Servings: 4

Cooking Time:  50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 oz unsalted butter
  • 6 3/4 fl oz water
  • 8 3/4 oz plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 10 1/8 fl oz double cream
  • 1 vanilla pod, split
  • 5 1/3 oz dark chocolate
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 3/4 oz caster sugar for dusting
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Preparation

To make the dough

  1. Melt the unsalted butter over a medium heat, then add the water and bring to the boil.
  2. Once boiled, whisk together with the plain flour and salt to make a smooth paste. The finished paste should slowly drop from the whisk; if the mixture is too dry, add up to 3 tablespoons of warm water to loosen the mixture slightly.
  3. Cover with cling film and place in the fridge to rest for 30 minutes.

To make the chocolate sauce

  1. To make the spiced chocolate break the chocolate into a heatproof bowl; heat the double cream in a saucepan with the vanilla seeds from the pod and the pod.
  2. Add the chocolate and stir until the heat from the hot cream has melted the chocolate completely. Then pour into a serving bowl.

To prepare the sugary coating

Mix caster sugar and some ground cinnamon on a plate to roll the churros through once cooked.

To make the churros

  1. Spoon the churros paste into a sturdy piping bag fitted with star nozzle.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fat fryer or heavy bottomed pan to 180°C (360°F).
  3. Deep fry the churros a few at a time: pipe out 3-4 inch lengths directly into the hot oil and deep fry for approximately 4 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
  4. Remove the crispy churros with a slotted spoon and drain any excess oil.
  5. Place the drained churros directly onto the plate of sugar and cinnamon and coat generously while they are still warm.
