Homemade Churros

 

Churros! Yum! I’m sure you know what I’m talking about, but just in case, churros are a fried dough covered with sugar. In Spain, churros are a good breakfast/afternoon snack option in winter, when it is a MUST to dip them in thick hot chocolate. You can find them frozen in almost every Spanish supermarket or in the street is specialized stands called “churrerías”. Personally, the best churros are always those 100% homemade. So today, I’m going to show you the recipe I follow to prepare traditional Spanish homemade churros. You cannot imagine how easy it is!

Don’t miss the chance and run to prepare some delicious churros!


Serves: 3

Difficulty: I can light the stove

 

INGREDIENTS

400 ml water

330 g all-purpose flour

a teaspoon of salt

as much sugar as you want

 

STEP BY STEP

In a pot, heat up the water with the salt until it boils.

Pour the boiling water in the bowl containing the flour and mix.

The texture of the mix is quite thick and sticky so it is a good idea not to use the hands but a wooden spoon.

Put all your dough in a piping bag and start giving shape to your churros. I used non-stick baking paper at this step.

Heat up sunflower oil in a pan and fry the churros at medium heat.

Once they are evenly brownish take them out of the pan and place them on a dish with kitchen paper to absorb the oil.

Spread as much sugar as you want to on top and… serve with a good hot chocolate! Yum!
