Tips and Tricks

Air Frying Tips

To ensure even cooking, don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket. If needed, cook the churros in batches to allow enough space for air circulation. This helps achieve the perfect golden brown color.

Ingredient Substitutions

If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can make your own by mixing ½ cup all-purpose flour with ¾ teaspoon baking powder and a pinch of salt. For a dairy-free option, substitute low-fat milk with almond or oat milk.

Storage Tips

Store any leftover churros in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two days. To reheat, simply pop them back in the air fryer for a few minutes to regain their crispy texture.

Ingredients
 

Instructions
 

  • In a small bowl, add flour, yogurt, and ½ teaspoon of vanilla.
  • Stir the ingredients with a wooden spoon until just combined.
  • Continue mixing the dough with your hands until it becomes smooth. This should take about a minute.
  • Prepare your work surface by laying a large piece of parchment or wax paper over it and sprinkling a bit of flour.
  • Place your dough onto the prepared paper.
  • Cut the dough into 6 equal pieces using a knife.
  • Shape each piece of dough into a 5-inch long rope by rolling them.
  • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F, if needed.
  • Spray your air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Arrange your dough ropes in the air fryer, making sure to leave some space between each rope.
  • Give a light spray of nonstick cooking spray over the dough.
  • Air-fry the dough until it turns golden brown, which should take about 6 to 7 minutes.
  • While the churros are cooking, mix 2 tablespoons of sugar and cinnamon in a shallow dish.
  • In a glass measuring cup, combine milk, cocoa, cornstarch, pepper, remaining 1½ teaspoon sugar, and ¼ teaspoon vanilla.
  • Microwave this mixture on High until it starts to bubble and thicken. This should take about 1 minute. Remember to whisk every 20 seconds.
  • After the churros are cooked, brush them all over with melted butter.
  • Roll the buttered churros in the cinnamon-sugar mixture you prepared earlier.
  • Serve the churros warm, along with the sauce you made in the microwave.
