Churro Ice Cream Bowls Recipe

Churro Ice Cream Bowls Recipe
Churro ice cream bowls are perfect for feeding that inner Churro craving. They are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, exactly how a Churro should be. Without deep frying, and still crispy? Hell yes! With a no-fail method before baking, no one can tell the difference between these and store bought. The exception is these may taste better than store bought. Here is the full recipe to make your very own Churro ice cream bowls.

  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup + 3 tablespoons water (290 mls)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar*
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup cinnamon sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 225°C | 440°F. Turn your muffin tin (standard-sized muffin tin or mini muffin tin) upside down with the open holes facing down and the cups facing up. Lightly grease cups and the area around the cups thoroughly with butter. (I find butter works better than cooking oil spray.) Set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium-sized saucepan. Add in the water, sugar, vanilla and salt; bring to a simmer for 5 minutes while mixing occasionally. Add in the flour, stirring with large wooden spoon until well blended and forms a ball.
  3. Take off heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes, or until just warm to the touch. Add one egg, quickly beating until completely incorporated (it will look like it's not coming together, but keep beating)! Add in the second egg and repeat the process until a dough forms.
  4. Scoop dough into a strong double lined pastry bag with a large open star tip nozzle (I used Wilton 1M). Starting from the bottom, pipe the dough around every second cup to form bowls (leave one empty cup between each bowl to allow the churro pastry to expand). Lightly press each layer together to close up any gaps.
  5. Spray each bowl lightly with cooking oil spray for crispy churros
  6. Bake for 35-40 minutes OR until golden and crispy to the touch
