Homemade Churros are one of the best amusement park treats out there. This sugary sweet treat is an easy dessert recipe you can make with the kids. My Grand kids love to help and fight over who is going to be the first one to get them when they are done. LOL

How to Make Homemade Churros Maya from Alaska From Scratch


  1. In a shallow dish, mix together the cinnamon, salt and sugars. Set aside. In a saucepan over medium heat,add the water, butter,sugar,salt, and vanilla. Stir until butter is melted and ingredients are combined. Sift in the flour and stir until a dough ball forms.
  2. Remove from heat. Place dough into the bowl of a stand-mixer and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Set a large,heavy-bottomed pot (I used my dutch oven),filled with 2 inches of oil over medium-high heat. Using the paddle attachment, beat in eggs,one at a time,to the dough.
  3. Scoop batter into a large piping bag fitted with the large star tip. When the oil is good and hot (350-375 degrees),pipe churros (I made mine about 6 inches long,but the length is your preference) into pot in batches of 4 at a time (or as many as fit well in the pan without crowding).
  4. Fry until golden brown and crisp on bottom (mine took 60-90 seconds each side), then flip. Drain fried churros on paper towels and dip directly into cinnamon sugar mixture while still hot.
  5. Repeat process until all the batter has been used. I kept them warm in a 200 degree oven on cookie sheets while the rest were fried.
