churros with cinnamon sugar

Monday, 11 November 2013

 churros are Mexican style doughnut strands made with a fried choux pastry mixture,
i rolled then in cinnamon sugar.
it was my first time trying them and i have to admit im a convert, they taste so good.

1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1/4 cup water
125g butter
4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
tsp cinnamon
in a pan add the butter and water, stir until butter has melted, add the sugar and salt and bring to a rapid bowl, remove from the heat and stir in the flour,
stir vigorously until the mixture forms a ball and comes away from the sides of the pan.
put back onto the heat and cook for 1/2 minutes.
heat oil until it reaches 180c 350f or use a deep fat fryer,
add the mixture into a piping bag and with a star nozzle and pipe in the mixture being careful not to drop the mixture in a splash the oil.
cook for 2/4 minutes on each side
roll in cinnamon sugar
eat while warm


  1. I love churros, especially dipped in Spanish style, thick hot chocolate. Just FYI you have a couple typos. I think "tying" should be "trying" and it should be "I'm a convert" not "in a convert". Cheers!

  2. Ok, I'm sold! They look delicious! I'm trying this soon! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Oh my gosh I love churros!! Every time we go somewhere where they are churros I have to get one. Now I can make my own!

  4. I have never made churros before but I love them! I can't wait to try this recipe!

  5. Thank you for sharing these. They look scrumptious. I've only had the "real" Spanish version once and yum! Glad to have a recipe. Pinning.
