Serves: 10 

  • 68g lard (pork fat)
  • 240ml water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 125g plain flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 600g caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • oil for frying

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.
