Cinnamon Churros with Chocolate Sauce



  • 1/4 cup caster / superfine sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp vegetable, canola or olive oil
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 cups+ vegetable or canola oil, for frying


  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate or semi sweet chocolate chips (Note 2)

Cinnamon sugar coating:

  • Combine sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl, set aside.


  • Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  • Add oil and water and mix until just combined - it should be a thick, gummy batter.


  • Transfer dough into a piping bag with a 8mm / 1/3" star tip nozzle.
  • Set aside while oil heats.
  • Heat 5cm / 2" oil over medium high in a small pot, until it takes 20 seconds for a small cube of bread to turn golden.
  • Pipe 15cm / 6" lengths of dough into the oil, snipping with scissors (snip close to oil surface to avoid splash).
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden and crisp, rolling occasionally.
  • Remove onto paper towel lined plate to drain.
  • Then roll in sugar.
  • Serve hot with Chocolate Sauce



  • Place in a heatproof bowl and microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring in between, until smooth.
  • Set aside for 5 minutes to cool and thicken slightly.
