Churros - Cinnamon Sugar


Recently I tried Churros from Churros Factory after seeing it many times on FB shared by various frens on the Churros and commented it is nice, delicious blah blah. But it's hard to spot a Churros shop when you are walking or shopping at non-town area. 

Until recently, a fren tried this Churros from Churros Factory that got me spurred as it is not in town, considered a mall I am likely to pop by too. So coincidence, last Sunday Hubby wanted to get something from I12 and so I had my first bite of Churros. 

So here I go, I am trying this recipe from HowToCookThat.net. It has a video link as well, making it easy for first timers who want to try making it at home. Very simple and straightforward recipe as well.


I managed to make a big plate, experimenting with different shapes and sizes. And I piped some on baking paper stored in airtight containers and some balanced batter in the piping bag closed in a ziplock bag. Wanna try if I can prep batter nite b4 for fast frying the next day for party at home.

I replaced butter with veg oil. I ended up crispy outside and a slightly soft and moist center. Overall, I am satisfied with this recipe and my kids love it too. (Do note, it is softer than the Churros from Churros Factory) Since there are many versions, I might try some other variations as well SOON! 

Churros (adapted and modified slightly from HowToCookThat.net)

Dear Priscilla,

I couldn't find your email so am commenting here to share with you about the #SgEatWithUs movement and invite you to be a part of our upcoming carnival.

#SgEatWithUs is a grounds-up initiative that invites Singaporeans and their friends to share home-cooked dishes with the community. We see home-cooked food is a key ingredient to bring Singaporeans and Singapore residents together by extending the family bond with the different communities to build a stronger and united Singapore and to achieve the #SgEatWithUs vision of ‘Our Family, Our Community, Our Singapore’.

As part of SG50 celebrations, a series of pop-up carnivals is organised to celebrate the spirit of #SgEatWithUs. Our second carnival "The Good Old Days" will be held on 29 March 2015, at the National Library Building Plaza. We would like to invite you to join us at our upcoming carnival as a #SgHomeChef by cooking/baking a dish that reminds you of "The Good Old Days". It may be a dish that reminds you of your childhood, or perhaps something that you learnt to cook/bake from your parents or grandparents.

More details and sign up information can be found at http://www.tinyurl.com/sghomechef-c2. You can also visit our facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/sgeatwithus.

In addition, we would also like to invite you to share with us your recipes (blog links are welcome) on local food via our facebook page. Simply post it to our page's wall and we will share it with our facebook community.

We look forward to your participation and support in our community movement!

Regards,
Theresa
