Tasty Tuesday - Churros

Posted by Claudia Moser on 6:43 AM in ,
Nico and Bianca have a lovely blog and one day I found this amazing recipe, I know full of temptations and chocolate but hey from time to time you are allowed to indulge, right?

Ingredients for the Spanish recipe:

- 500 ml water
- 255 g flour
- 1 tsp salt
- sugar, cinnamon ( to sprinkle )
- plenty of vegetable oil for frying
Hot chocolate sauce:
- 150 g dark chocolate
- 150 ml cream

Place the water and salt in a pot and bring it to boil. Then add all the flour and mix well until a consistent dough is formed. Remove from heat and continue mixing until smooth. Let the dough stand covered for about 15 min, to cool down.
Heat the oil at 180 degrees C in a large frying pan.  Place the dough in a churrera or a pastry bag  with a star shaped tip attached and squeeze out about 20 cm long churros straight into the hot oil. Fry them until golden brown, on each side. Place them on kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil and while they are still hot, sprinkle with sugar or cinnamon sugar. Serve them immediately with hot chocolate sauce.

They also have some other ideas, like Mexican versions! Try it!



Eeek! Chocolate and chocolate. Chocolate and coconut! Yummy. My mouth is watering now!! I just love chocolate - like most women I guess.

Oh, they look so delicious!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
