Churros are made by piping dough into hot oil, deep frying it, then rolling it up and coating it with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. If you like churros


If you have ever made homemade doughnuts, you will want to make these churros. These fried dough bars are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Also like cinnamon sugar donuts, the fried dough is coated with cinnamon and sugar! I like the ridges (swells) created when the oil is added using star-shaped chips. Don’t forget to have some milk chocolate ganache for dipping. (Caramel makes a good sauce too. Caramel sauce is good too. Here’s how to make it in an air fryer.

Ingredients for French Fries

This recipe is divided into two parts: ingredients and dough.

Oil Vegetable : oil can be used for frying. Do not throw away excess oil. First, see how to clarify used cooking oil so it does not go to waste.

Topping : All you need is cinnamon and sugar to coat the fried dough.

Dough : For the dough, simply mix boiling water, sugar, oil, salt, and medium flour to make a warm dough.

Can I make churros without piping bags or chips?

Yes, you can! If you don’t have a piping bag, simply use two sealable plastic bags and cut the corners. In fact, you can cut triangular notches in the corners of the plastic bags for more texture, as well as star-shaped tips. Then, simply fill the dough with oil as directed. You won’t get the crispy ridges like you would with actual star chips, but the flavor will be the same!” .

How to Make Fried Tortillas in an Air Fryer

If you don’t want to use oil to fry your fries, you can easily get the same flavor with an air fryer. Make chocolate cake with an air fryer.

  • First, line a baking tray with parchment paper. Spray the parchment paper with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Next, fill the lined baking tray with dough.
  • Chill the tubular dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  • When ready to serve, spray the air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray (or line with parchment paper on machines that do not allow nonstick spray).
  • In batches, carefully transfer the brownies to the fryer basket, spacing them one at a time.
  • Fry in a 375 degree Fahrenheit oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

Churros are made by placing the dough in hot oil, frying it, then rolling it up and coating it with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.


  • 2 quarts vegetable oil


  • ½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Churro Batter

  • 1 cup (250 g) water
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup (125 g) all-purpose flour


  • In a large deep pot over medium-high heat, add 2 inches of vegetable oil. Heat oil to 365°F.
  • While oil is heating prepare the topping and batter.


  • On a shallow plate add cinnamon and sugar; whisk together to combine. Set aside.

Churro Batter

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat add water, sugar, oil, and salt. Mix well and bring to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and use a rubber spatula to mix in flour until the batter comes together with very few lumps remaining.
  • Because the batter is still very warm you will want to use two piping bags. To do that, take out the first piping bag, clip the end off and place in your tip so that it is securely resting in the bag. (I used an #827 tip.)
  • Add the batter to the second piping bag and clip a small amount off the tip of the bag. (Make sure you cut an opening that is slightly bigger than the size of the ¼ tip you will be using. If the opening is not large enough the pastry bag could interfere with how to batter comes out of the tip.)
  • Place the batter bag into the bag with the tip.
  • Carefully pipe a 5-inch strip of dough into the hot oil, using the scissors to snip off the dough at the end of the strip. Repeat 2-3 more times, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. (I would not recommend frying more than three at a time to avoid sticking together.) Monitor the temp of the oil; you want the oil to stay as close to 365°F as possible.
  • Fry until golden brown (about 3-4 minutes) turning occasionally. With a slotted spoon or metal tongs, remove from the oil and place on a paper towel to drain.
  • While still hot, roll the churro into the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Repeat with the remaining churros.
