  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup flour Sensi used pastry flour but all other recipes I've seen use all-purpose
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon not typical in Spanish churros but Sensi used it and it was delicious!
  • Olive oil for frying you can substitute vegetable oil if you must, but everyone in Andalusia fries with olive oil


  • Sift the flour and stir in the baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  • Bring the water to a boil, then take off of the heat and whisk in the dry ingredients.
  • Stir for two-three minutes until the dough is consistent and lump free (you could also beat the mixture with an electric mixer for one minute on a medium speed)
  • Let the dough rest and cool for about 5 minutes
  • Fill a churrera (churro maker) or a pastry sleeve with a star tip with the churro dough
  • Heat the oil to a medium heat and when it's hot enough pipe the dough in a circular motion.
  • Separate the spirals so that they don't stick and flip the spiral if necessary
  • When they are golden on the outside take out and let rest on paper towels
  • Repeat the process until all the churros have been made
  • Cut the spirals into sticks of churros and serve with hot chocolate or sprinkle with sugar
