Churros are crispy on the outside but tender on the inside. Coated with sugar and cinnamon and dipped in your favorite sauce, they make for a great snack or dessert with the right level of sweetness and chewiness. They are served with many kinds of dipping sauces, and in some cases, they are filled with them for extra deliciousness.


Water Unsalted butter White sugar Spices: cinnamon, nutmeg. All-purpose flour Egg: While for other dessert recipes you may have to use room temperature eggs, for this one is best to use a cold egg. Salt Vanilla extract Vegetable oil

Step 1

In a large saucepan, add the water along with butter, sugar, and other spices. Bring it to a rolling boil and reduce the flame to medium heat. Also, use a wooden spoon to stir the mixture. Transfer dough into another large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, and let it cool for about 5 minutes. After that, add an egg and vanilla extract.

Step 2

Next, mix the sugar mixture, and set it aside. After that, transfer the dough to a piping bag. To form the ridges as you pipe out, use a large star tip, Wilton 1M works great. Also, let the dough rest for just a few minutes.

Step 3

Prepare for frying by placing a large pot over medium-high heat. Alternatively, heat oil in a deep pan or cast-iron pot. You will need to cover the bottom of the pan with about 2 inches of vegetable oil.

Step 4

Once cooked, drain the excess oil by transferring the pieces onto a plate lined with paper towels. Alternatively, arrange them onto a baking sheet covered with paper towels. Then, immediately roll each one into the cinnamon-sugar mixture earlier prepared.
