Churros

There are many recipes for churros, I found THIS online and it is supposed to be an authentic Spanish recipe it resembles choux pastry and THIS recipe without eggs is a Mexican version.

Churros for us is the amusement park snack from the US and from the Korean ski slope, how it has ended up in the ski slopes of South Korea, I beats me.
Makes one platefull
Oil for frying
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)

Heat the oil in a fryer or fying pan

Combine water, butter and salt in a sauce pan and bring to a boil,  stir in siftet flour. Stir vigorously over low heat until mixture forms a ball, about 1 minute, remove from heat. Beat inn the eggs one by one and continue beating until smooth soft mixture.

Spoon mixture into cake decorators’ tube with large star tip, Squeeze 4-inch strips of dough into hot oil.

Fry 3 or 4 strips at a time until golden brown, turning once, about 2 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels.

Make a sugar and cinnamon mix and roll the churros in sugar or dump the sugar on the pile of churros, like the pros.

Note: Churros in Spain are made without cinnamon mixed with the sugar, but the cinnamon adds an extra nice flavor.
