My Churro Moment of weakness.

My Churro Moment of weakness.

Churros
Much of the U.S. is familiar with churros (cinnamon covered doughnuts in the shape of a stick) as they've begun to appear everywhere from local swap-meets to Disney World. Stale or preprocessed churros are rather typical, (though occasionally you'll find a gas-powered churro cart deep-frying on the spot) leaving many to wonder what the fascination is with this Mexican doughnut. Freshly fried out of the fryer and they're a completely different animal. So when my cravings got the best of me one night, and I stumbled upon some frying oil in the pantry I knew I just had to make a batch. My churro moment of weakness.

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 egg
4 tbsp oil
1/4 cup milk
oil for deep frying
generous amounts of cinnamon
powdered sugar for rolling in when done.

How I did it:
Adding milk to thin it if need be...  I stuck it in a decorating bag with a star tip and squeezed it into a medium hot bath of fried oil for 2-3 minutes... roll in the powder sugar and enjoy.
