For you guys that don’t know what Churros are, they are a Spanish Doughnut, but instead of being round they are long and wiggly.They are native to Spanish countries such as Spain and Mexico, although they have been adopted by Americans. When ever you go on holiday to Spain you are sure to have a churro with hot chocolate as brekkie. They are just lovely. I heard about them while watching American TV and instantly fell in love with them.
I had to try one so I decided to make a batch. I found this amazing recipe at: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/churros/ which was rather easy to follow. They came out amazingly and taste BEAUTIFUL when rolled in cinnamon & sugar and dipped in chocolate.
This is to make 10 servings
90 ml water
80 g white sugar
8 g salt
5 ml vegetable oil
310 g all-purpose flour
4 liters oil for frying (or as much as you need to fry)
250 g white sugar, or to taste
6 g ground cinnamon
- In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine water, 250g sugar, salt and 5ml of vegetable oil. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in flour until mixture forms a ball.
- Heat oil for frying in deep-fryer or deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Pipe strips of dough into hot oil using a pastry bag. Fry until golden; drain on paper towels.
- Combine 80g sugar and cinnamon. Roll drained Churros in cinnamon and sugar mixture.
- ENJOY YOUR CHURROS!
The recipe is rather quick and easy, just be careful with hot oil. Make sure oil isn’t too hot or the insides will not cook. Also make sure the batter has enough water in it so it is rather runny and easy to pipe.
