Traditional Stuffed Churros

Prep time: 30 min Cook time: 20 min

Servings: 20 churros


  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup salted butter
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • Oil for frying (Peanut Oil is the very best)
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg (room temperature)
  • Cinnamon sugar: 1 tbsp cinnamon & 4 tbsp white sugar (for dusting)
  • Caramel, for filling



  • Start by heating water, butter, sugar, and salt in a saucepan on medium heat until it simmers.
  • Remove from heat and add flour to the water mixture.
  • Stir with a rubber spatula until it forms a smooth ball of dough with no lumps.
  • Let the dough rest at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes in a large mixing bowl.
  • Prep the fry oil with 2-3 inches of oil in a deep, heavy pot (cast iron is the very best). Heat until it has a slight shimmer, which about 360 F (180 C.)
  • Mix the cinnamon and remaining white sugar in a bowl and set aside.
  • Add egg and vanilla to the dough and mix with an electric hand beater or a stand mixer until the dough becomes smooth and sticky.
  • Transfer the dough to a Churro Maker with the star tip.
  • Carefully press the mixture of the churro about 4 inches long into hot oil by cutting the end with scissors or with a knife.
  • Fry until golden. This will take about 2 minutes on each side. Flip with tongs.
  • Transfer the churros to a paper towel and dust with cinnamon sugar.
  • Warm caramel on low heat with cream until thin and warm for filling.
  • Fill the clean churro maker or a piping bag with thin caramel and the thin filling tip.
  • Using a wooden skewer or kitchen thermometer press a hole through the churro.
  • Fill the churro by pressing the tip into the space just made with warm caramel mixture.
  • Serve warm with chocolate dip on the side & enjoy!


** Tips on the fry oil:

  • You will know it is just right when the outside becomes slightly crispy quickly. This will help the churro maintain its shape.
  • The temperature drops when dough is added, allow some time for the oil to heat again between frying groups.


Rich Chocolate Dip

Prep time: 15 min Cook time: 2 min


  • 1 12 oz bag dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream


Stir chocolate chips and vanilla in a heavy saucepan on low heat with a wooden spoon until melted. Ensure not to overcook. Whisk in heavy whipping cream until completely smooth. Serve with churros in a dipping bowl & enjoy!
