Churros (Mexican Dessert)

Again, this recipe is from a class we took with Chef Paul Cecconi. They are so darn yummy, you better buy elastic waisted pants, ‘cuz you will make them over and over and……over again!


  • 1 cup water
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. white sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 cup flour
  • Oil for deep fryer

In a small saucepan on medium heat, combine water, sugar, salt and oil and bring to a boil then remove from the heat.

Stir the flour in vigorously until it forms a ball. Switch arms so you don’t get tiredĀ stirringĀ this.

Place batter in a piping bag with a star tip and pipe into 375 degree oil and fry until golden.

After fried, toss in the cinnamon sugar (follows).


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon


Didn’t I tell you these were yummy? Besides, look at the money you saved by not having to fly to Mexico. Darn, I’m good!
