Churros con Chocolate

Churros are the perfect treat for anybody. They are best enjoyed warm and of course with hot chocolate. Churros use to intimidate me. I just thought they were one of those things you buy but when you make it yourself, the outcome is a mystery until you try and believe me, there’s nothing to be intimidated about. Some say you really need a churro maker to achieve the perfect consistency but then I say, “Well, back in the day, there were no churro makers.” 

Everything was handmade, even though I use my electric mixer, you can perfectly well make them by hand.


1 cup flour 1 cup water 4 tbsp butter pinch salt 1 tbsp sugar 3 eggs oil for frying

for coating 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon In a saucepan, mix together water, butter, sugar and salt over medium-high heat and bring it to boil. Add the flour all at once and mix with wooden spoon until well mixed and no lumps of flour remain. Remove from heat and let cool for a minute. Transfer to a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment and mix adding the eggs one at a time beating well after each addition. Mix until the dough comes together, it should be smooth. Scrape the dough into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Heat the oil into a deep heavy skillet (I used cast iron) When Oil is hot, pipe the dough into the oil and cut with scissors. Don’t overcrowd the pan. Fry until golden brown. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon and coat the churros with the mixture. Serve with your favorite hot chocolate.
