Churros Dough:

1 cup water
2 1/2 Tbs white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbs vegetable oil
1 cup self-raising flour
2L oil for frying

Cinnamon Sugar:

1/2 cup white sugar, or to taste
1 tsp ground cinnamon


In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine water, sugar, salt and vegetable oil.

Bring to a boil and remove from heat.

Stir in flour until mixture forms a ball of dough.

Place dough in a piping bag and pipe out a long churro.

Heat oil for frying in deep-fryer or deep saucepan to 190 C.

You can test this by placing a wooden chopstick or skewer into the oil and if it bubbles around the chopstick the oil is ready.

Use a deep frying spatula (or similar) to carefully place churros in the oil.

Fry until golden and drain on paper towels.

Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon.

Roll drained churros in cinnamon and sugar mixture.

If you like, serve with a pot of melted chocolate for dipping.
