Hi Bold Bakers!
One of my all time FAVORITE desserts are churros. Whether they’re served with a classic dusting of cinnamon sugar, or dipped in chocolate sauce, very little compares or feels more nostalgic to me than eating a good churro. You’ve seen me previously make a Churro Mug Cake and some Churro Waffles, and even how to make Homemade Baked Churros, so I think it’s safe to say that I REALLY like churros.
Another one of my most popular recipes are donuts. If you’ve never tried to make them at home, I cannot recommend it enough. I love how versatile they can be; frosted and topped all different ways, and sometime even filled with scrumptious goodies!
Previously, I’ve made delicious Chocolate Baked Donuts but now I like the idea of taking two classic desserts like my churros and homemade donuts and re-imagine them together. So, I can’t wait for you to try my one of the most delicious combinations yet – Churro Donuts!
These little guys start with a plain donut base and my DIY Donut Tin. No special cooking equipment is required to make these bad boys! These donuts are going to be baked, with means no messy oil. Then, while they’re still warm, I brush them with butter and generously toss them in cinnamon sugar to make some delicious Churro Donuts!
I don’t stop there, as no self-respecting churro is complete with out a good dip in some rich chocolate sauce. You will not BELIEVE how simple these are to make, especially with how much flavor they pack! Enjoy!
- 1/2 cup (4oz/120g) butter, melted and cooled
- 1/3 cup (2 1/2oz/75g) sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 eggs
- a pinch of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 cups (10oz/300g) all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 cup ( 2oz/60g) butter melted
- 1/2 cup (4oz/120g) sugar
- 1/2 cup (3oz/90g) chocolate chopped
- 2 tablespoons cream
In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and melted cooled butter.
Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet until evenly combined with no lumps leaving you with smooth pourable batter.
Spoon or pipe the batter into your DIY doughnut tin. Place in a preheated 350oF (175oC) oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until lightly golden.
Remove from the oven and cool for about 5 minutes before turing out onto a wire rack and removing the tin foil.
While the donuts are cooling make the topping - In a small bowl, melt 1/4 cup butter. In another small bowl mix together the sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
Next make the chocolate ganache - Melt the chocolate in a microwave or over a bain marie. Stir in the cream until you have a shiny thick ganache.
To assemble your donuts - Brush each cooled donut with the melted butter then place in the bowl of cinnamon sugar, coating each donut completely on all sides.
Once all of your donuts have been coated in cinnamon sugar dip the top half in the chocolate ganache making sure to generously coat with chocolate. Enjoy!
