Mmmmm Churros with chocolate sauce!!! But how well will they bake???

30 Apr

I have a serious craving lately for some churros with chocolate sauce.

We had them at the Vic Market not long ago and they were only $1 each and so fresh and yummy!

El churro in Northland charges about $7.90 for a serve and I think that is completely obscene!

I don’t know about you but I detest deep frying food –

due to the mess and of course the negative health benefits,

so I thought “I wonder if I can find a baked churros recipe?”

And the result is no recipe can be found!! They are all using American ingredients or puff pastry (cheats!)

So now I will take an easy churros recipe found at Spanish Home Cooking,

modify it and this weekends’ project will be to attempt to make them myself.

Hmmmmm so wish me luck everyone!!!

I now need to find my piping bag in my freshly organised kitchen!

Ingredients:

1 cup plain flour
1 pinch bicarb of soda
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp caster sugar
1 cup of water
1/2 tea spoon of salt
Oil (to fry the churros – canola or vegetable oil is fine)
Caster Sugar (to sprinkle over the churros once they are cooked)
1 litre of full-fat milk
300gr of chocolate (Get the best chocolate you can 70 % cacao dark chocolate should be good enough)

Preparation:

  • Put the water and oil in a pot on a medium heat. When it starts to boil, add the flour, salt and sugar. Mix well with a wooden spoon until the mixture becomes consistent and until the dough sticks to the sides of the saucepan, Switch off the gas.
  • An easy way to make the churros in the right shape is to use a piping bag as you would for decorating a cake. Use a large star-shaped nozzle and firmly but gently squeeze the dough out through the nozzle.
