Homemade Churros

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. They're delicious. Try 'em.

easy homemade churros recipe

  • 1 cup water
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups oil for frying (corn, peanut, canola, light olive)
  • For coating, mix together in a shallow dish:
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon


In a pot, add water, butter, sugar and salt. Mix together until butter melts and water boils.

Turn off heat when water boils and add flour. Mix until you get a dough.

Place dough on a mixing bowl and let cool for 5 minutes or so.

In a small bowl, beat eggs with vanilla extract. Then add to mixing bowl with dough. Blend until thick and smooth.

Heat your frying oil to 350 deg F.

While heating, fill pastry bag with dough.

In a separate bowl, prepare coating by mixing sugar and cinnamon.

When oil is properly heated, push snippets of dough in the oil and fry them for 3-4 minutes.

Remove from oil and place on top of paper towels to drain oil.

When oil is drained, coat each churro with sugar and cinnamon.
