Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 Lemon Zested, yellow part only, avoid white pith.
  • 1/8 tsp Vanilla etract
  • 2 cups All Purpose flour
  • 2 cups vegetables or canola oil
  • 1/2 cup granulates sugar To sprinkle the churros

Instructions

  • In a sauce pan combine the water, salt, butter and lemon zest (vanilla if using) and cook on medium heat.
  • Once it starts boiling, add the flour. Using a wooden spoon, keep stirring! Don’t get distracted because you will have a big ball of dough very soon.
  • Once you have a big ball of dough, place it into your your piping bag (if you don’t have one, just use a Ziploc bag and cut the corner of the bag).
  • In a deep pot heat the oil for frying to 375F (you can also use a fryer). Pipe 5 inch long straight line of dough (or any size you desire…) into the hot oil using the pastry bag fitted with a medium star tip.
  • Note* You can also pipe the dough on a sheet and then fry the churros.
  • Cook until they get a nice golden brown color (Do not overcrowd the oil) . Remove from the pan and place on a plate lined with paper towels to remove the excess oil.
  • Roll drained churros in sugar.
  • Bon profit!
