Churro's (spanish Donuts)Ingredients
1 cup water
½ cup butter (I used salted butter, if you use unsalted add a pinch of salt to the batter)
2 tablespoon sugar
1 Cup flour
Oil for frying
2 cups castor sugar
2 tablespoon ground cinnamon Method
Mix together the cinnamon and sugar and set aside.
In a saucepan, combine the water, butter, sugar and salt. Allow the butter to melt and stir everything together.
Sift in the flour and stir until a ball starts to form.
Transfer the mixture to your stand-alone mixer or to a separate bowl if you are using a hand-held blender.
Allow the mixture to cool for 5 minutes.
Place enough oil into a pot to fry the churros and allow to heat.
Start beating the dough and add the eggs one at a time. Beat well after each addition.
The mixture will become slightly sticky and more like a batter, but still thick and glossy.
Place the batter into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle.
When the oil is hot, pipe long shapes into the oil and allow to fry until golden brown, flip them over and fry on the other side. (as I drop them into the oil I snip the dough with a a scissor to get equal size peices)
Coat the churros in the cinnamon sugar.
Serve warm with chocolate sauce.
