"Uncovering the Secret to Making Authentic Churros at Home"

Updated: Mar 31


Churros are a beloved treat that originated in Spain and have since become popular in many parts of the world, particularly in Mexico. These crispy fried dough pastries are often enjoyed dipped in chocolate sauce or dusted with cinnamon sugar. This recipe will guide you through the process of making traditional churros, resulting in golden brown delights with a soft interior and a satisfying crunch.


- 1 cup water

- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

- 1/2 teaspoon salt

- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

- 1 cup all-purpose flour

- Vegetable oil, for frying

- 1/4 cup granulated sugar

- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)

- Chocolate sauce or dulce de leche, for dipping (optional)


1. In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar, salt, and vegetable oil. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar and salt.

2. Once the mixture reaches a rolling boil, remove it from the heat and add the flour all at once. Stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until a smooth dough forms and pulls away from the sides of the pan.

3. Transfer the dough to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip. Alternatively, you can use a sturdy plastic bag with a corner snipped off.

4. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large, heavy-bottomed pot to 375°F (190°C).

5. Carefully pipe the dough directly into the hot oil, using scissors to cut the dough into 4-6 inch lengths. Be cautious of hot oil splatter.

6. Fry the churros in batches, making sure not to overcrowd the pot, until they are golden brown and crispy, about 4-5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon or tongs to transfer the churros to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.

7. In a shallow dish, combine the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon. Roll the warm churros in the cinnamon sugar mixture until evenly coated.

8. Serve the churros warm, either on their own or with your choice of dipping sauce, such as chocolate sauce or dulce de leche.

9. Enjoy the crispy exterior and soft, fluffy interior of these classic churros, whether as a sweet snack or a delicious dessert.

10. Store any leftover churros in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one day. Reheat them in a 350°F (175°C) oven for a few minutes to recrisp before serving, if desired.
