Like I promise a days ago here is the Churros recipe.

Ohh Pastry!!!! Back in Venezuela (my country), there you will find ALWAYS a place where you can eat Churros, usually are better in places with low temperature, because they are served warmer and you will enjoy it better I think.

Churros are made from a dough that then you have to fried, and sparkle with sugar.

The better way to serve this is accompanied with hot chocolate, is the perfect combination.

The Churros can be also fill with nutella, or Dulce the leche, what else you can ask? Rest assure, Churros are incredible.

Try it and let me know about your experience, leave any comments about it.


Makes about 4 servings
Vegetable oil for frying
1 cup water
1 stick (4 ounces) butter
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
Prepare to fry the churros by heating about 1 1/2 inches of oil in a deep pan.  The oil should be about 360 degrees F.
To make the dough, bring the water, butter, cinnamon and salt to a rolling boil in a 3-quart saucepan.  Stir in the flour all at once.  Reduce the heat to low and stir vigorously until the mixture forms a ball, about 1 minute.  Remove the pan from the heat.

Beat the 3 eggs until well blended then add them, in 3 additions, to the mixture in the saucepan – keep stirring until the mixture comes together and is smooth.  (You can do this in a mixer with a paddle attachment if you’ve already had your daily workout.)
Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large star tip.  Have a scissors at hand.  Hold the bag over the hot oil, squeeze a strip of dough about 4 inches long, snip it with the scissors and let it drop into the oil.  Fry 3 to 4 strips at a time, turning once, until golden brown, about 2 minutes on a side.  Drain on paper towels.  Roll the churros in the sugar and serve immediately.  These are really best minutes after they’ve been fried.

Then... I thank you so much!
