Soy Churros with Cinnamon Sugar


I had a craving for churros this morning after a quick trip to Costco and saw the yummilicious churros they had. I should have just bought one and enjoyed it there but the line was too long I decided to go back home and make my own.  I used soy flour and added cinnamon to the sugar topping.  Nope. I didn’t make chocolate for the dip.  Just enjoyed the cinnamon churros with my espresso….hmmmm.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup soy flour (or all purpose flour to make regular churros)
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • oil for frying
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tbs cinnamon powder



  1. In a saucepan, boil water, butter and salt into a rolling boil. Add flour and stir until it forms a ball.
  2. Remove from heat.  Add eggs and continue stirring until well mixed.
  3. Heat oil to 360F.  Using a pastry bag with 1/2 inch opening (use whatever end you want),pipe dough/batter into the oil, about 4 inches long.  Cook until brown on both sides, approx 2 minutes.  Drain on paper towels.
  4. Mix sugar and cinnamon in a plate.  Roll each churros in sugar mixture.
  5. Serve with coffee or tea.

I love churros. Nice job on making this a little more healthier with the soy flour. I haven’t tried using soy flour yet. I think I should.

Ever since I had the most amazing churros and chocolate sauce at the Peninsula Hotel in Makati City, I have been craving them. Your churros look even better and with that awesome sugar coating, no chocolate is needed! Thanks for the recipe.

These are so heavenly… I love churros, the choco dips and even fruit jams, if you have in your fridge, to dip in.
