Churro Donuts

I was surprised that these were not as popular as the Pumpkin donuts with my kids,  I have come to the conclusion that they are crazy... My husband and I sure liked them.  They reminded me of summer nights at an amusement park or the fair hanging out with friends and loving the sugar high... The best thing about these tasty treats is they are not fried, so they aren't quite so bad for you.

*Updated* After making this recipe several more times I had more consistent results doubling the flour for the recipe.  So instead of 1 cup flour I have adjusted the recipe to have 2 cups.

Churro Donuts

1 cup water
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups all purpose flour

1/4 cup butter melted
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon

I use a Sunbeam Donut Maker.  You can also use a donut pan and bake the batter in the oven, or fry in hot oil (omit the baking soda).

Preheat the donut maker or oven.  In a mixing bowl combine water, brown sugar, 1/3 cup melted butter, eggs, and vanilla and mix until smooth.  In a separate bowl combine the flour soda and salt.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until all the flour is incorporated.


Place a corner of a gallon zip top bag into a glass and fold over the edges.  With a large spoon fill with about half of the batter. 


Remove from the glass and clip the top so that batter doesn't ooze out as you pipe the batter into the donut molds.


Spray the pan once with non-stick cooking spray.  Cut the corner off of the bag and pipe the batter into each of the molds until it is just above the mold ridge.  Bake until the green light turns on, and then let continue cooking another full cycle until the green light turns on again.  It takes longer than  other donuts to cook.  So check to make sure they are not doughy in the middle.


Melt the remaining butter and place in a bowl large enough to coat the donuts, and combine the cinnamon and sugar in another small bowl.  As the donuts finish cooking remove to a plate and pipe more batter into the molds.  One at a time dip each side of a cooked donut in melted butter then in the bowl with cinnamon sugar and coat on each side.



Repeat until all the batter is used.  Makes about 20 small donuts.  Enjoy!
