Cinnamon Sugar Churros

I got this recipe from Ellie@Almost Bourdain! When i first saw it i was literally squealing away in front of my laptop. I love churros. Never crossed my mind that i’d make them myself one day!

Cinnamon (Sugar) Churros
(From Almost Bourdain)

Sunflower oil, for deep frying
100 g plain flour
150 ml full-cream milk
2 medium eggs, beaten
50 g golden caster sugar
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Bring the milk and 150 ml water to the boil in a pan.

Take the pan off the heat and add the (sifted) flour all at once, beating vigorously with a wooden spoon until the mixture forms a thick paste – but don’t worry about any small lumps.

Leave to cool slightly and then gradually beat in enough of the eggs..

..to make a smooth but still stiff, glossy mixture that dropsย reluctantlyย off the wooden spoon. It’s just like a choux pastry dough at this stage!

Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle (aka my favourite piping tip of all! heehee.)

Hold the bag over the hot oil and gently squeeze out a few 10-cm lengths of the mixture. Bloop bloop! This is where the fun comes in ๐Ÿ˜›

Leave them to fry for 4 minutes, turning them oven halfway through, until crisp and richly golden brown. Lift them out with a slotted spoon onto a baking tray lined with lots of kitchen paper and keep warm in the oven while you cook the remainder.

The first few!

Mix the caster sugar and cinnamon together in a shallow dish, add theย churrosย a few at a time, and toss them gently until lightly coated.

Verdict? It’s good.. But not as churros. Definitely not churro texture! Honestly.. was rather disappointed :S But it’s worth giving this recipe a try if you’re not particular about churros like me. Hahaha, cos i really did enjoy making these! Really fun ๐Ÿ™‚

Ellie, i still love you okay! Heh, you’ve motivated me to hunt for the churro recipe! ๐Ÿ˜›

Something random..

Sorry phone camera quality! Hahaha, cos i made it early in the morning before lessons. I had to rush like crazy! But it was a good friend’s birthday and i really wanted to bake her something. She’s a huge fan of Spongebob. So i tried my best to actually draw it. Hahahaha! Was almost late for class making these. Heh.

Sudden thought.. I need a bake date. Anybody?

    • ah i miss disneyland! you could make these, but definitely far from the churro texture. great fun to make though.
      and yes, theyโ€™re match made in heaven!

    • haha no ellie not your fault!
      i think it tastes awesome and all.
      but i was expecting it to be of another texture that i like!
      heh. you know i still love you right? hahaha!

  1. Sorry it didn’t turn out the way you expected it to. It happened to me too, with a different recipe. I went for churro balls, and while they tasted good, they were more of cinnamon+dough ๐Ÿ˜› But having said that, this looks good! Maybe I’ll try it after this ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. And they looked so good too! Loved your photos and descriptions. I’m crazy about churros- guess I better keep looking for another recipe! But it was a good try.

  3. OMG they look SO good.. I’m sitting here drinking my morning coffee wondering why I don’t have a nice churros to munch on along with it!

    Awesome entry!
