Churros or Chürrō in Spanish is a fried dough pastry dipped in hot chocolate. The exact origin is unknown, although it is said to have gained popularity among European countries. When I tried this in La Lola and Dulcinea in Makati, I knew right away that my daughter will love it. She liked it a lot that I had to device a way to make it available for her anytime. With a little research and some trial and error, I’m now doing it at home, served in a bowl hot and crisp. In case you want to try, here’s how –
- 1 cup All Purpose flour
- 1 cup Water
- ¼ stick Butter
- ½ tsp. Salt
- 1 tsp. Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- Vegetable oil
- Chocolate dip
- Combine water, sugar, butter and salt. Bring to boil.
- Lower the heat. Add flour.
- Mix until it forms into a ball.
- Remove from the pan. Let it cool for a few minutes.
- Add eggs, one at a time. It may seem hard to combine but trust me, with some elbow grease it will.
- Continue mixing until fully incorporated.
- Form the dough into sticks using churros dispenser or piping bag with star tip.
- Deep fry until golden brown.
- Coat with mixed sugar and cinnamon for added flavor.
- Serve with chocolate dip.
Easy right?! Enjoy this with brewed coffee for grown-ups or fruit shake for kids. Perfect combination!
Happy eating! 👍😋
