Materials Needed

To make a churro, you will need:
-Churros dough
-Oil for frying
-Baking powder
-Powdered sugar for dustingBefore you begin, make the churro dough. In a bowl, combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Stir in 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of sugar. Mix until well combined. Gradually add enough water to make a soft, but not sticky, dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes.

Next, heat up oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add churros dough to the skillet and cook for 3-5 minutes per side, or until golden brown.

While the churros are cooking, mix together 1/2 cup of sugar with 2 cups of water in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low and add 1 teaspoon of baking powder. Simmer for 5 minutes, or until thickened. Remove from heat and let cool slightly before using.

Once the churros are done frying, dust them with powdered sugar and serve warm!
