Sweeten Up Your Day With This Churros Recipe
This Spanish born deep fried dough treat like many others has made its way from Latin America to the United States. Churro is perfect for party favors first and foremost because who can resist fried dough.
- 2 cups water
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, plus 1/2 cup for rolling
- 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 pinch of salt
- Two eggs, room temperature
- Canola oil for deep-frying
- Dulce de leche sauce (see recipe)
- Chocolate sauce (see recipe)
Directions (Dulche de Leche)
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the water, butter, and the 3 tablespoons sugar. Bring to a boil and cook, staring occasionally, until the butter is completely melted and the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat. Add the flour quickly, all at once. Using sturdy whisk, stare until smooth add the salt. Let rest for two minutes. Then add eggs, one at a time, and stir /mix well.
Place the one 14oz open can of sweetened condensed milk in a saucepot and add cold water to cover by 2 inches. Bring the water to a boil cook for one hour and 45 minutes. Check the water often to make sure it is always covering the can. Also do not let it cook for more than two hours; not only will you over cook the dulce de leche. But you will also run the risk of exploding the care, which I am happy to report, has never happened to me yet. Using pounds occasionally turn the cab over to stare at the milk.
