Servings 4


  • Air Fryer
  • electric mixer


  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1 cup All purpose flour
  • 3 Large eggs
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon


  • Combine the butter, water, sugar, and milk in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat while stirring frequently.
  • Add flour and continue to mix thoroughly. Remove from the heat and continue to stir until the mixture comes together into a smooth ball.
  • When the dough reaches the smooth ball stage, transfer it into a large mixing bowl and let it cool for a few minutes.
  • Add eggs one at a time into the dough mixture, and mix until smooth. I'm using a electric mixer for this. Let the mixture cool for a while.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400F.
  • Place the dough into a piping bag with an open star decorating tip attached.
  • Pipe the dough onto a parchment paper, at about 3-4 inches each. Alternatively, you may pipe the dough directly into the air fryer basket if you prefer.
  • Spray some oil onto the air fryer basket, and transfer 8 to 10 churros dough into it. Ensure that you leave enough space in between each churro. Spray some oil onto the churros.
  • Cook the churros in the preheated air fryer for about 6-8 minutes until they are golden brown. 
  • In a small bowl, mix together the cinnamon and sugar. When the churros are done, add them to the cinnamon sugar immediate and rol them until they are coated.
  • Allow the churros to cool on a wire rack for a few minutes before serving with any of your favorite chocolate or caramel sauces.
