churro donuts

I made these churro doughnuts along with the galaxy and oreo doughnuts for my clubs donut day. They were really quick to make and closely resembled a churro dipped in chocolate. These are a great alternative to fried churros since they are baked in a doughnut pan. I would highly recommend making the chocolate sauce thicker by adding less milk so it coats onto the donut better.

What you need: Makes 12-14 doughnuts


  • 1/2 cup (125 g) butter, melted

  • 1/3 cup sugar 85 g

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 3 eggs

  • a pinch of salt

  • 1 tsp rum optional

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • a pinch of nutmeg

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 250 g

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 1/3 cup milk


  • 1/4 cup butter melted, 57 g

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon


  • 3 tsp corn starch

  • 1 1/4 cup milk

  • 50 g chocolate

  • sugar to taste

What to do:

  1. Beat butter until foamy. Gradually add sugar and vanilla extract and beat to make a smooth mixture. Then add the eggs one at a time with a pinch of salt and rum.

  2. Mix baking powder with the sieved flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add flour mixture alternately with the milk to the creamed mixture. Use sufficient milk to produce a semi-liquid dough which runs off the spoon (like waffle or pancake dough).

  3. Spoon the batter into non-stick doughnut baking tin. Place in the preheated 350 F (175 C) oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into donut comes out clean. Take out of the oven and allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before taking out onto a wire rack to cool completely.*

  4. TOPPING: In a small bowl, melt 1/4 cup butter. In another small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon. Brush each doughnut with butter and sprinkle with (or roll in) sugar-cinnamon mixture.

  5. CHOCOLATE SAUCE: *Combine corn starch with some milk. In a saucepan, heat milk and chocolate until chocolate is melted. Add cornflour mixture gradually, cooking over a low heat. Stir constantly until the mixture thickens. Sweeten to taste.

*I would recommend making a thicker chocolate sauce because this one was a bit runny and didn't stick very well to the donuts. I would add less milk and more chocolate
