Churros Si Senor!

I made churros!! It feels like such an accomplishment, I never thought it would be possible to make churros! I mean its churros!! It's what you eat at the beach, so making it in my kitchen was quite ironic. They didn't turn out as easy to make as I had hoped! Making the dough was very straightforward but when came the actual frying... oh boy. I do not have a deep fryer so I used a pan and boiled the oil. To make the design on the churros I used a frosting kit and a piping bag - only problem was that the tip kept on falling off and i was so scared it would fall off in the boiling oil! Plastic and boiling oil together = my life is over. Anyhow you should definitely try them, they're yummy! They were gone so fast!! I used the recipe found here and changed it a bit.
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 110 g of butter
  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 150g of flour
  • 3 eggs
  • frying oil (the recipe calls for canola oil)
  • sugar for coating
  1. In a pan, bring to a boil the water, milk, butter, sugar and salt. Mix. Once boiling, take off heat.
  2. Add the flour in one go and mix thoroughly until you get a nice dough consistency. 
  3. Add the eggs one by one and mix. 
  4. Put the mix in a piping bag. 
  5. Boil your oil. 
  6. Pipe out some churros and let boil for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. 
  7. Remove from oil and coat with sugar.
  8. Enjoy!
* If you had some leftover dough, put it in the freezer for another time. 
* This is the same dough as the pate a choux and you can thus make eclairs if you have leftover dough!

Thanks for blogging this! We had churros in a Mexican restaurant in Germany and my wife is eager to try making them.
