Spanish Street Churros Recipe


Churro Batter:
½ cup unsalted butter
¼ tsp salt
1 cup white flour
3 eggs
1/2 – 1 cup water
Oil for frying

½ cup sugar
1/8 cup cinnamon

Chocolate Sauce:
½ cup chocolate chips
½ cup cream
1 Tbsp maple syrup

  1. To make your chocolate sauce place the chocolate, cream and syrup in a saucepan on very low. Heat until melted through. Remove from heat immediately.
  2. For the churros, mix sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Heat the butter in a saucepan until boiling. Add salt and stir. Stir in flour and slowly add the water until you have a soft doughy ball (you may not need the entire cup so start with less and add more as needed). Transfer to a bowl and add your 3 eggs and mix.  Heat your oil at medium high. Transfer batter into a piping bag or gun with a star tip. Pipe into the oil about a 6 inch long piece of dough. Use a knife to scrape the batter from the gun each time. Fry for about 1 minute on each side or until golden brown and crispy. Take them out one at a time and roll in the sugar mixture.
  3. Dip in the chocolate and eat immediately! They are best fresh! This is no frozen Disneyland churro. Melt in your mouth. And that chocolate sauce just puts it over the top!
