Homemade Churros

Homemade churros are delicious and popular in many cultures. Prepared with a simple batter of flour, water and salt, they are fried until crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. They are ideal to accompany with hot chocolate or sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon.


• 1 cup (240 ml) of water

• 2 tablespoons of sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

• 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil (can be corn, canola or sunflower)

• Additional sugar for dusting

Preparing homemade churros is a delicious culinary adventure. Gather flour, water, and salt for a dough, then fry it until golden brown churros and sprinkle with sugar.


In a medium saucepan, heat the water, sugar, salt, and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Bring the mixture to a boil.

Once the mixture is boiling, remove the saucepan from the heat and add the wheat flour all at once. Stir quickly with a wooden spoon until the dough forms a ball and pulls away from the sides of the pan.

Transfer the dough to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip. Let the dough cool for a few minutes.

Meanwhile, heat enough oil in a deep skillet to fry the churros. Oil temperature should be around 180-190°C (355-375°F).

Squeeze the dough directly into the hot oil in about 6-inch (15-cm) long strips. You can use scissors to cut the dough.

Fry the churros in batches, avoiding overcrowding the pan. Cook until golden and crisp, about 2-4 minutes per side.

Remove the fried churros and place them on absorbent paper to remove excess oil.

In a shallow dish, mix cinnamon sugar to taste. Pass the churros through this mixture so that they are evenly covered.

Serve the churros hot and enjoy them with hot chocolate, dulce de leche or simply on their own. Ready! Now you can enjoy delicious homemade churros. Remember that cooking times can vary, so keep an eye on the churros as you fry them to make sure they are golden brown and crisp. Enjoy!
