Banana Churros Recipe

Over the weekend I was trying to think of what recipe I could make for the blog.  I had some over-mushy bananas, so I thought I would make some banana bread.  As I was scouring the internet for recipes, I happened to stumble across a Cinco de Mayo page with churros.  I LOVE churros and I thought banana would go with that yummy fried dough flavor perfectly!! I did a little experimenting and the result is below:

Banana Churros


1/4 cup water

1/4 cup butter

3/4 cup milk

2 1/4 cups flour

1 tsp. baking powder

2 eggs

2 over-ripe bananas, mashed


4 Tbsp. sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon


Bring water, butter and milk to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.

Turn off heat and add flour and baking powder, stirring rapidly until a soft ball is formed.

With an electric mixer, beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the banana.

Allow to cool for a few minutes.  Spoon into a pastry bag (or you can use a gallon storage bag and snip a corner).

Heat oil (at a 2 inch depth) to 350F in a deep pan or fryer.

Pipe dough in 2-3 inch tubes directly into hot oil.

Fry until golden brown, turning once halfway through cooking.

Remove churros to a paper towel to drain.

Combine sugar and cinnamon on a plate.

Roll churros in cinnamon-sugar mixture.
