Prepare to fry the churros by heating 1 to 1 1/2 inches oil in a deep pan to 360 degrees F.
To make churro dough, heat water, butter and salt to rolling boil in 3-quart saucepan; stir in
flour. Stir vigorously over low heat until mixture forms a ball, about 1 minute; remove from the heat. Beat eggs all at once; continue beating until smooth and then add to saucepan while stirring mixture.
Spoon mixture into a piping tube with large star tip. Squeeze 4-inch strips of dough into hot oil. Fry 3 or 4 strips at a time until golden brown, turning once, about 2 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels. Mix the sugar and cinnamon. Roll churros in the cinnamon sugar. Serve with Chocolate Dunking Sauce.
This recipe makes one dozen donuts.
the 5 teaspoons of yeast (2 packets) and a pinch of sugar and stir.
Let stand for about 5 minutes
In a bowl combine:
2 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 cup of warm mashed potatoes (see the bottom of the page)
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 cup of sugar
Then in the bowl add:
The milk mixture (from above) and
2 Tablespoons of oil
Mix the dough well by hand or in a mixer with a dough
hook for 3 minutes.
Prepare your kneading surface by spreading a few
tablespoons of flour on a smooth surface.
Put the dough in the middle of the flour and sprinkle a
little flour on top and on your hands. Knead the dough a few times.
Once the dough has been kneaded, spread it out to be a
half inch thick with your hands or with a rolling pin.
Now it is time to cut out the donuts with donut cutter.
Place the donuts on a floured pan to let rise as you get the oil ready.
Let them rise for a total of ten minutes (it takes about five minutes for the oil to heat up).
