Nutrition: per serving



  • 200 g Plain Flour
  • 120 g Butter Unsalted
  • 250 ml Water
  • 1 tsp Sugar Granulated
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 4-5 large Eggs
  • Vegetable Oil For frying

For the Glaze:

  • 250 g Icing Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  • Combine the water, butter, sugar, and salt in a medium-sized saucepan. Heat the saucepan over medium heat until the mixture reaches a boiling point.
  • Lower the heat and add all the flour at once. Stir vigorously using a wooden spoon until the mixture forms a smooth ball and separates from the sides of the pan. This process should take approximately 2-3 minutes.
  • Transfer the dough to a mixing bowl and allow it to cool slightly for 5 minutes.
  • Gradually add the eggs, one at a time, and beat well after each addition. The dough should become smooth and shiny.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large pot to a temperature of 175°C (350°F).
  • Fill a piping bag fitted with a large star tip with the dough.
  • Pipe rings of dough onto a sheet of parchment paper or directly into the hot oil. Each cruller should have a diameter of approximately 8-10cm (3-4 inches).
  • Fry the crullers in batches, flipping them once, until they turn golden brown and expand in size. This should take around 4-5 minutes per side.
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove the crullers from the oil, allowing excess oil to drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
  • In a separate bowl, prepare the glaze by whisking together the icing sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  • Dip each cooled cruller into the glaze, ensuring that any excess glaze drips off.
  • Place the glazed crullers on a wire rack and let them set for approximately 10 minutes.
  • Enjoy the French Crullers while they are fresh! Note that they are best consumed on the same day they are made for the optimal texture and taste.
