How-To Make Churros Without a Deep Fryer

Updated on May 29, 2015

Most remember the childhood theme park treat known as the churro! Now you can make them in your own home, with, or without a deep fryer! Treat your family and friends to an unexpected dessert.

Tips For Deep-Frying With Oil!

  • Avoid cooking too many items in oil at once can reduce the temperature and create soggy churros.
  • Avoid causing the peanut oil used to smoke. Remove from heat momentarily if oil starts smoking and lower heat slightly.
  • Keep an eye on the temperature of the oil! Using a thermometer will ensure you cool your deserts like a professional!
  • Remember that you need to exercise caution with hot oil at all times. Also remember that rubbing ice cream on third-degree burns will not help. This will only waste ice cream.
  • Don't dump your oil down the drain. Wait for it to cool and dispose of it in the trash in some used sealed containers. Using a funnel to pour the oil for disposal is suggested, but not mandatory.

  • 375 mL water
  • 15 mL granulated sugar
  • 2 mL salt
  • 425 mL all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 5 mL baking powder
  • 1 L peanut/canola/safflower/vegetable oil
  • 125 mL granulated sugar
  • 1 mL cinnamon
  • 1 Oil Thermometer, See Bottom of Hub!


  1. In a wide, shallow dish mix 125mL granulated sugar with cinnamon. Set aside.
  2. In saucepan, bring water, sugar and salt to boil on medium heat.
  3. Stir in flour. Cook, stirring until the dough forms into a ball and a thin film forms on the bottom of the pan. This will take only about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Transfer to stand mixer with paddle attachment. (if you don't have this, beating with a whisk is fine)
  5. On medium speed beat in eggs, scraping down sides until stiff dough forms. Beat in baking powder.
  6. If you have a piping bag, it is perfect for the job! Use a star tip and make 6-inch lengths of dough onto a lightly floured surface. However if you do not have a piping bag (like me) you can simply roll out pieces of your dough onto a lightly floured surface.
  7. For this step, it would be easiest to use a deep fryer, but there is a substitute if you don't have one. In a wide shallow saucepan, heat 2-inches of oil until deep fryer thermometer reads 375°F.
  8. Fry churros until golden brown and puffed. With tongs, transfer them to paper towels to drain.
  9. While still hot, roll churros in sugar/cinnamon mixture.
