Homemade Eggless Churros

These Homemade Eggless Churros are an amazing and delightful treat, consisting of strips of fried dough that are coated into a sugar and cinnamon mixture and served dipped in chocolate sauce or dulce de leche. Oh my… who could resist such a treat?

Churros are very popular in Spanish and Portuguese cuisine either for breakfast or as a snack throughout the day but have also become very popular worldwide and can be found on street stands in many places of the world.

Street churros can never compare though with homemade churros that can be served immediately as they are prepared, being able to enjoy their amazing texture right away. Churros are crispy on the outside while tender and airy inside, with a great flavor due to the sugar cinnamon coating. They are simply addictive and hardly can stop eating just a few.  I highly recommend making two batches as they are devoured in a matter of seconds.

How to make homemade eggless churros

The recipe is very easy to prepare and uses ingredients you basically have in the house.

Begin by whisking together sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl, setting it aside for the perfect finishing touch.

In a medium saucepan, combine water, olive oil, sugar, and salt, placing it over medium-low heat until it reaches a gentle boil. Once the mixture is hot and bubbling, remove it from the heat and stir in the fragrant vanilla extract. Add flour and baking powder to the mixture, stirring diligently until a smooth and well-combined dough forms.

How to fry the churros

To bring these churros to life, transfer the dough into a cloth pastry bag equipped with a star tip measuring ½ inch (1cm) in diameter. Feel free to use a 6B tip for this purpose.

In a separate medium pan, heat oil over medium-high heat until it reaches a sizzling 350°F (180°C). Carefully pipe strips of dough, approximately 4-5 inches (10-13cm) long, into the hot oil. Allow the churros to fry until they achieve a delectable golden brown color and a crisp texture, typically requiring around 4-5 minutes. If necessary, flip the churros during the frying process and separate them to prevent sticking. Be mindful not to pipe too many churros at once; it’s best to work in small batches of 4 or 5.

Transfer them to paper towels to drain any excess oil. Repeat the process with the remaining dough, ensuring that every churro receives the same level of crispy perfection.

How to serve churros

Roll each churro in the delightful sugar-cinnamon mixture, ensuring that it coats the entire surface. Arrange the coated churros on a captivating serving platter, creating an irresistible display of golden goodness.

To complete this culinary delight, prepare the chocolate dipping sauce. In a heatproof bowl, combine chocolate and cream, melting them together using the bain-marie method. Once the mixture is smooth and heavenly, transfer it to a separate serving dish, ready to enjoy alongside the churros.

It’s time to gather around and savor the fruits of your labor. Present the sugar-cinnamon coated churros with the luscious chocolate dipping sauce, inviting everyone to indulge in this delightful treat. Allow the crisp exterior and fluffy interior of the churros to meld harmoniously with the velvety richness of the chocolate, creating a taste sensation that will leave you craving more.

    So delicious!!

    My first foray into making churros (eggless or otherwise) and it turned out awesome. This was my first time trying churros, and I may not exactly know what they’re supposed to taste like, but these tasted awesome. And they were so easy to make. Will definitely be making these again.

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Ash, I am so glad you tried them out. My family and I love them too 🙂 Have a Happy New Year!

  2. Just made these and they turned out awesomeeee. I used a ziploc bag with the end cut out for a piping back but it went well! I did have 2 issues but they were me not the recipe.
    1. I had trouble piping straight lines. The first few were fine but then I would try to pipe it but the glob of dough would follow the bag. Any advice on how to stop it from doing that?
    2. This one was just on me, but I let the oil get too hot part-way through and the outside would burn before the inside cooked so I had to take it off the heat and let it cool down before continuing.

    1. Piping bag*

    2. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Hi Sevanna, a plain tip might help though. Also use a fork to cut the churros into the hot oil.

  3. Hi, i made this recipe but dough was too hard to squeeze out of piping bag. Is there anything i could’ve done to fix this issue? (Eg adding water to dough)?
    I ended up rolling them into long strips with hands. The texture was good, but would love to be able to try to fix the dough.

    1. Ella Marincus-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      That was the reason why I reccomended using a cloth pastry bag. Don’t know if you used one. It’s easier to use with thicker doughs. If possible I wouldn’t change the recipe too much. Depending on the flour used you may consider adding 1 or 2 tablespoons of water more.

  4. 3 stars
    For some reason when I mixed everything (liquid mixture with dry mixture) the viscosity of my dough was low. It would pour through my pastry bag. I did add a bit more flour to compensate but I should not have to do this if everything was done by the recipe.

    1. Ella - Home Cooking Adventure Author says:

      Did you weight carefully the ingredients? There is only 1 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of oil to 1 cup of flour. When you add the flour to the hot water mixture, it thickens and turns into a dough.

  5. Can I bake them? And at what temperature

    1. Ella - Home Cooking Adventure Author says:

      Never tried to bake them. But you can try baking them at 350F (180C) for about 10-12 minutes.

  6. What if we don’t have any baking powder? What can you use as a substitute?

    1. Ella - Home Cooking Adventure Author says:

      Use about 1/8 tsp baking soda. Should work well.
