These Easy Churros & Chocolate sauce are a favourite of so many people for good reason. Eaten warm and dipped in sauce these Easy Churros are like hot pencil shaped doughnuts and they are amazing
Yes Churros are pretty much long skinny doughnuts but 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.
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 they can roll them in cinnamon flecked sugar. They are also pretty good for a crowd too.
