Chocolate con Churros

Of course, after my trip to Spain, I had to give you the recipe for churros! Easy to make and for a modest cost, you can enjoy it. At the same time, I put you my recipe for thick hot chocolate, the one in which we dip the churros to push the sin to the end… 

Why a churro recipe, when you can often find simple proportions with measuring cups? Because I find it too random. And finally, the proportion of water is important in the recipe: too much water and the churros will swell under the effect of the steam and will end up deformed and very airy, not enough water and the churros will be very hard with an interior like dry breadcrumbs. The ratio I give you here gives you a perfect result: churros that hold together and a soft interior. I don’t use eggs, sugar or milk. Just water and flour and the result will please all food lovers (at least, I hope so!).

Recipe for churros:

ATTENTION: FRYING=DANGER! (see the comments where two people had an explosion!)

-150g of flour
-180g of water
-a little salt!
-a pan of hot oil

The “Chocolate”:
-15 to 20g of cornstarch
-50g of sugar
-200ml of water
-400ml of milk 
-120g of dark chocolate
-1 teaspoon of instant coffee (optional)

Here are the ingredients for the churros. I think this is the cheapest dessert ever!

Bring the water to a boil with a little salt.

Pour over the flour all at once.

Mix immediately with a lot of elbow grease. It’s ready!

Here is the long awaited object! The Churro machine. From the brand… Bernar (without the “d” and I’m not kidding!).

Put all the dough in the machine.

Start screwing and the dough comes out by itself. When the oil is hot, make churros of the desired size and cut them with a knife. Before cutting, I unscrew a little, just to release the pressure so that the dough does not come out too much.

When the underside begins to brown, turn them over.

Here we see a giant churro!

When they are cooked, put them on a paper towel. Ready to be devoured… Just sprinkle a little sugar on top.

If we want to pad our hips a little more, we can do a “chocolate”. 
Put the cornstarch and sugar in a saucepan. Add a little water to dissolve the cornstarch.

Then add the remaining water and milk. You can add instant coffee for a full-bodied chocolate!

Put on low heat and bring to a boil. 

The mixture will thicken. It’s time to add the chocolate! I had chocolate shavings that I had made for the “black forest”, but you can use chocolate cut into small pieces.

Boil for 5 minutes. 

Let cool for 15 minutes, mix well with a whisk and serve in cups. Dip the churros in it with relish!
