Churros (Spanish Donuts)

We have just had a 8.30pm snack ! CHURROS (Spanish Donuts) - they were so yummy, crisp and fresh off the hot oil and showered with sugar. Wish all my family and friends lived near by so we could enjoy together. Here's the recipe if you dare to make them cause you won't stop eating them.

** Recipe Adapted from Better Homes & Gardens (TV Show Melbourne 2009)


100 ml milk
100 ml water
80 g butter, cubed
1 ½ tab caster sugar
Pinch salt
120 g plain flour
3 eggs
Vegetable oil for frying
Sugar, extra, for coating


In a medium saucepan, place milk, water, butter, caster sugar and salt and stir over medium flame until butter melts. Bring to boil for 1 minute, while still on the boil put the flour in all at once and quickly stir with a wooden spoon until it all the mixture comes together and forms a ball, keep stirring for about 1 minute. Place the whole mixture into a food processor and let cool for 10 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, pulsing after each addition until mixed through. Heat oil over medium flame and test is oil is ready by dropping a small round piece of mixture into the oil. If it goes brown on one side within 30 seconds, it is ready. Place mixture into piping bag with small star nozzle and pipe long shapes straight into the hot oil. Turn the churros as they cook and remove from oil. Put churros on absorbent paper to soak up excess oil. Place sugar in brown paper bag and as they come off the heat pop each one individually in the bag to shake around and coat with sugar. Remove from bag and place on plate ready to eat. These are so so yummy you won’t want to stop at 10 !
(it will help if you had another helper with this recipe, one to cook and the other to coat)
