Churros with chocolate is one of Spanish chef Miguel Meastre's favourite comfort foods. He shared his recipe, so it can be yours too!


  • 250 ml milk
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 50 g unsalted butter, chopped
  • 2 vanilla beans, split, seeds scraped out
  • 115 g plain flour
  • 3 egg yolks
  • Vegetable oil, for deep frying
  • Caster sugar, to dust

Chocolate sauce

  • 100 ml cream
  • 200 g dark eating chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tbsp condensed milk
  • Splash milk


To make chocolate sauce, stir cream in a small saucepan until hot, add to a bowl with chocolate, whisk until smooth then whisk in condensed milk and milk. Cover to keep warm.

Bring milk, sugar, butter and vanilla beans and seeds to a boil in a medium saucepan. Discard vanilla beans. Remove from heat.

Sift in flour quickly. Mix well with a whisk until combined and dough comes away from side of pan. Beat in egg yolks one at a time.

Spoon dough into a piping bag fitted with a 2-cm star nozzle.

Heat oil to 180°C. Pipe 5-cm lengths into oil, cutting off the dough with a sharp knife.

Deep fry churros until golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper.

Dust with caster sugar. Serve with chocolate sauce.
