Churros Recipe

Search the Site:

In Spain a churros recipe is normally served accompanied by a cup of thick creamy chocolate - as in "chocolate con churros". I suppose strictly speaking they are not a dessert but we had to include them as they are part of the Spanish way of life. There are "churreria" stands in most towns, where you can watch the great rings of paste being squeezed into a vat of boiling olive oil, and they're ever present at ferias, markets and any special events. They're often eaten for breakfast ....... all through the day...... and they're great after a night of partying!
Here is our favourite recipe. Make sure that you have a strong piping bag, (and a strong pair of hands) as the paste is quite stiff to squeeze out.
