Why I Love This Recipe
These are similar to funnel cakes or elephant ears but smaller and easier to make.
Churros is Mexican pastry that is squeezed through a pastry bag, fried in hot oil, and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 1/4 cups hot water
1 1/2 cups buttermilk biscuit mix
4 cups vegetable oil for frying
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 Fill a deep frying pan 1 1/2 inches deep with vegetable oil.
Heat to medium-high heat.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the water and baking mix.
Using a wooden spoon, beat for about 3 to 4 minutes, until the mixture becomes spongy and uniform.
Using a pastry bag, pipe 5-inch long strips of batter into the hot oil.
For best results, fry only a couple at a time. Cook until golden brown, then drain on paper towels.
In a small bowl or saucer, stir together the sugar and cinnamon.
Dip fried churros in the sugar to coat.
