Crunch on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside, coated in cinnamon and sugar, nothing is quite so good as the perfectly made churro. Make your own at home with this recipe for Churros. Made from a mixture of all purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and boiling water, these churros are fried in olive oil to save some calories and then coated in a generous layer of granulated sugar. Coat in a cinnamon sugar mixture if you like a little spice with your sweet.
- 250 milliliters water
- 120 grams all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- olive oil
- In a pot, set the water to boil with the salt.
- Separately, sift the flour and baking powder together. When the water is boiling, add the flour in one large lump. Immediately remove the pot from heat and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until everything is mixed.
- Once the dough has cooled enough to handle, spoon it into a pastry bag fitted with a serrated tip.
- Pipe out strips of dough onto parchment paper and cut them off with a knife or scissors. Make sure they will fit in the skillet you are using to fry.
- Heat up the olive oil on medium-high heat and once hot, add the churros in batches until golden. You may need to cover the oil while they fry to prevent spitting.
- Remove the churros onto paper towels to drain and sprinkle with granulated sugar before serving.
