This churros is dust with sugar and ground cinnamon, partnered with chocolate dip. Churros are fried in a medium-high heat saucepan until it’s golden brown and light crisp.

There is a slight resemblance to making churros and doughnuts. What amazed me is its crispiness outside but soft inside.

Ingredients and Measurements

  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • vegetable oil

Sugar Coating:

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

Choclate Syrup:

  • 115ml all purpose cream
  • 43g chocolate bar

Method

  1. In a saucepan, fill in with 1 cup of water, butter, salt over medium heat. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low, add vanilla extract(optional).
  2. Add flour and stir with a wooden spatula vigorously until thickens and evenly incorporated. Don't forget to lower the setting temperature from medium to low heat. At this time, it will form a ball. Let it rest for a few seconds. While you do this get the remaining ingredients and mixing bowl if you want to transfer the mixture. (Just a little fancy) But I prefer mine to the same skillet. Besides, you can do what makes you feel comfortable. 😊
  3. Then, beat in eggs one at a time, and whisk until combined. Set aside.
  4. Transfer mixture to a piping bag. The safest and fastest way to transfer the dough in a piping bag. In a large glass place in the piping bag with a large star tip inserted.
  5. Add enough oil into a skillet over medium heat or a 350˚ temperature. I recommend using a food thermometer to monitor the heat faster. Then carefully pipe churros. Note: The batter is a bit thick so expect that it won’t be as smooth once piped. The texture of the batter is so stable at this moment and time-consuming. --To avoid overcooked churros. And I bet you don’t want over fry churros or churros that aren’t looking their best. I found you the best way and will also save our precious time in making delicious churros. First, (while allowing our dough mixture to rest for about 5-7minutes) Get a grip tightly on piping with the churros mixture, line a 3-inch sized batch on a flat surface with parchment paper. - Highly recommended.
  6. Pipe 1-inch strip of dough over the saucepan, cut, and fry into the hot oil. Repeat until churros fill saucepan to make sure there’s remaining space to fry. Do not overload too much. Fry churros until golden brown. Use a strainer to remove churros from the heating oil.
  7. Prepare the mixed sugar and ½ teaspoon cinnamon in a medium bowl. Toss in churros until completely coated. Serve with favorite dipping sauce.
