[ RECIPE ] Pink Churros






Valentine has arrived and I don't have any plan whatsoever, ... (.cough. single .cough.) So instead of dwelling on something totally unnecessary, I decided to make something. If you follow my Instagram, you know that I do baking for fun ... so yeah, ...

so here it is, Pink Churros!!!

Recipe :
Ingredients :
- 1 cup water
- 5 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 cups oil for frying (corn, peanut, canola, light olive)
- 1 bar of strawberry flavoured Mercolade chocolate or any pink chocolate you can find


Instructions :
  1. Combine water, butter, sugar and salt in a medium pot and bring to boil over medium heat.
  2. Turn off heat and add flour all at once. Stir briskly until a ball forms.
  3. Turn into a large bowl or mixing bowl. Let cool 5 minutes.
  4. Beat eggs with vanilla in a small bowl.
  5. Mix in half the eggs either with a wooden spoon or electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Mix in remaining egg until smooth.
  6. Heat 2 inches of oil to 350ºF.
  7. Set up a piping bag with a ½ inch star tip and fill with half the dough or fill a churrera fitted with a star tip.
  8. Squeeze 3-4 inch lengths of dough into hot oil. Use your non-dominant hand to squeeze and your dominant hand to cut lengths off with scissors or a knife.
  9. Fry 4 churros at a time for 2-3 minutes on each side. Turn them with a slotted spoon.
  10. When golden brown, remove to paper-lined tray to drain.
For Chocolate Dipping :
- Melt the chocolate in pyrex bowl over shimmering water
- After all melt perfectly, place it into small bowl

After you done all these steps, you can arrange your churros in anyway you like it! Have fun!!
