Hello, guys!!! Hear me in this... I think you will be shocked too... I am actually in hysteria and in my peak of utter anxiety.... WHY????
BECAUSE COSTCO IS NOT SELLING CHURRO RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT.... with this corona virus, what else can be worst.
BUT IT IS ALL FOR SAFETY, SO It's all good. I GUESS I JUST HAVE TO MAKE MY OWN CHURRO. But how do you make Churro btw?

So I was browsing the internet and tried this recipe from Cooking Classy. I was worried /hesitant about the recipe, since I did not see baking powder nor baking soda in it. How will I get a fluffy Churro without those? I PUSHED ON ANYWAY...

In fact, I was in cloud nine, specially that it was gone in 2 seconds... I was famous in my household for a bit 🙂
And did you watch the video, how easy it is to make???? Now I am passing the torch to you... But read the tips below first.
There are tips that I have to share with you, though in order to make this Churro successfully.
- Make it in small batch. I was so excited to get done with cooking and frying and was very anxious to eat the finish product - I dump almost the whole batter in the pan. It was a no, no. It will change the temperature of the oil. The end product was soggy Churro. So the next batch.
- I cooked about 5 and maintain a temperature to about 250.
- And did you watch the video, how easy it is to make???? Now I am passing the torch to you...
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, diced into small cubes
- 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup all-purpose flour (scoop and level to measure)
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
- 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Heat 2 cups oil in a large size pot and let the temperature reach at 350 F. Maintain this temperature when cooking your Churro
For the coating, mix together cinnamon and sugar in a shallow plate and set aside.
In a medium sized saucepan, melt butter in a low heat and add in water, sugar, and let boil in low heat. Add the flour and mix until you will for into a smooth batter.
Transfer batter into a mixing bowl, and let it sit for 10 minutes just to cool the batter a bit to not scald the egg. Add the egg and vanilla and mix in medium speed. There will be lumps at first, but eventually the mixture will loosen up and turns smooth. Use a spatula to mix batter to get rid of lumps. You want the batter to be loose so that it will smoothly pipe.
Transfer batter into a piping bag with a 2D tip.
Carefully release/pipe batter into a preheated oil about 3-6 inch long and fry until golden brown
Transfer churro into a paper towel and brown the rest of the batter.
Roll churro into the cinnamon and sugar mixture and this is best serve when HOT.
