About: Artist who enjoys using different types of media. I hope to make many more instructables in the future :)

This is my favorite recipe for when I make churros myself. I hope you like them too!

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 1 cup of Water

  • 1 cup of All Purpose Flour

  • 3 Tbsp of Unsalted Butter

  • 1 Tbsp of Vegetable Oil

  • 4 Eggs

  • 1 Tbsp of Granulated Sugar

  • 1 tsp of Salt

  • 1 tsp of Vanilla Extract

  • Canola Oil for frying

  • ½ cup of Granulated Sugar for coating

  • 2 T of Ground Cinnamon

Step 2:

In a pan, add the water, butter, vegetable oil, sugar, vanilla, and salt, then bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to low and add the flour, stirring until the mixture turns into a ball. Cook this mixture for about 1 minute. (Keep mixing it)

Step 3:

After you have removed the dough from the heat, add one egg a time and mix well after each addition to make sure the egg is well combined.

Step 4:

Create a piping bag by cutting a small hole in the corner of a plastic bag and inserting a large star tip. Add the dough mixture and squish down to the tip.

Step 5:

Heat up your oil, and then use your piping bag to create the churros. Flip over with tongs to create a even brown exterior.

Step 6:

Place cooked churros on paper napkin to soak up any excess oil.

Step 7:

Roll churros in cinnamon sugar.

Step 8:

Voila! Your churros are ready to eat. The sooner the better as everyone like a hot churro right off the stove :)
