Ingredients

Scale

For the donuts:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2/3 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter, cooled
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the cinnamon sugar coating:

  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2/3 cups sugar

For the dark chocolate ganache:

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions

For the donuts:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients for the donuts until combined. This mixture will include the flour, cinnamon, sugar, salt and baking powder. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients for the donuts until combined. This mixture will include the eggs, heavy cream, butter and vanilla.
  2. Slowly combine the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients for the donuts and mix until combined. Using a piping bag or a plastic food storage bag with a corner cut off, pipe the donut batter into a sprayed donut pan, filling each donut 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a donut comes out clean and the tops start to turn a golden brown. Flip the donuts out on a cooling rack to cool slightly.

For the cinnamon sugar coating:

  1. While the donuts are baking, prepare the cinnamon sugar coating by putting the melted butter on one small plate and the cinnamon and sugar on another small plate. Stir together the cinnamon and sugar to evenly combine. Once the donuts are cool enough to touch, work with one donut at a time to coat. Lightly coat the donut in the melted butter (wherever there is butter the cinnamon sugar will stick!) and then toss in the cinnamon sugar and place back on a cooling rack or plate. Continue until all donuts are coated.

For the dark chocolate ganache:

  1. For the dark chocolate ganache, bring the heavy cream to a very low simmer over low heat in a small saucepan. Whisk in the dark chocolate chips and continue to whisk until smooth and glossy, about a few minutes. Serve the churro donuts with the dark chocolate ganache drizzled over the top or served as a dipping sauce.
