We were introduced to these yummy sticks via an online game my son was enjoying and where Cinco de Mayo is an event they celebrate with great respect.

Churros in the UK

After some research, trial & error we've agreed this recipe satisfies the terrible 'want more' grumble and helps to keep an eye on the UK's guidance for a healthier nation! They are traditionally piped from star shaped nozzels making them ridged in appearance, I found that stiffening the dough a little enabled them to be gently hand rolled, working around the necessity for a piping bag and additional washing up!


This quantity makes about 10 x 10cm churros, double or triple it at your leisure :)
Larder ingredients involve water, sugar, salt, vanilla essence, oil, flour and cinnamon
