Fried, how wonderful

Posted on December 21, 2008. Filed under: Deserts | Tags: , |

I always like trying new recipies, and I’ve been wanting to try this churro recipie for a while. One thing I had issues with when I was making them was putting the dough into the icing bag. I also didn’t have the correct sized nozzle, so the churros were very thin.

Churros
(orginally from
http://www.mykitchensnippets.com/2008/02/spanish-churros.html)

260 ml of water
6 tbsp of butter
1/2 tsp of salt
2 tbsp of sugar
1 3/4 cup of flour
1 tsp of baking powder
3 eggs
Some sugar, cinnamon for coating the Churros

Mix the flour with baking powder and set aside. Bring the water, butter, sugar and salt to a boil in a saucepan. Turn off the heat and add the flour all at once and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until smooth and form a ball.
2. Cool the dough and transfer to dough to a mixer. Add in the egg one at a time and beat on medium speed until well combined.
3.Transfer the dough into a pastry bag equipped with a 3/8-inch star tip or a decorating tool.
4. Heat some oil for deep frying. When the oil is hot squeeze about 4-5″ lengths of dough through the pastry bag into the oil.
5. Reduce the heat to medium-hot and fry until the Churros puff and turn to golden brown
6. Drain on paper towels and dredge them in sugar or cinnamon sugar while they are still warm.

These were so good! I think in Mexico they sometimes sprinkle the churros with flavored sugars. I’ve had cinnamon and strawberry in my life.
