Ever saw something and want to have it right that instant? But it’s too cold to head out cos of the 50km/h winds and below 10 degrees ?
Well. That was me last night. I saw a post on cinnamon sugar churros and just had the cravings for them almost immediately. And nothing was going to stop me from making them. Not even the lack of vegetable oil to fry them. I scurried to the nearest supermarket to get a bottle just so I could fry them in. haha
Trust me, if you love cinnamon sugar churros, you should really try making these cause they were SO EASY! You don’t even need to use a mixer of any kind. Just have a fork, mixing bowl, put everything together and MIX! Don’t get frightened by the sound of deep frying. You really just need a small pot and fill it up to the halfway mark, and heat it up slowly. It’s not that bad really!
Give it a go (: I’m very sure you won’t regret it! Especially if you’re craving for some like I was!
Cinnamon Sugar Churros (adapted from Toasty Biscuit)
2 cups plain flour
1 tbs baking powder
pinch of salt
600ml of boiling water
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tsp vanilla paste
vegetable oil, to fry
cinammon sugar, to dust (just combine caster sugar with ground cinnamon)
1. Fill a deep, heavy based saucepan with vegetable oil. Place on medium-high heat and allow to heat. In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, vanilla paste, water and oil. Mix with a fork and make sure there are no lumps.
2. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag with a star tip. When the oil has reached 170 degrees, pipe 12cm lengths into the oil, using scissors to snip them from the bag. Be careful not to splash the hot oil.
3. Fry until golden brown, strain off excess oil and dust in cinnamon sugar.
Tip : Best to make and eat it hot/warm, but if you made too much, share it with others! They will love you for it. (:
