A Delicious Recipe for Making These Classic Fried Pastries at Home

 

Churros are a classic fried pastry that originated in Spain and are now enjoyed all over the world. They are made with a simple dough that is piped through a star-shaped tip and deep-fried until it is golden and crispy. Churros are traditionally served with a generous dusting of cinnamon sugar and a rich chocolate dipping sauce. Here is a recipe for making churros at home:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Chocolate Dipping Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 oz semisweet chocolate, chopped

Instructions:

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the water, butter, and salt to a boil over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add in the flour all at once and stir vigorously until the mixture forms a ball. Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.

  2. In a small bowl, beat the eggs together until smooth. Gradually add the eggs to the flour mixture, stirring until the dough is smooth and shiny.

  3. Transfer the dough to a pastry bag fitted with a large, star-shaped tip.

  4. Heat a large pot of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F.

  5. Pipe the dough into the hot oil in 4-inch lengths, using scissors to cut the dough from the pastry bag. Fry the churros in batches until they are golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side.

  6. Use a slotted spoon to remove the churros from the oil and drain them on a paper towel-lined plate.

  7. In a shallow bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon. Roll the churros in the cinnamon sugar while they are still warm.

  8. To make the chocolate dipping sauce, bring the heavy cream to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove the pan from the heat and add in the chopped chocolate, stirring until the chocolate is melted and the sauce is smooth.

  9. Serve the churros warm, with the chocolate dipping sauce on the side. Enjoy!

Note: If you prefer a softer, doughier churro, you can reduce the frying time to 1-2 minutes per side. You can also experiment with different dipping sauces, such as caramel or dulce de leche, or add in additional flavorings to the dough, such as orange zest or chopped nuts.
