Churros Recipe Card


The cuisine of The United States is a rich amalgamation of peoples, religions and cultures thanks to the immigrants from different parts of the world.  They brought with them their local ingredients as well as cooking styles with them.  Yet amidst all these varieties Chinese and Italian cuisines dominate.  
During the 18th and 19th centuries, the Americans developed a number of new foods.  What characterised the American cuisine is the adaptation of a fusion of multiple ethnic cooking styles. During this period food production and presentation became more industrialised.

Ingredients for Churros Recipe

  • Butter 150 grams

  • Refined flour (maida) 150 grams

  • Eggs 3

  • Egg yolk 1

  • Orange rind grated 1

  • Oil to deep fry

  • Cinnamon powder 1 tablespoon

  • Castor sugar (caster sugar) 150 grams


Step 1

Cut the butter into pieces and put in a large saucepan with one and a half cups of water. Heat the water gently and then bring to a rolling boil. Sift the flour at least twice and, as soon as the water boils, tip it into the pan all at once.

Step 2

Remove from the heat and beat in the flour. Continue beating until the mixture forms a ball and leaves the sides of the pan clean. Cool a little and then beat in the eggs, the extra yolk and orange rind. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag with a large star nozzle.

Step 3

Pipe it into four inch lengths. Heat sufficient oil in a deep pan and deep-fry the churros, a few at a time, until they are golden brown, turning them once. Drain and place them on an absorbent paper. Mix cinnamon and caster sugar together and roll the churros in this mixture. Serve with some fresh fruit.
