Serves: 10-15
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • -------------------------------------------------------------
  • Oil for frying (enough to fill your saucepan to 2”)
  • -------------------------------------------------------------
  • For the Coating:
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1. Combine water, sugar, salt, & oil in a saucepan on stove top. Bring to boil & remove from heat. Add flour & stir until all the flour is incorporated.
  2. Set aside & wait about 10-15 minutes for it to cool down.
  3. Prepare cinnamon & sugar mix for coating (I used a pie plate).
  4. Also have a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the oil.
  5. Fill a medium sized saucepan with 2” of vegetable oil. If you have a candy thermometer clip it to your sauce pan. Heat oil for frying to 350 degrees. (If you don't have a thermometer you can test the oil by putting a small piece of dough in, if it starts to brown in a minute or two it should be hot enough. I used a medium heat setting once the oil had reached 350 degrees).
  6. Fill your pastry bag fitted with a star tip with the dough (I put half the dough into the bag).
  7. While you’re waiting for the oil to heat up pipe out 5-6” strips of dough onto parchment paper or a non-stick mat.
  8. Scoop up your dough with a metal spatula & add to oil when it’s hot. Fry for about 2-4 minutes or until it’s starting to turn light golden brown around the edges (you may need to flip it once). Remove with slotted spatula or spoon. Place on paper towels to drain & then transfer to cinnamon & sugar mix & roll to coat or use a spoon & sprinkle it over the churro.
