Churros with Chocolate

Churros with Chocolate Recipe - Churros are a fried-dough pastry and the Spanish equivalent to doughnuts, for the real Spanish experience they should be dipped into a thick hot chocolate sauce.

Churros are one of the most popular foods in Spain, have them for breakfast, or as a snack, any time of the day. 

Ingredients
50g butter, melted

½ tsp vanilla extract

250g plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

about 1 litre sunflower oil for frying.

For the sauce

200g bar dark chocolate, not too bitter, broken into chunks

100ml double cream

100ml whole milk

3 tbsp golden syrup

½ tsp vanilla extract, if you have some

For the cinnamon sugar - Traditionally in Spain these are just dipped in sugar, but the cinnamon just adds that extra taste.
100g caster sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Churros with Chocolate

Method

Boil the kettle, then measure 350ml boiling water into a jug and add the melted butter and vanilla extract.

Sift the flour and baking powder into a big mixing bowl with a big pinch of salt. Make a well in the centre, then pour in the contents of the jug and very quickly beat into the flour with a wooden spoon until lump-free. Rest for 10-15 mins while you make the sauce.

Put all the sauce ingredients into a pan and gently melt together, stirring occasionally until you have a smooth shiny sauce. Keep warm on a low heat.

Fill a large deep saucepan one-third full of oil. Heat until a cube of bread browns in 45 seconds – 1 min.

Cover a tray with kitchen paper and mix the caster sugar and cinnamon together.

Fit a star nozzle to a piping bag, 1.5-2cm wide is a good size. Fill with the rested dough, then pipe 2-3 strips directly into the pan, snipping off each dough strip with a pair of kitchen scissors.

Fry until golden brown and crisp, then remove with a slotted spoon and drain on the kitchen paper-lined tray.

Carry on cooking the rest of the dough in batches, sprinkling the cooked churros with some cinnamon sugar as you go. Once you’ve cooked all the churros, toss with any remaining cinnamon sugar and serve with the chocolate sauce, for dipping.
