vegetable oil for frying
I made this for a party/meeting and they were a hit. Everyone loved them. I will definitely make them again. I did make sure to use a cloth-type pastry bag and it worked great. I had to pinch each one off into the oil as they didn't just break off, which was totally fine. They did cook pretty fast, so I was getting behind on coating them with the cinnamon/sugar. So, I figured out a quick (and much easier) way to do it. I would scoop them out of the oil with a large flat slotted spoon onto paper towels just long enough to put the next batch into the skillet. I would then dump the hot churros into a ziploc bag with the cinnamon and sugar, shake it up and then just took them out with my hands and placed them on the serving plate. That worked great and they were perfectly coated.
I would not recommend this recipe at all. The dough you end up creating is very plain and the only flavouring at all comes from the cinnamon and sugar. Really a very tasteless dessert that is not worth the effort
This is a very good recipe. Hint: Only beat the eggs enough to blend in, otherwise it will make the texture too doughy.
At 7pm my son told me he needed churros for his Spanish class the next day. Once the recipe was prepared, frying and rolling-in-the cinnamon was quick. These tasted soooo good. Lots of raves from his Spanish class and teacher. I lived in L.A. and I can tell you, these taste great!
I didn't have a pastry cloth or a deep fryer but I made do. Take a ziploc bag and cut a hole in the bottom and squeeze out the dough. For the frying, just use a huge pan and put in a ton of oil.
My only problems were how quickly they cooked. I had to call into my boyfriend to help me remove the oil and coat them, there was no time for one person! Also, they looked kinda like big pieces of poo. Mind you they tasted delicious so who cares how they look?
I have not had a Churro for four months because I moved.I made this recipe and I thought I was in heaven, they are really good. The ones I used to buy had a cream in the middle I am going to try them again soon I have got a cream recipe now. I will let you know how it turned out!!!!!!!
Delicious and so easy to make. Didn't have a pastry bag so I used a ziplock bag and cut a star shape out of the corner. works just as well.
I thought it was too messy for kids to help with, almost too messy for myself. To doughy after cooking. :(
