A heather alternative to the traditional churro that is fried. It still tastes just as great, but makes you feel a little less guilty.
These are by no means the traditional way to make churros, but these are perfect for when you feel a little lazy. You won’t need to pull out the pan and and stand over it while your churros fry. This recipe is also much quicker to batch make so that you’ve got lots of churros to share.
- 1 cup water
- 1 tbsp white sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 400° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a saucepan on medium heat, add together the water, sugar, salt, and vegetable oil. Bring it to a boil, then take it off the heat and mix in the flour mixture until a dough ball forms.
- Fill a piping bag fitted with a star shaped tip with the dough and pipe your churros on to the prepared baking sheet in your desired shape.
- On a plate, mix together the cinnamon and sugar. Dip the freshly mad churros into the cinnamon sugar and serve. They also pair well with some melted chocolate.
