Here comes Churros...


My Churros
I have been longing to try the churros. Alhamdulillah, with Atikah's (my eldest) help, I finally had the opportunity to make it in our home kitchen. The process was pretty simple. With a simple instruction, Atikah managed to do it on her own.

Here come the c&p recipe that I used. Its taken from the Allrecipe website. It is such a help.

1 cup water
2 1/2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 quarts oil for frying
1/2 cup white sugar, or to taste
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1.In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine water, 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in flour until mixture forms a ball.
2.Heat oil for frying in deep-fryer or deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Pipe strips of dough into hot oil using a pastry bag. Fry until golden; drain on paper towels.
3.Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon. Roll drained churros in cinnamon and sugar mixture.

However, I made some adjustment to it. We reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 for each batch. And we did not roll the fried churros into the cinnamon and sugar mixture. However, I prepared the butterscotch sauce as a dip. And instead of transferring it into a piping back, I let the dough slightly warm and form the churros using my hand and use a fork to create the effect. Extra work but worth doing when you get what you want.

The butterscotch sauce:

25g butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of milk
Heat the saucepan. Melt the butter and sugar.
Then, add the milk. 
The mixture might turn to solid form when milk is added. Keep on stirring until it dissolve.
It's delicious and worth making. I made it two days in a row.
