Churros with Chocolate Sauce

Before I share the recipe of my version of churros, let me tell you first. This is NOT my first time making churros. I have tried so many times (don’t remember exactly) and always very disappointed. Most of the time the dough is way too hard so I couldn’t push it out of my nozzle. Then I had to use spoon to “shape” them.

And I finally saw this video in youtube. Looked easy and the consistency of the dough is very promising. The problem is Ramsay didn’t mentioned how much flour he used. I had to googled the recipe and I found it. I decided to try it. Actually when I read the recipe, it was already suspicious. Something doesn’t look right in the recipe, but I tried it anyway. And I was right. I barely mix the dough with a spatula, looked like a solid bread though. So very hard. Then I added more eggs to the mixture, mix some more, and finally the result is acceptable. But of course I’m always looking for a perfect recipes :)

Ingredients:

  • 200g flour
  • 50g butter
  • 200ml water
  • 2 eggs
  • pinch of salt
  • sugar
  • ground cinnamon

How to:

  1. Put butter and water in a pot over medium heat. Cook until the butter melts.
  2. Add flour and salt in. Mix well. Take off from the heat.
  3. Keep stirring until the mixture cooled down.
  4. Add eggs. Mix well.
  5. Get 3 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp ground cinnamon, mix well. Set aside.
  6. In a preheated deep fryer, test if the oil is at the right temperature. Put a tiny amount of the churros in the oil, if it floats right away then you’re good to go. The oil should be around 165 to 180 C.
  7. Place the dough in a piping bag with big star nozzle.
  8. Pipe around 7 to 10cm long and fry it right away.
  9. Cook until it has nice golden brown colour and take off from the oil.
  10. While they still warm, place them in the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Make sure the churros covered in the sugar.

for chocolate sauce

  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 50ml cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp caster sugar (I like it sweet :P)
  • 1 tsp unsalted butter

how to:

  1. Heat the cream, sugar and vanilla until it reached the boiling point.
  2. Add chocolate and butter. Mix well.

Eat the churros while they still warm. I suggest to make the chocolate sauce first. Give it a try and tell me what you think :)
