  • 250 g all-purpose flour (bread flour can also be used)
  • 250 g water
  • 1 teaspoon salt (approximately 8 grams)
  • Sugar for sprinkling
  • Mild olive oil for frying or sunflower oil
  • Kitchen paper towels
  • Churrera (a churro maker) – recommended for best results
  • Chocolate Mix by Lacasa or Paladin

Churro Dough Preparation:

  1. Place the flour in a large bowl.
  2. In a saucepan, heat water with salt until it starts to boil.
  3. Pour the boiling water over the flour all at once. Using a wooden spoon, integrate the flour with water, resulting in a sticky and fairly compact dough.
  4. Transfer this dough into a churrera or a pastry bag fitted with a star-shaped nozzle. This step is crucial for successful churros and to avoid issues during frying. The churrera compresses the dough, eliminating air, preventing the churros from splattering in the oil. If you have a churro maker, fill it with the dough – the best option.
  5. Pipe the raw dough onto a kitchen cloth on the countertop to cool the dough, preventing them from opening or bursting during frying.
  6. Heat a pan with abundant mild olive oil or sunflower oil.
Frying and Presentation of Homemade Churros:
  1. Once the oil is hot, carefully fry the portions of dough. Measure the oil temperature ideally between 195º and 200º C for churros.
  2. Cook over medium heat to avoid undercooking the churros. If using a pastry bag, be cautious as churros may splatter. With a churrera, this issue is minimized.
  3. Once fried, transfer the churros to a tray lined with kitchen paper towels to absorb excess oil.
  4. Serve the churros sprinkled with granulated sugar or powdered sugar.
