INSTRUCTIONS

Cinnamon sugar coating:

  • Combine sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl, set aside.

Batter:

  • Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.

Churros:

  • Transfer dough into a piping bag with a 8mm / 1/3" star tip nozzle.
  • Set aside while oil heats.
  • Heat 5cm / 2" oil over medium high in a small pot, until it takes 20 seconds for a small cube of bread to turn golden.
  • Pipe 15cm / 6" lengths of dough into the oil, snipping with scissors (snip close to oil surface to avoid splash).
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden and crisp, rolling occasionally.
  • Remove onto paper towel lined plate to drain.
  • Then roll in sugar.
  • Serve hot with Chocolate Sauce

 

CHOCOLATE SAUCE:

  • Place in a heatproof bowl and microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring in between, until smooth.
  • Set aside for 5 minutes to cool and thicken slightly.
