Enjoy a pot of pure melted chocolate next to cinnamon and sugar coated churros.  This churros recipe shows you how to make curly churros and the straight ones just like you find at san churros cafe. 

Churros Recipe Ingredients

250ml water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour
3 eggs
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla

Cinnamon Sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Chocolate pot
100g (3.53 ounces) milk chocolate

1l oil for deep frying if making curly churros

Churros batter
Melt the butter and the water in a saucepan.
Add the flour stirring continuously. Keep stirring over the heat until the mixture thickens and clumps together into a smooth ‘ball’ (see video).
Remove form the heat and stir in the eggs one at a time.
Add the vanilla and sugar and mix well.
Spoon into a piping bag fitted with a star shaped nozzle (you can make them round if you prefer).

Curly Churros
Heat the oil to 360F (182.22 degrees Celsius). Pipe churros batter straight into the hot oil. Use you fingers or a knife to break off the batter when it is the required length. Once the churros are browned lift out and put onto a plate covered with some paper towel to drain.

Straight Churros
Pipe long strips of churros batter onto a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper. Spray lightly with cooking oil.
Bake in the oven 200C (392 degrees Fahrenheit) for 12 minutes or until crisp on the outside and soft in the middle.

As soon as your churros come out of the hot oil or oven sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Melt your chocolate in the microwave (30 seconds stir, 20 seconds stir, 10 seconds store, repeat 10 sec stir until melted). OR melt in a bowl resting over a pan with simmering water at the bottom. Make sure the water is not touching the bowl and stir continuously until melted. Pour the chocolate into a small serving bowl. Serve churros warm.

    Hello Ann,
    Your churros look amazing and it seems really easy to make them, but I was wondering how can I replace the cooking oil spray thingy that you spray on the churros before you put them in the oven; because I don’t think they are making those sprays in our country… So what do you think, should I just buy an empty spray bottle and fill it with vegetable oil or is there any other stuff that I can use instead? Loving your videos!

    Hi Ann,

    about the butter, can you estimate the 1/2 cup in grams??

    it would be much easier :)


  7. Hanna says:

    How much water would that be to people in the United States..? Btw, I love your channel, Ann.

  8. Dowty says:

    This idea is lovely! Thank you so much, Ann!
    Especially the fact that one doesn’t have to deep fry the dough makes me happy. I really love deep fried food now and then, but I don’t like having to do that myself.

    One thing, though: as a Non-British European who usually doesn’t use cup measurements, I had to figure out how many grams half a cup of butter could be. Flour and water were easy: a little less than 1/4 l. Fine. But… butter?
    Sooo… for my fellow metric measurement users: some conversion website said it’s about 114 g (or a tiny bit less than half a pack).
    I am going to try that out and then tell you how it worked.

    • Dowty says:

      So it did work! Next time I had better use a thicker piping tip, they did not grow as much as I had expected, but they became nice and golden and looked beautiful.
      However, the taste was a little bit too “eggy” for me. Do you think the recipe will still work if I reduce the egg content?

    i love your site but Iam an arab girl and dont understand totally what you wrote
    i do my best to translate it
    i ask if you translate it to arabic and please make some arabic food :D

    iam sorry if i write some words wrong


  10. Amy says:

    Can anyone tell me how many churros does this recipe make roughly? (When cooking them in the oven) love your website Ann!

    • Ann Ann says:

      it’s a bit hard to say amy as that depends on how long you make them & the size of your piping tip. More than enough for 4 people though

  11. Jackie says:

    Hi Ann, why is it that my churros puffed up when I deep fry them. It doubled or tripled the size. I don’t know what went wrong.

    • Amy says:

      I’m obviously not an expert but I had a thought that it might be because you used self – raising flour rather than plain all – purpose flour?

      • caroline says:

        I am making these for a book club that I’m in and I was wondering how many churros this recipe makes to find out if I need to make more batter so I have enough for everyone. If you could get back to me as soon as possible that would be great.

        thank you.

  12. Zaineb says:

    Today i made these churros yummy.

  13. Miranda says:

    What size/kind of tip did you use for pipping?

  14. Fran says:

    Hi Ann! I wanna give you my congratulations. I’m from Spain, where churros had their origin and I must say I’m shocked seeing you cooked the churros in the oven. Traditionally they are cooked into boiling olive oil, I never thought they could be cooked in oven, but is a healthier method to eat them. Next time that I want to take churros in my breakfast, I will put them in oven. Thank you!! I like your website a lot :)
