Have you been abroad and tried this sweet delight? Well return to those holiday memories and make churros at home. These sugary fried dough treats are perfect for a dessert or snack. They are really cheap to make with only 2 main ingredients. To top it all off we've drizzled over an easy chocolate coffee sauce.
Preheat fryer to 170°C.
Measure all of the chocolate sauce ingredients into a saucepan and heat very slowly until melted and smooth…. over a pan or in a microwave. Keep warm whilst making the churros.
Sieve both flours and salt into a bowl and make a well in the centre.
Whisk the olive oil and boiling water together and slowly pour into the well, beating furiously so that there are no lumps but you have a thick paste.
Scoop all of the batter into a piping bag with a star nozzle and then pipe strips carefully into the hot oil to fry. Keep the nozzle close to the oil and snip off the batter with a pair of scissors when they are long enough.
Squeeze enough into the pan to make a few at a time and fry them for 3 minutes until golden brown.
Lift them out of the oil and drain on paper towels before rolling in the sugar whilst still hot.
Serve in a cone, drizzled with the chocolate sauce. Makes 12
