This is Zach’s specialty! I was a little nervous the first time he said that he was going to make Churros. Just hearing the word……Churros, my first thought was …….too hard! Not so, I quickly found out! All of my boys are super at hard tasks anyways, why should I worry! Zach was very successful on the first try, just like a pro!
10 Cups Oil for for Frying
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Cup Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Water
2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
Mixture for rolling the Churros in:
1/3 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Cinnamon
Wilson Piping Bag
Piping Tip 1M
1-Pour the oil in a large pan and turn it on medium low to start warming it up.
2-Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Sugar, Flour, Baking Powder, and Salt.
3-Combine the Cinnamon and Sugar (bottom of the recipe list). Use more if needed.4-Combine water and Liquid Coconut Oil into a saucepan. Bring these to a boil.5-Carefully pour the boiling liquid mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients and mix with a hand blender until it is blended well. At this point your oil should be heated up enough to deep fry the batter. 6-After blended, add your egg and vanilla. We also wrapped a cookie sheet with tinfoil to place your Churros on after they are cooked and dipped in cinnamon and sugar. This makes for easy clean up when you are all finished.
6-Place your 1M tip inside of the piping bag and cut off the plastic end of the bag, just enough so the tip won’t come through the end of the bag. Spoon your batter into the bottom of the piping bag, filling it up, but not to the very top or the batter will be coming out of the top.
7-Squeeze a straight line of batter (7 to 8 inches long) into the heated oil. The best way to remove the batter from the tip when you are squeezing it out is to simply swipe it with a knife, or just swipe your finger along the end of the tip. Have your tongs ready to gently straighten out the churro as it is cooking. As you see it browning you will watch it and roll it over gently to brown the other side.8-Have your cinnamon and sugar mixture ready to place your cooked Churros in. Once it is done and placed in there, you’ll need to quickly sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over it. The oil is what it will be sticking to, so don’t wait for any cooling to happen. Roll the churro over and sprinkle the other side as well.
9-Churros are best served warm. YUM!
