Crispy hot Churros

How about some warm, crispy Churros coated in sugar and dipped in spread, just like at the carnival? 🎡🤤! Making the batter, some folks just use flour and water, but I prefer this version—it’s lighter and doesn’t splatter while cooking 😅🫣😂. With this recipe, you’ll get about fifteen churros 👇

Crispy hot Churros


  • The batter:
  • 180 ml water
  • 70 ml skimmed milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 200 grams flour
  • 3 eggs (about 130 grams)
  • 50 grams butter
  • Fryer oil, sugar for coating, and spread.


  1. In a saucepan, pour water, milk, butter, salt, and sugar. Bring it all to a boil and off the heat, add the flour all at once.
  2. Use a wooden spoon to mix and put it back on medium heat. Stir for about 2 minutes to dry the dough, forming a thin film at the bottom of the saucepan.
  3. Transfer the dough to a bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
  4. Mix for several minutes until there's no more steam coming off the dough (you can also mix with a wooden spoon).
  5. Gradually pour in the beaten eggs until you have a smooth and homogeneous dough. Using a spatula, transfer the dough to a piping bag fitted with a star-shaped nozzle.
  6. Heat the oil; if you have a kitchen thermometer, it should be at 180 degrees Celsius.
  7. Fry the churros on both sides until golden brown, then drain them on paper towels.
  8. Coat them with sugar and enjoy them while still warm and crispy, dipped in spread. Bon appétit!
