Making the dough for churros is easy. All you need is flour, baking powder, water, eggs and butter. Also prepare piping bag with star tip - necessary for shaping churros.
First place water, cubed butter and salt into medium saucepan. Remove from the heat, then stir in flour with baking powder, return to the low heat and beat with a wooden spoon until the dough start to pull away from the sides of the saucepan. Remove from the heat, then add eggs, one at a time.
Now, it's time for frying churros. Fill a medium saucepan with sunflower oil (2 - 3cm deep) and heat the oil. Spoon the batter into the piping bag with a star tip. Now, start to pipe churros into the oil. Pipe no more than 3 - 4 churros at the time.
Pipe 6 - 8 long strips directly into the oil, cutting off each strip with small knife. Otherwise, you can pipe strips on the dusted tray lined with baking paper then transfer the using a slotted spoon into the oil. Be careful with hot oil. Fry churros for 2 - 3 minutes until golden and crispy then transfer to the plate lined with kitchen paper to drain. Prepare a bowl with caster sugar and cinnamon and roll each churro after 3 minutes. Enjoy!
The best tip for making churros is medium-sized open star tip - Ateco 824. It produce skinny little churro, but after deep-frying the dough puffs up nicely.
One of the most important parts of making the best churros recipe is being sure that your oil is heated to the correct temperature. You will need to use a thermometer to be sure that you are frying them in oil that is between the recommended 360-365°F. If you use a lower temperature, you run the risk of your churros coming out soggy. If your oil is too hot, you will likely end up with churros with burnt outsides and raw insides.
Churros are traditionally a street snack, so usually they are sold in a cup with a dipping sauce so you can walk around and eat. At home, just pile them on a plate with a little cup of dipping sauce then you can dip and eat!
