Valentine’s Day is coming up. I wanted to share an Eggless Churros recipe for Valentine’s Day and present them with a different look. I decided to make flower shaped ones. They are incredibly easy to make. All it takes is 6 ingredients and about 30 minutes to make these delicious treats. I adapted this recipe from here. I have read many recipes online. Some people say that the traditional churros recipe does not use eggs. I also read that the eggless version tastes like the churros sold by street vendors and at fairs, in Mexico. I am not sure. I haven’t been to Mexico yet. I made this simple eggless version of churros and my kids loved them.
Measuring cup used: 1 cup = 250ml
All purpose flour – 1 cup
Water – 1 cup
Vegetable oil – 2 Tbsp.
Granulated white sugar – 3 Tbsp.
Salt – 1/2 Tsp.
Oil – For deep frying
Piping bag – 1
1M Wilton piping tip
Ingredients for coating churros:
Ground cinnamon – 1 Tsp.
Granulated Sugar(white/brown) – 1/2 cup(You can grind it into a fine powder, optional)
In a small sauce pan, add 2 Tbsp. oil, 3 Tbsp. sugar, 1 cup water and 1/2 Tp. salt. Mix it well. Place the sauce pan on medium heat and bring to a boil.
Turn off the heat. Gradually add the flour and mix it with a spoon/spatula until it forms a smooth dough. Let it cool slightly(around 5-7 minutes).
Place the dough in the piping bag fitted with 1M piping tip. Take a parchment paper and cut it into small squares. We will use them to pipe the roses.
Hold the piping bag on top of the parchment paper and make a rose with the dough. Repeat the process.
Heat the oil (for deep frying) in a wide pan on medium/low heat. Carefully transfer the piped churro dough roses to the hot oil. Fry them in batches of three or four until they look golden. Drain on a plate lined with paper towel.
Add the sugar and cinnamon powder in a Ziploc bag or a small bowl and mix well. While the fried churros are still warm, toss to coat them in the Ziploc bag or the bowl filled with cinnamon and sugar mixture. Serve immediately.
Note:Do not worry, if you do not have a piping bag and piping tip. You can make these churros with a Ziploc bag. I used a Ziploc bag when I made them first time. They look different but taste equally delicious.
Make these easy to make eggless flower shaped churros at home, for a special Valentines’s Day treat!!!!
