Simple Churros Recipe

Mexican Churros. Make your own at home. Tastes as good as those you buy from street fairs and art walks.

Almost every street festivals and county fairs that I've been to had churros. These very sweet and crunchy Mexican treats are essentially deep-fried dough and could be made from your kitchen. has a really simple recipe to follow.

Crunchy Churros

  • 2-1/2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup and 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 20 cups oil for frying
  • 1-1/4 cups white sugar, or to taste
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

I had to scale therecipe's ingredients to yield a new amount (10). The directions below still refer to the original recipe yield (4).

1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine water, 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in flour until mixture forms a ball.

2. Heat oil for frying in deep-fryer or deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Pipe strips of dough into hot oil using a pastry bag (i.e. Ateco 6-Piece Pastry Tube and Tips Set). Fry until golden; drain on paper towels.

3. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon. Roll drained churros in cinnamon and sugar mixture.

One thing about churros is that they can be a little bit burnt and still taste decent. Though they taste much better unburnt. See my flan post for another sweet treat.
