Baked churros recipe –

Without a doubt, this recipe for roasted churros surprised me too much. That’s because, it’s delicious, dry and slightly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

It will be hard to resist not eating it all at once.

churro dough

Churro dough is a variation on choux dough, used to make the famous stuffed bombs, but a little denser to get more dough than air.

This oven version, or air fryer, is a little softer than the fried version. Therefore, one of the steps in the recipe is to let the dough rest for a while in the freezer before preparing it.

The result is incredible. Even when baked, you’ll have a slightly crispy outside and a soft filling. But, without a doubt, it is important for you to know that it is not crispy like the fried version, see?

You will love this roasted churros recipe. Super delicious and easy to make.

Also, I also suggest using a larger nozzle than the one used by us. As cute as it was, it certainly takes more work (on the other hand, it also makes more, lol…)

Churros in the air fryer or oven

Around here, we are certainly always looking for options that don’t need frying. Not that it is prohibited, but I really always prefer other ways of preparing it.

As I said before, the result is different from when we fry the churros. In fact, I believe this change occurs in any preparation you are going to do.

That said, here are my impressions of how to prepare them both in the conventional oven and in the oil-free fryer:

  • Air Fryer: Besides being the fastest way (I needed about 9 min), it’s also the way to make your dough more uniform. The result is very golden churros;
  • gas oven: Even though it needed a little more time (18 cm , more heat (I baked at the highest temperature), and it didn’t brown evenly, it’s the option that left the most crunchy dough.

Regardless of how you chose to prepare it, I have 2 very important tips. It is essential that you preheat the air fryer or oven before starting to bake. Also, it’s important to take the dough from the freezer straight to be baked, as the dough gets softer.

First of all, churros have to have sugar and cinnamon on the outside, right? As this dough is baked, it becomes more dry. So, for the powder mixture to stick well, we did this: we sprinkled some water on the already baked pasta. We put it in a pot, throw the sugar mixture and shake it for a few minutes.

To accompany we chose the classic dulce de leche, which is important to be softer. But my super tip here, to add a touch of flavor, is to include some lemon zest that will make your candy even tastier.

But without a doubt, it is also delicious accompanied by hazelnut cream or ganache.
