HOMEMADE CHURROS: MEGHAN RIENKS

I recently found out about Meghan Rienks on Youtube a couple months ago. I began binge watching her bakemas episodes and her podcast ” Don’t Blame Me”. She has really amazing content. The bakemas/cooking episodes are silly but are still all about baking cute ass food. Her podcast is awesome to listen to because you get to hear some crazy entertaining stories but also listen to some solid advice. If you guys want to see her blog post for these churros or watch a video of her making them, check them out here!

Let’s just get into the recipe! 🤪

In a medium, pan melt together butter, water, salt, and vanilla. Let it come to a boil.

Slowly add the flour and stir with a wooden spoon quickly. It should come together in a smooth ball. Take off the heat and place the dough into a bowl.

Let it cool for like 10 minutes and add the egg. Again, stir quickly.

Transfer the dough to a piping bag with a star tip.

In a pan begin heating up your oil on medium-high heat. If you are fancy you can measure the temperature to 400 degrees F. I just waited until the oil reacted to a drop of water in the pot. Once it reaches a high temperature bring it down a little bit so it doesn’t fry the churro too quickly.

Next, pipe the churro as long as you want into the oil carefully and cut it with scissors.

Fry until golden brown and let drain on a paper towel.

Before they completely cool, toss them in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.

Enjoy with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, ice cream or whatver you want! I will say these are also best FRESH, you can reheat in the oven but they are best fresh.

I know I took like WAY too many pictures of how they came out in the end but come on, they look delicious.
