Churros


Churros or Spanish doughnuts always remind me of Melbourne. Me and J would drive all the way to Queen Victoria Market just to buy them from the churros van. We could eat a dozen of them in one go :D My homemade churros are crisp outside and moist inside, very similar to the ones we had back in Melbourne. For a more sinful treat, try dipping your churros in chocolate ^^

Churros

Ingredients:
75 gr butter
250 ml water
a pinch of salt
115 gr flour

2) Add flour and sugar, mix until well combined. Remove from heat.
3) Add eggs, mix until well combined.
4) Place batter in a pastry bag.
5) Pipe into hot oil.
6) Deep-fry until golden brown over medium heat.
7) Drain excess oil. Dip in chocolate or sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Serve warm.
