hat is crunchy, hollow on the inside, heavily ridged on the outside, often rolled in cinnamon sugar, and best when dipped into a chocolate sauce! Es un churro delicioso, sí señor! Olé!
Churros are traditional Spanish sweet treats, allegedly invented by Spanish shepherds. “What do shepherds have with a dessert?“, one might ask. Well, when shepherds went up high in the mountains, it was impossible to make any baked goods such as bread or something sweet. So, they came up with an idea of this open fire pan-fried delight they could easily make so far away from home. In Spain, churros are very popular snack made by Churreros – specialists for making churros. However, you can enjoy nibbling them in most Hispanic countries, in the US, and also in many European big cities, like Paris, where street vendors sell them in most fares and tourist spots. It is impossible to ignore the inviting scent of freshly fried dough, especially in winter.
Churros are fried until they become crunchy. The distinctive surface of a churro is ridged due to having been piped from a churrera, a syringe with a star-shaped nozzle. Churros may be straight, curled or spirally twisted. So, how to make churros at home? Don’t fear; the dough is exactly like choux pastry! If you have already learned , this is going to be a piece of cake for you!(pun intended) ;) Churros are great when rolled in cinnamon sugar, but if you go an extra mile and make a homemade – well, you can call yourself a Churrero!
