Easy-to-make, and even easier-to-eat cinnamon and sugar churro bites.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Oil for frying (I used Canola)
For the coating
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Heat 2 inches of oil in a large pot over medium heat until oil reaches 365 degrees. Add water, salt and butter to a medium sized saucepan. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted. Remove from heat. 
  2. Add the flour and 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, stirring until no lumps remain.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring well after each addition. The dough should look smooth and silky. 
  4. Once the mixture is cool enough to handle, roll into 1 1/2 inch balls. Fry 4-5 balls at a time, removing with a wire strainer once they are golden-brown. 
  5. Allow the churro bites to drain on a wire cookie rack, until cool enough to handle, but still warm/hot. 
  6. Now, mix the remaining sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
  7.  Roll the churro bites in the cinnamon-sugar mixture until well coated. Best when eaten warm.
