Have you ever tasted authentic Spanish churros? If not, put them on your bucket list or make these homemade churros to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings right away!
Churros are a typical Spanish dessert that can be bought and enjoyed all over Spain. If you don’t find them in cafeterias, you’ll find stalls selling them on the streets, during fiestas or in special shops called Churrerías.
Imagine deep fried choux pastry dipped in hot chocolate…mmmm…delicious! Now I have to say that my favorite churros come from small stalls. They are large, thick and filling.
My word of advice – if you ever get to visit Spain, try to find a place where you can buy thick creamy hot chocolate (almost like a pudding) and you’ll be in for a real treat!
By the way, the history of churros is interesting. There are two theories about churros history. If you know which one is the official story, let me know! I am dying to know!
You know, it was pretty difficult to find an authentic Spanish churro recipe. I came across so many different churro recipes that I had actually no idea which one was the authentic one.
So I am bringing you my version of a recipe for homemade churros. They might not be the authentic Spanish churros but they taste pretty close to the ones we tasted on our travels.
And you know what? Making churros from scratch is so easy! Just follow my recipe and you’ll be in for a treat!
