Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 tbsp butter cubed
- 2 tsp granulated sugar
- 1/4 tsp + 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- canola oil for frying
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar to start - I kept adding more sugar as the mixture moistened from the heat
- 3 tsp ground cinnamon
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup granulated sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
Heat 1-1/2 inches of oil in a large pot over medium heat to 360 degrees (Watch this closely - through the entire cooking process - important to maintain your temperature).
In a separate medium saucepan combine milk, water, butter, 2 tsp sugar, and salt and bring mixture just to a boil.
Once boiling, remove from heat and immediately stir in vanilla and flour.
Stir together with spatula & smooth any lumps. Stir until mixture comes together and is smooth. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a large open star tip
Pipe 2-4 inches of dough out into oil
Cut dough & to allow dough to drop into oil
I recommend working in small batches as the dough likes to travel in the oil & come together. Allow churros to fry until golden brown - remove with a wire strainer
Drain on a wire rack for a couple minutes.
Toss warm, drained churros into sugar mixture to evenly coat.
Serve warm with dipping sauce if desired.
