Ingredients

  • vegetable oil
  • 4  Tablespoons  sugar
  • 2  Teaspoons  ground cinnamon
  • 3 1/4  Cups  Original Bisquick® mix
  • 1  Cup  hot water

Directions

In a 12-cup saucepan, heat oil (2 to 3 inches) over medium-high heat until thermometer inserted in oil reads 375 degrees. 

In small bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of the sugar and the cinnamon; set aside. In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, hot water, and remaining 1 tablespoon sugar with spatula until dough forms.

Spoon dough into pastry bag fitted with 1/4-inch star tip. Pipe 5-inch strips of dough into hot oil. If necessary, cut dough with knife or scissors between each churro. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, turning frequently, until golden brown. Carefully remove from oil; drain on paper towels.

Immediately sprinkle churros generously with sugar-cinnamon mixture. Serve warm.

Churro Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Churro Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
