Churro Bars

The blog where I first saw this recipe called it churro brownies, but can something without chocolate count as a brownie?? I’m not convinced. This is its own tasty cinnamon-y thing, no need to add confusion!

Ingredients:

  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • a pinch kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange zest (about 2 oranges’ worth)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • flaked sea salt, for garnishing (I only had more kosher salt!)

In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the butter then remove from the heat and let cool about 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×9″ baking dish and set aside.

Whisk the brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla into the cooled butter.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and orange zest, then stir into the wet ingredients until evenly mixed.

Transfer into the greased pan and spread evenly – this is not a super ton of batter to fill that sized pan, but do make sure you get it out to all the sides/corners.

Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small dish (looks like A Lot of cinnamon, but doesn’t taste overwhelming) and sprinkle evenly over the top of the batter. Bake 20-25 minutes, until the edges are set. Sprinkle with a bit of the sea salt, then cool for 20 minutes in the pan before slicing and serving.
