One of the most popular recipes of the Spanish-speaking countries that they prefer mainly for their breakfast is the churros, which look like our donuts. Here I suggest the classic Mexican churros which I accompany with a very nice caramel sauce, instead of the classic chocolate sauce or icing with cinnamon that they are usually served.


For the churros:

  • 250 ml of water
  • 50 gr. butter
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 150 gr. flour
  • A little salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. of liquid vanilla

For the caramel sauce:

  • 230 gr. Brown sugar
  • 120 gr. butter at room temperature
  • 230 gr. cream 35% fat
  • 1 pinch of salt

For the serving:

  • 1 tbsp. grated cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp. granulated sugar


  1. Put water, butter, sugar, salt and vanilla in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and add the sifted flour, mix with a wooden spatula for 2 minutes until it becomes a dough.
  2. Remove from the heat and put the dough in the mixer bucket and beat with the whisk for 2 minutes until the mixture cools down a bit.
  3. Add the eggs one by one, stirring constantly until the eggs are incorporated into our dough.
  4. Put the mixture in a pastry bag with a nose with an asterisk.
  5. Put plenty of corn oil in your pan or pot and fry

There are 2 ways of frying:

With the pastry bag, cut the churros into long narrow strips directly in the pot or grease a wrapping paper, cut them up there and then dip the wrapping paper in the oil, shake them and they are easily removed.

For the caramel sauce:

  1. Put the cream in a saucepan to heat (not to boil).
  2. In a pan over medium to high heat, put the sugar in the center and let it melt slowly without stirring.
  3. Stir with a wooden spoon when it starts to turn golden, cut the butter into small pieces and add it to the pan, stirring with a whisk.
  4. When the butter has melted, slowly add the warm cream and remove from the heat.
  5. Leave to cool a bit and serve.

For the serving:

Mix in a bowl and place the churros in there.
