Today we will see how to make churros, fried sweets that belong to the traditional Spanish pastry.
Very common throughout the American continent, these desserts are accompanied in various ways: sprinkled with a mix of sugar and cinnamon powder or with dulce de leche (sweetened milk).
The dough is very simple and consists of flour, water, sugar and salt.
They are great for breakfast or snack and are usually accompanied with hot drinks, such as chocolate or coffee.
Ingredients for 4 people: 300 g flour 00 – 1/2 l water – 35 g sugar – 1 teaspoon salt – 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder – oil for frying
Put water, salt and 1 teaspoon of sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Pour in the flour and stir quickly with a wooden spoon, the dough will become very dense and a bit hard to work, but continue to stir for 2-3 minutes. Cover and let cool.
Fill a sac à poche with a star-shaped tip. Cover the worktop with baking paper and pack the churros (about 15 cm long each). Prick them with a fork to prevent the dough to swell and break during frying.
Pour the oil in a pan and bring it to temperature. Fry the churros a few at a time and, once ready, let them drain on paper towels.
The churros must be very crunchy outside and soft inside, so be careful with the cooking time.
Mix the remaining granulated sugar together with the powdered cinnamon. Sprinkle the churros with this mixture and serve hot.
Enjoy your meal!
