- 1 cup water
- 2 1/2 teaspoons white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 quarts oil for frying
- 1/2 cup white sugar, or to taste
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Step 1: Combine water, 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, salt, and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Bring a boil and remove from the heat. Stir in flour, stirring until the mixture forms a ball.
Step 2: Heat oil for frying in a deep fryer or deep pot to 375 degrees F.
Step 3: Transfer the dough to a sturdy pastry bag fitted with a medium star tip. Carefully pipe a few 5- to 6-inch strips of dough into the hot oil; work in batches so you don’t crowd the fryer. Cook until golden; use a spider or slotted spoon to transfer churros to paper towels to drain.
Step 4: Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon. Roll drained churros in cinnamon and sugar mixture. Serve while warm.
