These Easy Churros & Chocolate sauce are a favourite of so many people for good reason. Eaten warm and dipped in sauce they are like hot pencil shaped doughnuts, and they are amazing. You can make them at home very easily
Yes Churros are pretty much long skinny doughnuts. the best thing is the batter is a little more basic.
I have an incredible soft spot for doughnuts. I just can’t resist them. Years ago when I was an apprentice each morning we’d make cakes and scones and tarts and pies before all the customers piled in for morning tea. Right at the last moment we would start doughnut production dunking hundreds of them and rolling in cinnamon sugar. Those doughnuts were a yeasted batter but these churros are much more simple and that makes them very quick to make.
Churros are Doughnuts in a hurry
The best thing about Churros is they are long and when you dip them you get a lot of sauce!
It may also be a good one to make for the kids these holidays for a bit of a treat. It probably isn’t one for them to actually cook because of the hot oil, but they can crack eggs and stir . Later they can roll the Churros in cinnamon flecked sugar. They make the best crowd or party dessert at a stand up function. Try them!

Make sure the batter isn't too hot when you add the eggs
If your batter is very thin and runny you will need to add a little extra flour
Make sure the oil is at 180 C before you pipe in your churros or they will soak up too much oil.
