latte cake from last year, I went and made this business. Now I truly am convinced that this cannot be topped and quite frankly, what would be the point in trying? Like I said, mic drop.
