© Isabel Forester – Churros

I made churros for the first time and I was suprised how easy it is (only I’m making a mess in the kitchen, but I’m anyway a messy kitchen-wizard). Delicious!


  • 1 cup water
  • 5 tbsp butter (unsalted)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • oil to fry
  • for the coating: 1/2 cup sugar + 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Step 1: Make the dough 

Heat the water together with sugar, salt and butter until it boils and everything dissolved. Then turn off heat and add flour (all at once) and stir it until it forms a ball. I use the dough hook for it. Turn it into a mixing bowl and let it cool down 5 min.

Step 2:

Beat the eggs together with the vanilla extract in a bowl until they get foamy. Add it to the dough, first only the half then the other half, and mix well under. If you let the dough sit again for a while, it gets a bit harder and the shape will turn out nicer, but its not necessary.

Step 3: Deep-fry

Heat the oil in a pan, the recipe says to 350°F. I used the middle flame, or a bit higher, but take care: it has to be hot, but not too hot so the dough doesn’t burn right away and has a little time to get done. Set up your piping bag with a star tip and fill it until half with the dough. Now you can release the dough into the oil and cut it off when it’s like 10cm long. Frye until they have a nice golden brown color. Put 2-3 layers of paper towel on a plate, so you can sit the done churros on it (they are less oily then).

Step 4: Coating

Mix cinnamon and sugar in a smaller bowl. After the churros lost a bit of their oil you can coat them.

Instead of cinnamon sugar I’m sure you could also try ground nuts & sugar, vanilla sugar, Nutella and many other coatings.
