  • Pour water into a medium sauce pan. Add salt. Bring the water to a boil and add the flour.
  • With a wooden spatula, mix vigorously until well combined and you don’t see any lumps (the dough should be very soft & sticky. You should mix this for about 5 minutes or until smooth).
  • Let the churro dough cool down until you can work with it (don’t cool completely). Transfer into a piping bag fitted with a star tip.
  • Pipe onto a sheet of baking paper or a silicone mat into candy cane shapes (3-inch long/7.5cm).
  • Heat up the oil in a large skillet/frying pan. Meanwhile: Prepare the gingerbread flavoured sugar by mixing gingerbread spice with sugar and set aside.
  • When the oil is hot enough, drop the churros in. Fry them until they have nice golden brown color and are done inside.
  • Transfer them onto a sheet of paper kitchen towel to get rid of the excess oil and coat each one in gingerbread sugar.
  • Best served warm with a cup of thick hot chocolate.


  • The churro dough should be soft and sticky.
  • The churro dough will be soft and sticky but it gets harder when it’s cold. The softer the dough the easier to pipe it out so I don’t recommend waiting until it gets completely cold.
  • Gingerbread spice mix can be substituted with ground cinnamon, ginger and cloves.
