Churros recipe

Hola a todos!

Today we want to share with you one of the best homemade churros recipe you can make at home with or without a Churro maker (also known as Churro gun). This is one of our favorite churro recipe from Spain, as is very easy and simple to make.

Churros are a type of delicious fried pastry common to find in the Spanish and Portuguese cuisine, and also found in a number of Latin American countries, the Philippines and the United States among others.

There are different views on how and where Churros originated. On one end it is believed that something similar to Churros were brought to Europe from China a few centuries ago by Portuguese sailors, on the other hand, it is also believed Churros were invented by Spanish shepherds while they moved their flock in isolated areas and needed a churros recipe easy to make. In any case, it was not until the 16th century when the Spanish explorers took this delicious dish to the different colonies of the new world (now Latin America) and along the way, they came across chocolate, and this formidable union was solidified. Churros started growing in popularity among the local population. Over time, some of these regions created their own versions of the Spanish Churro, including adding cinnamon which is known by many as Mexican Churros.

Churros are prepared from an amazingly simple mix of flour, water and salt and then fried in oil until golden brown. Churros are enjoyed as desserts, breakfast or snacks depending on the country, and in most cases, they are meant to be dipped into thick chocolate, but they could also be accompanied with coffee.


Equipment You Will Need to Make this DIY Churros Recipe

• Medium-large saucepan
• Heat-resistant bowl
• Spatula or fork
• Piping bag or Churro Maker
• Parchment paper
• Measuring cups and spoons


How To Make Churros Recipe Easy

Ingredients:

• 1 cup water
• 1 cup of plain flour
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 1 pinch of salt
• Vegetable or olive oil for frying

For coating

• 1/2 cup granulated sugar placed in a bowl
• (Optional) add 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon


Instructions

1. Add the water and olive oil to a medium-large saucepan, bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
2. Mix the flour and salt in a heat-resistant bowl. Pour the hot water and oil from step 1 slowly over the mix while stirring constantly with a spatula or fork to form a thick but smooth dough (a few lumps in it are ok), let it cool down (5 minutes).
3. In the meantime, pre-heat about 4cm deep (1 1/2 inches) of vegetable oil in a large pot or deep skillet over medium-high heat to about 182°C (360° F). While oil is heating, it’s time to prepare the Churro strips:
4. Transfer your Churro dough to a piping bag fitted with a star tip.
5. Put a parchment paper on the counter or on a pan. Pipe dough into long Churros on the parchment paper. Do this by putting pressure on the bag and piping slowly, you want the Churro to be about 2 cm wide (3/4”).
6. Cut Churros strips to a desired length with a scissor or knife and place them into the hot oil. (Take extreme caution when working with hot oil). Churros will float, but they need to be turned halfway through frying. Fry until golden brown.
7. Remove from oil and transfer to paper towels to dry briefly. Churros are now ready to get coated before serving.


How To Serve Homemade Churros

After removing the Churros from the frying pan and transferring them briefly to paper towel for a quick dry, toss them in the sugar (or the optional cinnamon-sugar mixture) while still warm, the sugar coating will adhere to the Churros this way. Server with a good Hot Chocolate drink to make it the traditional way.
Explore adding thick chocolate, or some Dulce de Leche (Arequipe/Cajeta) for dipping.
