How to make it

  • Beat mixture with spoon until smooth and it comes away from the sides of the pan.
  • Add eggs, one at a time and beat well after adding each egg.
  • Stir in lemon extract and cool for 15 minutes.
  • Put half the dough in a large pastry bag with a large star tip.

  • When golden brown, remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and serve warm.

    My little boy loves churros. I'm not much of a baker, but he won't know it. I'll give these a try.

    Thanks for the recipe! I haven't had a churro in years and to my dismay couldn't find a restaurant that had them either. Thanks to you I can now have them anytime I want.

    Churros are fantastic but never had homemade so I am looking forward to trying my hand at these babies!
    BTW- did you recognize it as being "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" from the quote or from his photo? Just curious...
