  • Yield : 10

A churro is a fried-dough pastry—predominantly choux—based snack. Churros are popular in Spain and parts of the United States. In Spain, they are normally eaten for breakfast dipped in hot chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plus 1 1/2 Tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons plus 2 quarts vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

Method

Step 1

Combine 1/2 cup sugar with the cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Set aside. Line a plate with paper towels. In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the water, 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil.

Step 2

Bring the mixture to a boil then remove it from the heat. Stir in the flour, mixing until it forms a ball. Heat 3 to 4 inches of vegetable oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot set over medium-high heat until it reaches 375ºF.

Step 3

Transfer the dough to a cloth pastry bag or heavy-duty plastic bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe the dough over the pot of oil to a length of about 4 inches, then using scissors or a sharp knife, cut it so it releases into the oil.

Step 4

Pipe 2 to 3 churros into the oil at a time, frying them until they're golden brown and cooked through. Transfer the churros to the paper towel-lined plate to drain for 2 minutes, then roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Repeat the frying and coating process with the remaining dough. Serve the churros with the warm chocolate sauce.
