Churros and Award


Churros ( or Spanish doughnuts ) are deep-fried sticks of dough, sprinkled with sugar and served with warm chocolate sauce for dipping. The dough is a mixture of flour, water and salt. These taste best when they are freshly fried.

Serves : 4 - 6

Ingredients :
  • 300 ml.  water
  • 175 gm.  plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Groundnut or sunflower oil, for deep frying
  • Caster sugar mixed with ground cinnamon, to coat the churros

Method :
  • Bring the water to the boil in a heavy pan. When it is boiling furiously, tip in all the flour and salt, and beat vigorously until it becomes a smooth & stiff paste and the ball of the dough leaves the side of the pan.
  • Remove from heat and beat in the eggs gradually until the mixture is smooth and glossy.
  • Put the mixture into a large piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle.
  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan on medium heat.
  • Working in batches, pipe sections of dough directly into the oil, about 4 inches long. Using a small knife or your finger, cut the dough strips off at the nozzle.
  • Fry them until golden brown, turning occasionally.
  • Remove the churros from the pan with a slotted spoon and toss in cinnamon sugar.
  • Serve immediately with warm chocolate sauce, if desired.

  19. Your churros do look tasty! I have never gone to the point of actually making them myself, because I have such a weakness for them. You did a wonderful job on these.
    Also, congrats on the recent award! So sweet of you to think of me when passing it along-it is always nice to have this form of thumbs up granted! I am behind on my public thanks for awards, so I am rolling out two every Wednesday, but I will let you know when I link you up. Have a wonderful day and thanks again!
