omgg. sorry I haven't posted for such a long time! but we had to move back, and then school was starting the next day.. Very chaotic! Anyways, Every fourth Sunday of the month, I bake stuff for the mentally ill. I've been doing this for like half a year now. I do it at Perrin's a coffee shop in Beverly Hills. I started baking there because the owner is my mom's friend and she makes food for the people. I think she's been doing it for like 6 years.. (wow) yaah. so. I just got the recipe from google. I picked this one because the link title was "A Churro Recipe To Die For". btw, I doubled the recipe but it was still not alot. But the recipe below is the original one (one I didn't double). I think its because when it was boiling I reached for the camera and alot flowed out.. So I decreased alot on the flour and such. But it was still delicious! So if you don't mess up I'm sure it'll taste fantastic!


brown sugar, water, and salt

Put in butter

Bring to boil

Boiling process done!

Add flour~

Kinda thick. and yucky looking!

Egg & vanilla mixture


Got kinda like rubber and glue so I used a potato masher.


Shake in cinnamon sugar!

Finished~ Doesn't it look yummy? :]

Scrumptious Churro Recipe; makes 2 dozen, 4 inch churros

1 cup water
2 Tbs brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup butter
1 cup white flour
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 to 1 tsp. ground cinnamon, depending on taste

Preheat 1 1/2 to 2 inches of vegetable oil in a 10 to 12 inch frying pan to 375 degrees F. In a separate dish mix the 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
In a 3 qt. sauce pan add the water, brown sugar, salt, and butter and heat to a good boil. Remove from the heat and add the flour. Stirring in the flour will take some muscle. Mix it in until well blended.
In a separate bowl, mix the eggs and vanilla together and then add this mixture to the flour mixture. Stir until well blended and all the egg is completely mixed in.
Fill your decorating tool with the churro recipe dough and attach the largest star tip you have.
Test your oil by placing a small amount of dough in it. The dough should bubble up right away or that means the oil is not hot enough and a soggy churro is on the way.
Once the oil is hot enough, squeeze some dough (with decorator) into the oil about 4 inches long. I used my finger to release the dough from the decorator. Careful not to burn yourself. You should be able to cook 4 or 5 churros at a time. Cook them about 1 minute and turn them over with a slotted spoon. Cook an additional minute or two. You're looking for that nice golden brown color.
Remove the churros with the slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel-covered plate to absorb excess grease.
While still warm, roll each churro into the dish with the sugar and cinnamon until coated.


The churros tasted so awesome! I liked the lightly burnt ones more than the not burnt ones because the not burnt ones were kinda soggy inside.. And in the not burnt, soggy ones, you could kinda taste vanilla.. But I think that was because I messed up earlier in the boiling process. Also, I rolled alot of cinnamon sugar on it so it was very sweet. I liked this because at El Pollo Loco (the only place I've had a churro from), they don't put alot of cinnamon sugar on it.. And its very soggy. So I liked mine better. And let me tell you! It is very hard to fry a churro so it's not soggy, nor burnt. Good luck! :)
