It happens sometimes you want dessert, but that is not too sweet, not too long, not too complicated! This does not happen, you say. Spaniards know this recipe and use it everywhere.
Churros (or churros) - a traditional Spanish dessert made of choux pastry, which are fried or deep-fried, or baked (lighter version). And, if in Italy the palm of fissile desserts tiramisu, panna cotta and the other, the churros in Spain - this is really a dessert at every step. Those who have been in Spain say that it is sold on the street mobile outlets, cafes and restaurants; it eats both adults and children.
How can you not be tempted and do not try!
As I have already said - at the heart of choux pastry, it is easier than it seems. The main technology to comply. To start over medium heat melt the butter with water until smooth.
As soon as a homogeneous mass, we sleep flour. The preferred silicone you will wield a spatula, by the way, I do highly recommend to buy it, be surprised how it helps. Bombarded with the flour and mix well, make sure that the flour is completely mixed with oil, without lumps. After a minute or two will start to roll the dough into a ball, keep stirring it until it is very smooth, and on the walls of the saucepan will start to form a film.
Get out the dough from the fire (let cool 3-5 minutes) and one type eggs. Eggs in the hot test may start to curl, so either stir well and fast (especially the first egg), or wait for dough cooling is 5 minutes, and a little longer. At first, the mixture begins to flake, do not worry, just have a good stir paddle. A homogeneous mass, add the next egg. At the end of - the spoon sugar.
The finished dough is best to shift into a pastry bag. The nozzle take "a star" - a classic, and later realize why it is. If the nozzle is not - use the round. If there is a pastry bag - take any package for food and cut the corner. Impose the dough in the bag easier just by wrapping it around the neck of the glass.
On parchment otsazhivayut long stripes test. You can make a horseshoe - also the characteristic shape of churros.
Bake at 200 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Until such time as the stripes become golden. While the first batch of baked - Prepare a wide plate flanges, mix it in 50 grams of sugar and a spoonful or two of cinnamon. There can be used any spices, both sweet and sharp. Once removing churros - collapses once each in the sugar mixture and let cool completely.
When slightly cooled churros - they can serve. They are often eaten with some sauces - chocolate, fruit jams, berry jam and so on. Dessert is very simple, fast and delicious. This does not eclairs, we are used to, due to the fact that the sticks rather thin, they are not empty inside, and soft. With that, the outside is a good-baked crust.
