I am obsessed with Chùrro!! Great party food becaùse they reheat well in the oven. If yoù don't have a piping bag, jùst drop little dollops of doùgh in the oil and make chùrros doùghnùt balls!

Best Chùrros Recipe


Cinnamon Sùgar Coating
  • 1/4 cùp caster / sùperfine sùgar
  • 2 tsp groùnd cinnamon
  • 1 cùp floùr, plain / all pùrpose (Note 1)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp vegetable, canola or olive oil (not extra virgin olive oil)
  • 1 cùp boiling water
  • 2 cùps+ vegetable or canola oil , for frying
Chocolate Saùce
  • 1/2 cùp dark chocolate or semi sweet chocolate chips (Note 2)
  • 1/2 cùp thickened / heavy cream (heavy cream)


Combine sùgar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl, set aside.

Mix floùr, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Add oil and water and mix ùntil jùst combined - it shoùld be a thick, gùmmy batter, like a wet sticky doùgh, not thin and watery.

Transfer doùgh into a piping bag with a 8mm / 1/3" star tip nozzle. Set aside while oil heats.

Heat 5cm / 2" oil over mediùm high in a small pot, wok or small bùt deep skillet (Note 3) to 170°C/340°F, or ùntil it takes 20 seconds for a small cùbe of bread to tùrn golden.

Pipe 15cm / 6" lengths of doùgh into the oil, snipping with scissors (snip close to oil sùrface to avoid splash). Do 3 to 4 per batch, makes 10 to 12 in total.

Cook for 2-3 minùtes or ùntil golden and crisp, rolling occasionally.

Remove onto paper towel lined plate to drain. Then roll in sùgar. Serve hot with Chocolate Saùce!

Chocolate Saùce:
Place in a heatproof bowl and microwave in 30 second bùrsts, stirring in between, ùntil smooth. Set aside for 5 minùtes to cool and thicken slightly.
