Churros are known throughout the world. But you'll find the best churro recipes in Spain.
Churros are fried Spanish pastries cooked until crispy and golden.
They are usually dusted with sugar and/or cinnamon and served with chocolate for dipping.
- 1 Cup Flour
- 1 Cup Water
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- Vegetable Oil for Frying
- 1/4 Cup Sugar
Add water and salt to a sauce pan and bring to a boil over high heat.
Stir in the flour and mix vigorously with a wooden spoon until a sticky dough forms. Transfer the dough onto a flat surface and let cool for about a minute, then lightly knead the dough for 1-2 minutes until you form a compact dough.
Transfer the dough into a churrera or piping bag.
Heat about 2 inches of oil in a heavy, high-sided pot over medium-high heat until the oil reaches 360°F.
Squeeze a 5" strip of dough into the hot oil. Repeat, frying 3 or 4 strips at a time. Fry the churros until golden brown, turn them occasionally, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer the cooked churros to a plate lined with paper towels.
When cool enough to touch, roll the churros in sugar.
