Simple Churros Recipe

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.
