Homemade churros are the perfect treat. They are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and the cinnamon sugar creates a distinctive flavor. Accompany them with a sauce or hot beverage like hot chocolate to take your experience to the next level. It’s an easy recipe to make and a hard one to resist.


  • 1/2 cup milk, whole

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/2 cup butter, unsalted

  • 1 tsp sugar.

  • 1/2 tsp Salt

  • 1 cup all purpose flour

  • 4 eggs, large (cold)

  • Vegetable or canola oil to fry the churros

  • Cinnamon Sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 TBSP cinnamon, ground


  • In a sauce pan combine the milk, water, butter, sugar and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat and stir frequently.
  • Remove from the heat and immediately stir in the flour with a wooden spoon. Incorporate the flour completely.
  • Place back on the stove but this time on low heat and continue stirring for approximately 2 minutes to partially cook the flour and get rid of extra moisture.
  • You are looking for the dough to form a smooth ball and a thin film to form on the bottom of the pan.
  • Transfer to a large mixing bowl. With a paddle attachment mix on medium speed to cool the paste. When the side of the bowl feels warm to the touch, turn the speed to medium low and add 4 large eggs, one at a time. Scrape the bowl as need.
  • The dough is ready when the eggs are fully incorporated, the batter is smooth and forms a thick ribbon when lifted.
  • Heat 2’’deep of vegetable or canola oil to 350F-375F degrees, over medium heat. Keep the oil temperature between 350F-375F degrees while frying with the help of a deep fry thermometer.
  • Transfer the dough to a pastry bag fitted with a large open star tip (1M Wilton); fill the bag half way.
  • Pipe the dough a few inches above the oil and cut the ends off with kitchen scissors. Try not to overcrowd the pot.
  • Fry until golden brown and crispy on both sides. Transfer them to a plate lined with a paper towel and then roll/cover in cinnamon sugar.

  • Allowing the paste to cook is very important because if we add the eggs while it is still hot, the mix will cook the eggs.
  • Add the eggs to the dough one at the time and stop as soon as you have the desired consistency.
  • You can make the churros any size you like, these are about 6’’ in length.
  • Pair these churros with Salted ganache
