The most easy gluten free churros... Ever!

by - February 20, 2016

I've got a terrible sweet tooth, and I'm a sucker for churros any day. Miles has never had churros before  and I simply couldn't have that!

So after scouring the net, researching how these crunchy sticks of amazing were made. I decided to give it a go and make us some churros... Gluten free style.

You will need: 

- 1 cup of water

- 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar

- 2 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil

- 1 cup gluten free flour

- a shake of cinnamon

- a sprinkle of more sugar

- oil (for frying)

- chocolate spread (for dipping)


1. Put the water, sugar, salt and tablespoons of oil into a saucepan and bring to the boil.

2. Remove from the heat and put the flour into the water mixture then stir until it forms a sticky ball.

3. Add some oil to a deep saucepan, or a wok until it is about 2 1/2 inches deep. Heat up until ready to fry.

4. Put the sticky flour and water mixture into a piping bag with a large star nossle at the tip (my nossle wasn't very big and it made smaller churros which where just as tasty).

 5.  When the oil is warm enough to make a tiny bit of the churro mixture bubble in it, it is ready to use. Pipe the churros into the oil using a pair of scissors to snip the end of the churro when it is at the length you are happy with.  

6. Once the churros turn a golden brown colour in the oil, they are ready to come out. Place the churros on a plate lined with kitchen paper to drain and repeat the cooking process until all the churro mixture is used.

 7. Now sprinkle with a little more sugar and some cinnamon and they're ready to serve. Yummy!
