I posted my first recipe of Churros back in 2015. I was a bit flustered back then because I didn’t have the right size for the star tip to have the perfect cylindrical size of Churros but I surely remember how addictive they were dipped in melted chocolate. This time around I have the right star tip and adapted Natasha’s Kitchen’s recipe which isn’t that different from mine except for using 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of milk and added 1 more egg. You can use either recipe and everything will be ALRIGHT in Churros-land.
Don’t let the dough-frying step intimidate you. There are no hard-to-find ingredients or complicated process. Churros are really easy to make. Watch my video below a couple of times to familiarize yourself with the easy steps. I’m guessing you’ll be making Churros quite a lot after the first time.
Easy Homemade Churros
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 stick butter
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup flour
- oil for frying
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp powdered cinnamon
- melted chocolate or caramel for dipping
- Combine water, milk, butter, sugar, and salt in a pot. Let it boil in medium heat while stirring constantly.
- Stir in the flour. Lift the pot away from the heat while stirring. Once combined, return to the heat and keep stirring until a ball of smooth dough forms.
- Transfer the dough into a bowl. Beat with electric mixer to help cool it down. Once cooled, beat in 4 eggs, one at a time.
- Transfer the dough into a piping bag with a large star tip.
- Heat up oil in a bigger pot. Test the oil by dropping a little bit of the dough and when it sizzles/bubbles up then it's ready. Once ready, carefully pipe dough into the oil, cutting in between. This depends how long you want your Churros.
- Fry the dough 2 minutes on each side. Drain in a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat the process. Combine sugar and powdered cinnamon on a plate. Coat the fried Churros with the sugar mixture while they're still warm. You can easily do this in between frying.
Don’t forget to have melted chocolate or caramel for dipping. I’ve used regular Chocolate or Caramel syrup and they were GREAT with these Churros. My daughter prefers chocolate as you’ve seen on the video. I like BOTH!
