Serves: 8 

  • 500ml water
  • 500g plain flour
  • 3 dessertspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1L olive oil, for frying
  • caster sugar, for dusting

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the water, 3 dessertspoons olive oil, salt and baking powder. Bring to the boil. Once foaming, remove from heat and pour directly over the flour in a bowl. Stir well with a wooden spoon until you have a stiff dough.
  2. Fill a churro pump with the dough; press to remove any pockets of air.
  3. Heat 1 litre of olive oil in a wok or deep frying pan. Pump out the dough in 15-20cm lengths. Fry in the hot oil till golden. Fry in batches so that the pan isn't overcrowded.
  4. Remove churros from the oil and drain on a piece of kitchen paper. Place on a serving platter and sprinkle with caster sugar. Enjoy with coffee or hot chocolate.

I'm glad I only made half the recipe. It was terrible. It tasted like crunchy olive oil sticks. I will be looking for another recipe. - 02 Mar 2015
