Naked Churros with Dulce de Leche


(from ileanaespinoza’s recipe box)


Categories: dessert, fried, sweet


  • 1 cup Water
  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of Sweetened Condensed milk
  • Oil for frying


  1. Pour the condensed milk into a heavy bottomed sauce pan and cook until it reaches a cream color. Be sure to stir it a few times during the process. If it starts bubbling too much, lower the temperature. About 20 minutes. Then set aside on a pretty bowl. Be careful, it’ll be super hot.

  2. On a separate sauce pan, boil the water, butter and salt.

  3. Retire from heat, add the flour mixing well.

  4. Add the eggs one by one, mixing well before adding the next one. Mix well until you get a yellow, very sticky slightly shiny dough.

  5. Make sure your oil is hot, otherwise you may end up with soggy churros.

  6. Spoon mixture into cake decorators’ tube with large star tip (like the kind use to decorate cakes). Squeeze 4-inch strips of dough into hot oil. Fry 3 or 4 strips at a time until golden brown, turning once, about 2 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels.

  7. Eat them while hot, immediately after frying. Churros are known to get soggy and bland after a few minutes. Sprinkle them with sugar and cinnamon if you want, but it’s not necessary. That’s what the Dulce de Leche is for.
