Baked Churros
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 7-10
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • -------------------------------------------------------------
  • For the Coating:
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • -------
  • 1 Tablespoon butter for brushing
  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 10-12 minutes for it to cool down.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheet with non stick baking mat or parchment paper.
  4. Prepare cinnamon & sugar mix for coating (I used a bread pan to roll the churros in).
  5. Fill your pastry bag or ziploc bag fitted with a star tip with the warm dough.
  6. Using prepared baking sheet pipe dough into desired size strips (I made mine 7½" long). Use a knife or scissors to cut end of strips off.
  7. Once your done piping your churros bake in oven for 10-12 min if your using a smaller size tip or until the ends are just faintly turning a pale golden color. Place oven on broil setting about 1 min or less to brown & crisp up the edges (Watch Careful, browning happens very fast on broil!). If your using a really large size tip bake for 20 min or until it's just starting to brown on the end, then broil for about 1 min. watching careful just until the edges get a little browned.
  8. Remove from oven & let cool for a few minutes. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter & brush onto churros, roll churros in cinnamon & sugar mix. Serve warm.
