I love love love churros! and I always have fun making them, because they are really easy to make and taste so great! Very basic ingredients needed and the recipe is straight forward. I’ll get into it now
What you’ll need:
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup water
- 1/3 cup unsalted butter
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
Step 1: Preheat some vegetable oil in a deep pan for about 10 minutes. While that is heating up, add the water, brown sugar, butter and salt in a separate saucepan on medium heat. Mix the ingredients until it comes to a boil
Step 2: Switch off the heat, add the flour and mix together. Add the egg and vanilla extract, then mix thoroughly until the dough comes together.
Step 3: Put the dough in a piping bag and make sure the nozzle is wide enough to create you desired size (I would have preferred bigger churros but the biggest nozzle I had didn’t do the job) . At this stage, you want to make sure the oil is at the perfect temperature; that way your churros don’t get soggy or burnt
Step 4: Put only a small amount of your mixture in the oil to test it, and then adjust the temperature if necessary. Once the temperature is perfect, squeeze some dough into the oil. It should cook for a few minutes and ensure that both sides are cooked evenly or until they have that nice golden brown colour.
Step 5: Transfer them to a paper towel to dry the excess oil and then mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a plate, and place the cooked churros into the mixture and ensure they are fully coated. There you have it!
I served my churros with strawberry syrup. Let me know if you need the recipe for that and I will be more than happy to share that here!
