Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone! To be honest, I’ve never celebrated this Holiday as we don’t have it in either Singapore or Canada. I’m simply hopping on the bandwagon to post a popular dessert in Mexico!
When I think about churros, I’m reminded of theme parks and street fairs. Your rides would not be complete without them. I’ve always thought that we required special machines to make these babies, but I was wrong! In fact, they’re so easy to make and require very basic ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen.
Makes 15 - 20 pieces of churros
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup butter
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- Oil for deep-frying
- Bring the water to a boil. Add the milk, butter and brown sugar and stir until butter is completely melted.
- Sift in all the flour and stir until mixture forms a dough. Remove from heat and let cool
- After the mixture has cooled for about 10 minutes, add in one egg. Stir until mixture comes together. Add the other egg.
- Turn on your deep fryer to 170 degrees Celsius.
- Meanwhile, insert your dough into a piping bag with the biggest star tip you have.
- Combine the sugar and cinnamon on a separate plate.
- Pipe your dough into the deep fryer and cook until it turns golden brown.
- Dry your cooked churros on a paper towel then roll them in cinnamon-sugar.
Easy right? This is pretty much a fail-proof recipe as long as you follow all the steps above!
Oh and did I mention chocolate? I love dipping my churros into chocolate.
