Churros Recipe – Must Have Cinco de Mayo Dessert

Have you ever had a truly authentic Mexican dessert? What’s you favorite? Mine is a toss up between Tres Leches Cake and Churros. If I had to choose one o have it would probably be – drumroll please…

Churros!

I’m a total sucker for churros. They’re so simple yet amazing. The fact that they’re super easy to fix makes them even sweeter – and I mean that quite literally. The only problem I have with making them is using a pastry bag to form them. It may just be my recipe, but getting the dough through a tip is almost impossible. I had to make John do it since he has the muscles in the family.

I eventually had to change out the star tip for an open round tip. Even he was straining and we were a little worried the bag would bust.  Eventually I just started playing with the dough, making churros balls and pulling/stretching it to make thick Churros Logs. 

They may not have been the prettiest things, but my were they yummy. This recipe makes a perfectly dense churro that has just the right amount of bite without being too chewy.

Recipe Type: Dessert
Cuisine: Mexican
Author: Amber
Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Cinnamon Sugar (1/2 cup sugar + 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon)
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat your deep fryer or a heavy pot with 2 quarts of oil. Add the cinnamon sugar to a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, water, baking powder and salt. Add the 2 tablespoons of oil and mix together to form a ball
  3. Put the dough in a pastry bag with a star or round tip (you can bypass the tip if you prefer.)
  4. Pipe the dough out, around 6 inches at a time (you will need to cut or tear the dough to remove it from the bag). Carefully drop 3 or 4 churros into the hot oil and cook until golden brown.
  5. Remove from the oil and immediately roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture, tapping off any excess.
  6. Serve with your favorite chocolate dipping sauce or plain.
