Do you like churros? Do you even know what churros are? Churros are essentially a Spanish donut usually covered in cinnamon and sugar and dipped into rich chocolate sauce. Ever since we have closed our brick and mortar shops tons of people ask us how we make our churros (since we no longer make them). Well, today is your lucky day because we are about to spill the beans on our secret process for making these delicious treats.
2 cups Water
2 Tablespoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
¼ cup Veg Oil
2 Cups Flour
parchment lined trays
kitchenaid mixer with dough paddle attachment
Bring water to a boil in small pot with sugar, salt and vegetable oil and mix.
Mix dry ingredients together in separate bowl
Remove pot from heat and add flour and stir with a wooden spoon.
Once the flour is incorporated into the water place it in the Kitchenaid mixer with the dough hook attachment and have it work the dough on the lowest setting for 3-5 minutes.
Let the dough cool for 20-30 minutes.
Spray inside of Churro press with non-stick spray.
Add the dough to the churro press and crank the lever until dough starts to come out. *Be careful not to crank too fast or the lever will hit you in the face.
Crank out churros that are about 8 inches long on a parchment lined tray.
Place trays into the freezer and let them freeze.
In order to make them into their iconic shape you need to pipe them into a fryer. We like to use a sausage press as we can make a lot of them at once and it doesnt hurt our hands as much.
Hope you enjoy the recipe.
