Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter cubed
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Bob's Red Mill 1:1 Gluten Free Baking Flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Vegetable oil

For the Easy Chocolate Sauce

  • 3 ounces dark chocolate chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  • Heat 1-2 inches vegetable oil in a deep skillet over medium high heat.
  • In a separate large saucepan, heat water, butter, sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low.
  • Stir in the flour and stir constantly until combined and mostly smooth. Turn off heat.
  • Pour flour mixture into a stand mixer and allow to sit/cool for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add egg and vanilla and mix on high until smooth.
  • Transfer mixture to a piping bag with a star tip.
  • Add cinnamon and sugar to a shallow bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.
  • Once the oil heats to 375F (use a candy thermometer), you're ready to pipe the mixture in to make the churros!
  • Carefully pipe a 5-6 inch length into the oil, using a sharp knife or scissors to cut off from the star tip.
  • Allow to fry 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
  • Allow to dry for about 1 minute, then roll in the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
  • Repeat with the rest of the dough, frying 3 at a time.

For the Chocolate Sauce:

  • Place the chopped chocolate in the bottom of a heat safe bowl.
  • Heat the heavy cream over medium high heat until starting to bubble. Pour the cream over the chocolate and stir to combine/melt the chocolate.
  • Serve with the warm churros.
  • Enjoy!
