how to make churros

My kids never get to taste churros their entire life.

Yes, blame the mother.

I made churros last week and they were surprised that it was something sweet and exciting to eat.

All along, my two big girls thought  churros was a chicken dish.


Blame me, blame me please… Churros is never my favorite and I rarely buy any.  I came across the recipe a few weeks ago and I thought it’s easy to make so I tried to make one the other day.

The moment I put it on the table I suddenly felt a strong wind and blew all the churros straight to my children’s mouth and there was barely left for Tatay to taste.

Instant favorite!

Today, before they left for school they asked if I can make churros again for meryenda.  

I said, why not.

It was fun and easy to make so I thought I share how to make churros with everyone.

Are you ready?

Here yah go!


Churros Recipe


1 cup water
1/2 cup margarine or butter
1/8 teaspoon salt

4 small/medium or 3 large/extra large eggs
1/4 cup sugar

Heat water, salt and butter to a rolling boil in a sauce pan. Add flour all at once and stir vigorously over low heat until the mixture forms a ball (about 1 minute). Remove from heat. Beat eggs all at once until smooth and then add to saucepan stirring the mixture until smooth and shiny.

It should look like this:
