A Wife Of Noble Character

My first taste of churros was in an amusement park in Korea. It was utterly delicious because the churros was crisp and warm, and the weather was freezing cold in December. After the trip, I have been on a look out for churros.

Recently, I have also eaten very nice churros at a cafe in a park. I always believe that in order to cook good food, one has to try the food first before you attempt to cook it yourself. So, having tried good churros, I searched for a recipe. I found this recipe from Martha Stewart website.  Martha Stewart's recipes are tried and tested by many, and usually with much success.

While my churros turned out less crisp than expected, the taste didn't disappoint. Churros are best served warm and  be eaten as soon as they are fried. I wish I have done a better job piping the batter. There are quite uneven in length and colour. It will be good if I have someone to help me turn the churros while I pipe the batter into the hot oil.

serves 6

1 stick unsalted butter
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 large eggs
Vegetable oil, for frying
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting


  • In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup water,butter,sugar,and salt; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, and sift in flour, stirring for 1 minute.
  • Transfer flour mixture to bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. On low speed, add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until incorporated after each addition;spoon mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a large open-star tip.
  • Heat 4 to 5 inches oil in a large Dutch-oven until it registers 325 degrees on a deep fry thermometer. Holding pastry bag a few inches above the oil, squeeze out batter, snipping off 4 inch lengths with a knife or kitchen shears(kitchen shears) Fry, flipping once, until deep golden brown all over, about 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer churros to a paper towel-lined baking sheet to drain.
  • Roll churros in confectioners' sugar. Serve immediately with Chocolate Dipping Sauce.
Note: I made half recipe

3 oz bittersweet chocolate
1/2 cup cream


Combine cream and glucose in a small saucepan set over medium heat;bring to a simmer. Add chocolate, stirring until chocolate melts to combine. Serve on side.
