My kids never get to taste churros their entire life.
Yes, blame the mother.
I made churros last week and they were surprised that it was something sweet and exciting to eat.
All along, my two big girls thought churros was a chicken dish.
Blame me, blame me please… Churros is never my favorite and I rarely buy any. I came across the recipe a few weeks ago and I thought it’s easy to make so I tried to make one the other day.
The moment I put it on the table I suddenly felt a strong wind and blew all the churros straight to my children’s mouth and there was barely left for Tatay to taste.
Today, before they left for school they asked if I can make churros again for meryenda.
I said, why not.
It was fun and easy to make so I thought I share how to make churros with everyone.
Are you ready?
Here yah go!
Heat water, salt and butter to a rolling boil in a sauce pan. Add flour all at once and stir vigorously over low heat until the mixture forms a ball (about 1 minute). Remove from heat. Beat eggs all at once until smooth and then add to saucepan stirring the mixture until smooth and shiny.
It should look like this:
Transfer the churros to the paper towel-lined plate to drain for 2 minutes, then roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Repeat the frying and coating process with the remaining dough.
Make the chocolate dip: Melt semisweet chocolate in a double boiler or in a microwave. Add milk and whisk until thick, frothy and smooth. Serve with churros.
