Churros Recipe



100 gram butter
100 ml milk
100 ml water
pinch salt
100 gram all purpose flour
4 eggs

oil for frying

For dusting 

100 gram sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon 


1. Melt the butter in a pan add  the milk, water and salt bring to the boil. When the mixture is boiling rapidly, add the flour all at once, reduce the heat to medium and, without a second’s hesitation, start stirring the mixture like mad with a wooden spoon.  The dough will come together very quickly and a slight crust will form on the bottom of the pan, but you have to keep stirring – vigorously – another 2 to 3 minutes to dry the dough.  At the end of this time, the dough will be very smooth. Place the dough in a bowl and allow to cool.

2. Make the sugar mixture: Stir the sugar and cinnamon; set aside.

3. One at a time, add the eggs to the dough, beat until each egg is thoroughly incorporated.  As soon as you add the first egg, your dough will separate.  Keep working and by the time you add the third egg it will start coming together again.  When all the eggs are incorporated, the dough will be thick and shiny. 

4. Spoon the dough into a piping bag with a star tip.

5. Heat about an inch of oil to 350 F in a deep cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Carefully pipe the dough into the oil. Fry, turning once, until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.

6. Roll in cinnamon sugar. Serve with chocolate sauce.
