Baked Churros are usually deep fried, but our baked option helps cut down the fat while keeping the flavor.
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 425°F. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon baking mat and set aside.
- In a large microwave safe bowl, stir together 1 cup water, brown sugar and salt. Add the stick of butter and microwave with medium-high heat until the butter is melted and mixture starts to bubble on the edges of the bowl.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine eggs and vanilla. Whip together with whisk or fork and set aside.
- Carefully, remove from the microwave and add flour, stirring constantly. The mixture will clump and pull away from the sides of the bowl. Mix until well combined.
- Next, add the egg mixture to the dough. Stir until the eggs are incorporated into the dough.
- Transfer dough to a piping bag fitted with Wilton decorator tip #32 or similar. You could also pipe the dough from a zip-top bag with a corner snipped off. They will not have the grooves but they will still be equally delicious!
- Pipe dough onto the pan in long thin lines leaving about 2-inches of space between each row of churros for spreading.
- Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until slightly puffed. Then turn oven to broiler setting and watch carefully as churros toast and turn deep golden brown. These will burn quickly so do not walk away!
- While the churros are in the oven, combine sugar and cinnamon and pour into a shaker or into a small bowl; set aside.
- Remove from oven and while the oils are still present, immediately sprinkle the churros with sugar. Transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool slightly.
- Serve alone or with creme anglaise and chipotle chocolate dipping sauces.
