Eggless Churros with dark chocolate dip

Churros are perfect finger food for tea time , these churros are eggless. Grab, dip , drench them in dark chocolate sauce/dip and devour !!!  



Yield : about a dozen churros


  • 1/2 Cup All purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Cup boiling water
  • 1/4 Cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon / cinnamon powder
  • vegetable Oil for deep frying
  • a piping bag and star nozzle 


1. In a mixing bowl, add all purpose flour, baking powder, salt and mix together
2. Add vegetable oil to the flour and using finger tips gently mix in the oil in to the flour until it resembles coarse crumbles
3. Add vanilla extract to the flour and mix
4. Make a well in the center of the flour and pour half of the boiling water. Using a spatula mix everything until it forms a smooth paste without lumps
5. Now add the remaining boiling water to the flour and mix with spatula. This flour mixture will be smooth and soft
6. Let the mixture cool for 10 minutes
7. Meanwhile heat the oil for deep frying
8. In a large plate, mix together granulated white sugar and cinnamon
9. Now we are ready to pipe churros. Transfer the mixture to the piping bag fitted with star nozzle
10. When the oil is hot , turn down the heat to medium. Now start squeezing 3 inch long strips of batter into hot oil. I used a kitchen scissor to cut down the strips from the piping bag. You can directly squeeze strips also into oil
6. Fry on medium heat for 4 to 5 min until it turns golden brown, flipping side half way through
7. When they are done, remove from oil and place it on a plate lined with paper towel
8. Roll the warm churros into the cinnamon sugar mixture and coat all sides
9. Serve warm with chocolate dip

For the dark chocolate dip 

  • 1/2 Cup grated dark chocolate
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh cream/ milk


1. Make the chocolate dip: In a small microwave safe bowl add 1/2 cup of grated dark chocolate. mix 3 tablespoon of fresh cream and microwave in 30 seconds interval until the chocolate melts and the mixture turns smooth. Set aside, let it cool
