Just like the ones they make at the stands.


  1. Prepare to fry churros by heating the oil in a pan (1- 1 1/2") to 360°F To make churro dough, heat water, margarine, and salt to rolling boil in 3 quart saucepan; stir in flour.
  2. Stir vigorously over low heat until mixture forms a ball (about 1 min); remove from heat.
  3. Beat eggs all at once; continue beating until smooth and add to saucepan while stirring mixture.
  4. Spoon mixture into a cake decorator tube with a large star tip.
  5. Squeeze 4" strips of dough into hot oil.
  6. Fry 3 or 4 strips at a time until golden brown, turning once every 2 minutes on each side.
  7. Drain on paper towels.
  8. Mix sugar and cinnamon; roll churros in sugar or dump it on the pile.

Delicious! They were every bit as good as the churros from my favorite restaurant! I did follow reviewers' suggestions and use 2 eggs in the dough. I also recommend serving the churros warm with warm chocolate syrup on the side for dipping. Thanks for the recipe!

I thought they were pretty good. But I think they came out a little eggy tasting. I'm not sure if I did something wrong or not.
