Another recipe that I have been waiting to share with you is churros! My daughter Sara and I were experimenting with churros and tulumba one weekend and found they are very similar!
The tulumba and churros are prepared the same way, and have similar ingredients. The only difference we found really is one is soft and soaked in syrup and the other is sprinkled in sugar and is crispy! We used a large star tip for this, a 1 M tip whereas the tulumba we used a 8B star tip.
We warmed up some Nutella to serve with this, but you don’t really need it, it is so good on its own!
What you will need:
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 and 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- oil for frying
Combine the 1/2 cup sugar and 1 and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon in a bowl and set aside.
Bring water to boil with the two tablespoons of sugar, salt and oil. Remove from heat. Add in flour and stir. Stir in eggs and form into a dough ball while still in the pot.
Heat oil in a large pot, enough to fry the churros. Fill batter into a pastry bag with a large star tip. Once the oil is hot, start to pipe out the churros. You can make them straight or make them in circles or swirls, curvy, however you like.
Brown on both sides, and place on a cookie sheet lined with paper towel to absorb extra oil.
Dip churros into the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
Serve right away! You may serve with melted chocolate or heated Nutella.
