Homemade Churros

Homemade Churros

Churros are a typical Spanish dessert that can be bought and loved throughout Spain. in case you don’t locate them in cafeterias, you’ll find stalls promoting them on the streets, at some stage in fiestas or in special shops called ChurrerĂ­as.

consider deep fried choux pastry dipped in hot chocolate…mmmm…delicious! Now i've to mention that my preferred churros come from small stalls. they're large, thick and filling.
My phrase of advice – in case you ever get to go to Spain, try to find a place in which you may buy thick creamy hot chocolate (almost like a pudding) and you’ll be in for a real treat!

Homemade Churros


  • 1 cup Water (250ml)
  • pinch of Salt
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • ⅔ cup All-Purpose Flour (110g)
  • ¼ stick Unsalted Butter
  • Oil , for frying
  • 1 Egg

  1. area water, butter, sugar & a pinch of salt into a medium length sauce pan. carry to the boil.
  2. add the flour and mix vigorously until nicely combined (the dough will come together in a minute or two).
  3. put off from the range and permit it cool a bit. as soon as it is not too hot, add the egg and work the egg into the dough. attempt to do it as rapid as possible. At the start it'd appear to be the churro dough doesn’t wanna bind but take a while it'll.
  4. Pour the oil into a big frying pan and warmth it up.
  5. Fill a piping bag outfitted with famous person piping tip with half of the dough (it's far less difficult to handle).
  6. check if the oil is ready for frying by using losing a tiny piece of the dough in. once the dough turns great brown, you are prepared to pipe the churros in.
  7. Pipe the dough directly into the hot oil (choose any length you like) and cut with a fork (i found fork the excellent device for this). Do not pipe too many churros in as they need space for frying. it'll take simplest approximately 2 mins for them to get first-class golden coloration and that may be a sign they're equipped. They need to get the coloration steadily. in case you see they're no longer getting darkish calmly, reduce the temperature.
  8. Take them out and location them on a paper kitchen towel to remove the excess oil.
  9. when they may be nonetheless warm, roll every of them in a sugar mixed with floor cinnamon.
  10. Serve heat with thick hot chocolate or chocolate pudding.
