  • 1 box cinnamon muffin mix Krusteaz
  • 3/4 tbsp cinnamon topping
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar topping
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c buttermilk
  • 3/4 c brown sugar mix packet included in the box
  • 1 tbsp sugar topping


  • Mix cake mix, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, eggs, 3/4 c. of the brown sugar mix in the packet that is included in your muffin mix box, and buttermilk until smooth.
  • Spray your egg mold with a bit of non stick spray and fill your cups 3/4 of the way full. Add 1.5 c water into your pot and put a trivet into pot as well.
  • Cover egg mold with foil, use a sling to lower it down on to your trivet. (if you have 2 egg molds you can stack both in the same pot for the same time and make a double batch at once)
  •  Close lid and steam valve.
  • Set Instant Pot or other pressure cooker to high pressure for 12 minutes. Allow to naturally release all steam.
  • Remove egg mold and take off foil.
  • Allow to cool for just a few minutes, until you can pick up the mold.
  • Gently push on the bottom of each hole to pop out each churro bite.
  • Add 4 tbsp. brown sugar on to a plate or bowl and roll each churro bite into it so they are coated, will stick to outside.
  • Mix remaining 1/2 tbsp cinnamon and 1 tbsp sugar into a bowl and sprinkle on top of each one generously. 
  • Enjoy!
    Can use an injector filled with cream cheese frosting to push frosting into the center of each one too if you want.
