Thermomix Churros Recipe

Thermomix Churros Recipe 

Do you know churros? They are Spanish fried sweets in the shape of a U or stick, typical of the Iberian Peninsula.

They are so popular that, as with crepes in France, you find several stalls frying churros on the street. A sweet street food worth trying!

The base is very simple and with the Thermomix they prepare quickly. As per local tradition, they are delicious dipped in hot chocolate. ;-). In Italy we use the word PUCCIATI. It's not really an official term, but it gives a good idea and everyone understands what it means. In English, what popular term do you use to mean dipping a cookie or cake in a liquid like milk or hot chocolate?

Tips



When you put the mixture in the syringe (churrera) or in the pastry bag, put it little by little and let it go down well, so that there is no air left inside.

If you prefer, you can make lots of 10/15 cm long sticks.
