Easy Churros Recipe
What a fun whirlwind holiday weekend, and not quite ready for August to close, but darn it, I don’t get a choice…sooo HELLO September!!
We took advantage of the fabulous sunshine we’re having by getting outdoors, spent time with friends, and enjoyed the heck out of not having to drive to the office.
The weekend involved chatting it up with some of my girlfriends, walks by the beach, a fun a date night with Alan.
We also snuck in scenic hikes both Sunday and Monday! It was so relaxing and enjoyable.
What Are Churros?
When I try something new, I like to surprise everyone without giving many hints to what I’m making.
Curious minds were all over this…are those churros?!! YUM!!
Have you had churros before?
Churros are a Spanish snack or breakfast dish of fried dough that is rolled in a cinnamon sugar blend.
You can find them at fairs quite often, and they’re usually about a foot long, not minis like I made here.
Fried pastry dough! No wonder they’re so addictive!
We ate these churros as a snack.
Churros Rolled In Cinnamon-Sugar Mix
Once you whip up this churro recipe you’ll find that they test best warm.
Right after fry each churro, roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mix, which is the traditional way to eat these.
You can also dip churros in hot chocolate, melted chocolate sauce or sprinkled with powdered sugar.
They’re also great with my Cinnamon Vanilla Bean Ice Cream!
- 4 tablespoons butter, unsalted
- 1 cup water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
- 3 large eggs
- oil, for frying (I used coconut oil)
- cinnamon sugar ( 1/2 cup granulated sugar mixed with 1 tablespoon cinnamon)
If batter appears to be too thin, add a tablespoon (or more) at a time. The consistency may vary depending on the size of eggs used.
