Nutrition: per serving



  • 250 g Plain Flour
  • 250 ml Water
  • 50 g Unsalted Butter
  • 2 tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Sunflower Oil for frying
  • 50 g Caster Sugar for coating
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon for coating


  • In a saucepan, combine the water, butter, sugar, salt, and vanilla extract. Bring to a gentle boil over medium heat.
  • Remove from heat and add the plain flour all at once. Stir vigorously until the mixture forms a smooth dough that pulls away from the sides of the pan.
  • Transfer the dough to a piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle.
  • Heat sunflower oil in a deep frying pan or pot over medium-high heat until it reaches 180°C (use a cooking thermometer for accuracy).
  • Pipe strips of dough directly into the hot oil, using scissors to cut them to your desired length. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan.
  • Fry the churros until golden brown and crispy, about 4-5 minutes, turning occasionally for even cooking.
  • Remove the churros from the oil using a slotted spoon and drain on a plate lined with kitchen paper to remove excess oil.
  • In a shallow bowl, mix together the caster sugar and ground cinnamon for coating.
  • While the churros are still warm, roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture until evenly coated.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy your delicious homemade churros!
