Disney Park Recipe: Churros

Location: Numerous locations

Source: Disney Parks Blog


  • 1 cup of water

  • 3 eggs

  • 4 oz butter

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 1/4 cups flour

  • Cinnamon/Sugar Mix

  • 1 1/2 cup oil


  1. Prepare three plates. One plate with paper towel, one with cinnamon/sugar mix and one with nothing. Set them aside.

  2. In a medium saucepot over medium heat, combine the water, butter, salt, and cinnamon. Bring to a rolling boil.

  3. Reduce the heat to low and add the flour. Stir very quickly. Stir until the dough forms a ball.

  4. Remove the saucepot from the heat and set aside. Allow to cool down for 5-7 minutes. It won’t be cold by that point. It will just be cooler. I like to place mine in a stand mixer and turn the paddle on low. It will allow the steam to escape the dough.

  5. Add the eggs one at a time, mix well between each egg. Do not worry if the dough pulls apart between additions. Just keep mixing and the dough will come back together. I promise you.

  6. Place the mixture in a piping bag with a large tip.

  7. In a skillet, heat 1 1/2 cups of oil. I actually ended up using twice that amount.

  8. Squeeze a 1-inch strip of dough into the oil. I used scissors to cut the dough from the piping bag. Be careful to not let it splash.

  9. Fry until golden brown on all sides. This took about 6 minutes per churro.

  10. Drain the churros on the plate with the paper towel.

  11. Once drained, roll the churro in the cinnamon/sugar plate.

  12. Place on the third plate to serve.

Note: Serve with melted chocolate sauce for an authentic Disney Parks snack.
