These simple, homemade churros are the best. Sweet, cinnamon fried dough with crispy edges and buttery soft insides all coated in a cinnamon sugar.
Water | Butter Sugar | Vanilla Extract Salt | Cinnamon All-Purpose Flour | Egg Cooking Oil
In a medium size saucepan combine the water, butter, sugar, vanilla extract, salt and cinnamon. Bring to a boil, the butter will be melted and the water will start to bubble along the edge of the pot.
Remove the pot from the heat and add the flour. Stir together until well combined. Then add the dough to the bowl of a stand mixer and mix in the beaten egg. Add dough to piping bag.
Squeeze out strips of dough into the hot oil 2 1/2-3 inches long. Use scissors to cut the dough. Fry for about 4 minutes until golden on all sides. Remove the fried churros to a baking sheet lined with a cooling wire rack.
Then dip into the cinnamon sugar topping while still warm. Serve with warm chocolate fudge sauce.
