  • pot


  • vegetable or canola oil for frying
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Heat the oil in a large pot to between 350 and 375 degrees.
  • Meanwhile, make the dough by heating water, butter, vanilla, and salt in a large saucepan. Once the butter is completely melted and the mixture begins to simmer, remove from heat and stir in the flour with a wooden spoon.
  • Add in the eggs one at a time, stirring and mashing the dough together until the egg is fully incorporated.
  • Transfer the mixture to a large pastry bag fitted with a large star-shaped tip.
  • pipe the dough directly into the hot oil using scissors to trim to the desired length.
  • Cook until dough puffs and turns golden brown, turning halfway through so all sides evenly cook. This should just take 2 to 4 minutes total.
  • Carefully remove churro from oil using tongs and place on a paper towel-covered plate to drain, 1-2 minutes.
  • Once the churros have cooled enough to handle, put the sugar and cinnamon into a resealable plastic bag. Put the churros in one or two at a time and gently shake until churro is coated.
