How to make Churros

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 –

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup All Purpose flour
  • 1 cup Water
  • ¼ stick Butter
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • Vegetable oil
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar
  • Chocolate dip

Procedure:

  1. Combine water, sugar, butter and salt. Bring to boil.
  2. Lower the heat. Add flour.
  3. Mix until it forms into a ball.
  4. Remove from the pan. Let it cool for a few minutes.
  5. Add eggs, one at a time. It may seem hard to combine but trust me, with some elbow grease it will.
  6. Continue mixing until fully incorporated.
  7. Form the dough into sticks using churros dispenser or piping bag with star tip.
  8. Deep fry until golden brown.
  9. Coat with mixed sugar and cinnamon for added flavor.
  10. Serve with chocolate dip.

Easy right?! Enjoy this with brewed coffee for grown-ups or fruit shake for kids. Perfect combination!

Happy eating! 👍😋
