    Serves: 10 

    • 68g lard (pork fat)
    • 240ml water
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 125g plain flour

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. In a medium sauce pot, bring lard, water and salt to a boil.
    2. Next add the flour and mix until the mixture starts to pull away from the sides of the pot, and creates a film.
    3. Remove the pot from the heat and immediately add to the bowl of a kitchen aid mixer with a paddle attachment.
    4. Mix on a low speed until it has cooled to just above room temperature.
    5. Add all the eggs and mix until the batter is smooth and combined.
    6. Transfer the batter to a piping bag with a large star tip (#7 tip) and you are ready to fry.
    7. In a bowl combine the sugar and cinnamon, set aside till the end.
    8. Fill another sauce pot with about one gallon of oil; use an oil thermometer to bring the oil to 180 C (350 degrees F).
    9. Pipe the churro batter into the hot oil. 3-inch churros work well.
    10. Fry till golden brown, then pull them out of the fryer using a slotted spoon, and toss in the sugar and cinnamon mixture.
