Today, we invite you to embark on a delightful journey into your own kitchen, where we'll guide you through the art of making churros at home – in the oven.

While traditional churros are deep-fried, we're here to introduce you to a game-changing method – oven-baked churros. This not only simplifies the process but also ensures a healthier alternative without compromising on the deliciousness we all crave.


Why Oven-Baked Churros?

Baking churros in the oven has numerous advantages:

  • It eliminates the need for large amounts of oil, making the process more approachable and reducing the mess associated with deep-frying.
  • It offers a healthier alternative, appealing to those who want to enjoy the taste of churros without the excess oil.
  • Baking allows for a more controlled and even cooking process, ensuring each churro achieves golden-brown perfection.


Ingredients You'll Need:

Before we delve into the step-by-step process, gather these simple ingredients:
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon sugar for coating


Step-by-Step Guide:

1. Prepare the Dough - In a saucepan, bring water, butter, and salt to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in the flour until a smooth dough forms.

2. Add Eggs - Let the dough cool slightly, then add eggs one at a time, mixing thoroughly. Incorporate vanilla extract for flavor.

3. Transfer and Pipe - Transfer the dough to a piping bag and pipe strips onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.

4. Bake to Perfection - Bake in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) until the churros are golden brown and crisp.

5. Coat in Cinnamon Sugar - While still warm, roll the baked churros in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar for that classic churro finish.
