mmmm, donuts, spanish donuts

anyone ever had real, homemade churros? you know, those long, skinny donuts rolled in powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar? you can get them in a lot of mexican restaurants too. so here's the churros recipe i stole from my mother in law. don't tell her i posted this, or else i might get a pan upside my head.


3 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
4 eggs
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons oil

Sift all the dry ingredients together, and set aside

Beat the eggs lightly, then add the milk, vanilla, and oil. Mix completely.

Make a mound of the dry ingredients, and make a well in the middle. Add the liquid ingredients to the well, and slowly work the flour mix into the liquid. After completely mixing the ingredients, return to a bowl, beat lightly to insure complete mixing.

Let the dough rest for at least an hour, covered.

Heat oil in a pan to about 350 degrees. When the oil is ready, pull a chunk of dough off of the ball, and roll and stretch until it is ½ to 1 inch in diameter, and short enough to fit into the pan. Lightly fry the churro, turning it to make sure it is browned lightly on both sides.

Pull the churro from the oil, and drain on paper towels. Roll in powdered sugar, or cinnamon sugar, and enjoy. traditional is the powdered sugar.

there are other recipies for spanish churros out there that use boiling water, etc, to make the dough, and it's piped using a pastry bag. i like these better. this one is an old recipe from mamasita, so that makes it as spanish as it comes.

p.s. eat these dudes nice and warm. if you have too many, share.
