Churros Recipe



  • 250ml Water
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 125g All-Purpose Flour, sifted
  • 250ml Oil
  • Icing Sugar or Cinnamon Sugar for dusting

How to make Churros

  1. Put flour in a heatproof bowl and set aside.
  2. Combine water and salt in a saucepan.
  3. Bring it to a boil.
  4. Pour it over the flour.
  5. Stir till a smooth dough is formed and it separates from the sides of the bowl.
  6. Spoon the dough into a pastry bag with a large tip.
  7. Pipe into hot oil.
  8. Alternatively, pipe on greased and floured baking paper.
  9. Deep fry till golden yellow.
  10. Drain on paper towels.
  11. Dust with icing sugar.

It's too soft to pick up the piped dough. So pipe directly to the hot oil will be easier. Or you can piped it on a floured baking paper then slip it to the hot oil.

    Btw, roughly what temperature do you keep your oil at? Would 180 or 190C sound about right?

    Rachel, i had no idea what's the temperature of my oil. It's hot enough to sizzle the batter but not overly hot to brown it the moment I put in the batter.
