Delicious Churros

Butter melted 50 gm
Vanilla essence ½ tsp
Flour 250 gm
Baking powder 1 tsp
Salt a pinch
Oil to fry
Water 350 ml

Ingredients for Sauce

Dark chocolate 200 gm
Cream 100 ml
Milk 100 ml
Golden syrup 3 tbsp
Vanilla essence ½ tsp

Ingredients for Cinnamon Sugar

Caster sugar 100 gm
Cinnamon 2 tsp
Put 350ml boiling water into a jug and add the melted butter and vanilla essence. Sift the flour and baking powder into a big mixing bowl with a big pinch of salt. Make a well in the centre, then pour in the contents of the jug and very quickly beat into the flour with a wooden spoon until lump-free. Rest for 10-15 mins. Put all the chocolate sauce ingredients into a pan and gently melt together, stirring occasionally until you have a smooth shiny sauce. Keep warm on a low heat. Fill a large deep saucepan with oil. mix the caster sugar and cinnamon together. Fit a star nozzle to a piping bag. Fill with the rested dough, then pipe 2-3 strips directly into the pan, snipping off each dough strip with a pair of kitchen scissors. Fry until golden brown and crisp, then remove with a slotted spoon and drain on the kitchen paper-lined tray. Carry on cooking the rest of the dough in batches, sprinkling the cooked churros with some cinnamon sugar as you go. Once you’ve cooked all the churros, toss with any remaining cinnamon sugar and serve with the chocolate sauce, for dipping.
