How To Make Homemade Churros

via Gemma Stafford, Bigger Bolder Baking

1. preheat the oven to 400F (200C). Place two baking sheets on top of each other to bake the churros. Line parchment paper and set it aside.

2. In a medium saucepan, add water, brown sugar, salt, and butter. Place over medium-high heat.

3. Heat until butter is melted and the mixture starts to simmer and whisk in the flour. Continue whisking until there are no flour lumps and a dough ball has formed.

4. Now, using a wooden spoon, stir the dough around your pot and cook it for about a minute over LOW heat.

The mixture will clump and pull away from the sides of the pan. Remove from heat and set it aside.

5. In a jug, combine eggs and vanilla and whisk together.

6. Using your wooden spoon incorporate a little of your egg mix into your dough. Stir and mash, breaking up the dough until loosened.

7. Stir well until eggs are combined. The mixture should have the appearance of mashed potatoes. Continue adding eggs until incorporated.

8. Transfer your dough to a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle.

9. Pipe dough into long churros on the parchment-covered pans. Pipe them so they are nice and thick. You can achieve this by putting pressure on the bag, and piping slowly.

Leave about 2 inches of space between the churros.
