Churros!

Mmm!!! Super tasty home made churros! Genuenly one of the easiest treats I’ve ever made. Thanks to  a combanation of ChocolateChocolateandMore and a few little online hints, I managed to make scrumtious churros first time round! 
You’ll need :
For the churros
  • 1/3 cup of butter
  • 2/3 cup of water
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 + 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • quite a bit of oil for frying 
For the coating
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 tblsp of ground cinnamon
How to make them!

It’s much easier if you prepare everything to begin with, trust me! 
  • Pour your oil into a pan for frying, or if you have a deep fat fryer use that. Line a baking tray with kitchen roll for draining.
  •  Mix the sugar and cinnamon for coating and place in a deep dish/ plate. Also assemble a large piping bag with a star nozzle.
  • Place the butter and water in a medium-sized pan and boil till mixed. In a heat proof bowl, place the salt, flour and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. 
  • Pour the butter/water into the bowl and with a hand mixer combine them to a dough. 
  • Add the eggs and wisk until smooth.
  • Heat the oil to 350 degrees (if you don’t have a food thermometer, like me, just throw in a cube of bread, if it browns its good, if it burns it’s too hot, if it doent sizzle it’s too cold.) 
  • Be ready to drain the churros on your baking tray and remember this is a runny dough, so when you’re not using the piping bag rest it in a glass or hold it in your hand upside down, just don’t let it run! 
  • Pipe the dough into the oil whatever shape/length you want. When you see the edges become golden turn the dough until all golden/brown. 
  • Quickly remove from pan onto the tray.
  • Repeat until all the dough is used.
  • Roll the warm churros in the coating until completely covered.
Eat! ….. reccomended with hot chocolate and chocolate fudge sauce to dunk 🙂
