- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup full-cream milk
- ½ cup water
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 egg white
In a saucepan, add ½ cup of milk, ½ cup of water and a pinch of salt. Heat over medium flame until it starts to boil.
Sift 1 cup of flour into a small bowl; then, add the flour to the saucepan with the milk and water. Cook the flour in the saucepan for one and a half minutes over medium heat.
Remove the saucepan from the heat, place the dough in a bowl and then add an egg white to the mixture. Keep stirring. You can knead the dough with your hands but be careful not to burn yourself.
Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
Pour plenty of mild olive oil (> 200 ml) in a 9 inch frying pan and put it over medium heat for 8/9 minutes until it reaches 356°F ( 180°C ).
Once the oil is hot, load the dough into a churro maker. Then, pipe lines about 4″ long.
Fry the churros for 3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Total time in the pan: 6 minutes approx.
Remove the churros from the pan with a skimmer and place them on a plate with kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil.
In a small bowl, add 100 grams of sugar and coat the freshly made churros in. Et voilà… you have made delicious churros for breakfast or afternoon snack!
