Churro’s all around

These scrumptious sticks of Spanish pastry are unforgettably divine. A crunchy exterior dusted with cinnamon sugar, and a creamy, eggy interior that will melt in your mouth. And so easy to make, you can easily do a couple of dozen in under 30 minutes. And a couple of dozen can easily disappear in under 30 minutes, too.


What you will need:

1 cup water

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/3 cup butter

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup flour

2 eggs, well beaten

1/2 tsp vanilla

 Vegetable oil, for frying

Cinnamon, and sugar, for dusting

Combine water, brown sugar, salt and butter in saucepan and bring just to a boil. Remove from heat and immediately stir in flour until well combined. Beat eggs, add vanilla and stir egg mixture in. I generally use a hand mixer at this point, but it is possible to beat in by hand.

Transfer batter into pastry bag fitted with a large star tip. Heat 1 to 1.5 inches oil in bottom of heavy frying pan, or dutch oven, to 375 degrees. Pipe in 4 inch long strips of batter, frying for approximately 1 minute per each side, or until churros are dark gold in color.

Remove from oil, drain on paper towels. Roll churro sticks in cinnamon sugar, or dust with icing sugar. Delicious served with ice cream, or served with warmed honey as a dip. Can be dressed up with drizzled chocolate for beautiful presentation.
