Crunchy and easy to make! A little time consuming but they are so worth it. There is nothing better than making churros at home!
Servings 10 Churros
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 eggs beaten
- Vegetable oil for frying
In a plate mix the sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a medium sauce pan, add the water, salt and the butter and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the flour and stir with a wooden spoon. Reduce the heat to low and continue stirring the mixture until it forms a ball, about 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and let the dough cool down a bit.
Add the eggs gradually into the dough and mix with the wooden spoon until combined well.
In a large pot, add about 2 inches of oil and heat over medium-high heat until the oil reaches 360 degrees F.
Meanwhile, spoon the churro dough into a pastry bag fitted with a large tip (I used 1M). Pipe churros batter straight into the hot oil. Use your fingers or a knife to break off the batter when it is the required length. Once the churros are browned (about 2 minutes) lift out and put onto a plate covered with some paper towel to drain.
As soon as your churros come out of the hot oil sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mix.
