Homemade Churros

Churros are a typical Spanish dessert that can be bought and enjoyed all over Spain. If you don’t find them in cafeterias, you’ll find stalls selling them on the streets, during fiestas or in special shops called Churrerías.

Imagine deep fried choux pastry dipped in hot chocolate…mmmm…delicious! Now I have to say that my favorite churros come from small stalls. They are large, thick and filling.

My word of advice – if you ever get to visit Spain, try to find a place where you can buy thick creamy hot chocolate (almost like a pudding) and you’ll be in for a real treat!

Ingredients

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

Instructions

  • Place water, butter, sugar & a pinch of salt into a medium size sauce pan. Bring to the boil.
  • Add the flour and mix vigorously until well blended (the dough will come together in a minute or two).
  • Remove from the stove and let it cool a bit. Once it is not too hot, add the egg and work the egg into the dough. Try to do it as fast as possible. At the beginning it might look like the churro dough doesn’t wanna bind but take your time it will.
  • Pour the oil into a large frying pan and heat it up.
  • Fill a piping bag fitted with star piping tip with half of the dough (it is easier to handle).
  • Check if the oil is ready for frying by dropping a tiny piece of the dough in. Once the dough turns nice brown, you are ready to pipe the churros in.
