Introduction: *Gourmet* Disneyland Churro Bites

    Being locked in your house is the perfect time to make this delicious copycat recipe of Disneyland's famous Churro Bites, but we're going to make it gourmet!

    This simple recipe builds on Disneyland's recipe and uses only basic pantry ingredients.
    These churros will be crisp on the outside, but soft and custard-y on the inside.

    Supplies

    Makes 2 servings-

    • Water- 1/3 cup (80 ml)
    • Flour- 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp (80 g)
    • Butter- 2 tbsp (30 g)
    • Egg- 1 medium sized
    • Sugar- 1 tbsp
    • Salt- pinch
    • Cinnamon powder- pinch
    • Vanilla essence- 1/4 tsp

    For the sugar coating-

    • Sugar (brown or white)- 1/2 cup (100 g)
    • Cinnamon powder- 1/4 tsp

    Special Equipment-

    • Piping Bag
    • Star shaped nozzle

    Step 1: Brown the Butter

    This is our trick to making these gourmet churros. Browning the butter adds a pleasant nutty flavour to them.

    To brown the butter heat 1 tbsp of the butter over a medium flame while occasionally stirring it till it starts foaming and turns brown. Remove from heat, let this slightly cool down and then add the remaining 1 tbsp remaining butter in small pieces while gently stirring and let it cool down completely.

    Step 2: Preparing the Dough

    Once the butter has cooled, to the saucepan add the water, salt, sugar, cinnamon powder, stir well and bring it to a rolling boil.

    Once it has boiled, reduce the heat to low and add the flour while continuously stirring.

    After 3-5 minutes of stirring, it should become a ball and not stick to the sides of the saucepan anymore. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then remove from heat and keep it aside.

    Step 3: Finish the Dough and Load the Piping Bag

    After the mixture has been kept aside for 15 minutes and cooled completely, add the egg and vanilla essence to the mixture and combine really well (4-5 minutes of stirring).

    Next, load the dough into the piping bag, attach the nozzle and we're ready for frying!

    Step 4: Frying the Churros!

    In a saucepan/ skillet/ dutch oven/ pot, heat any neutral vegetable oil on a medium-low flame.

    Gently pipe out 1.5-2 inch segments of the dough from the piping bag, cut with a knife or scissors, and directly drop into the hot oil. Fry them in small batches (1-2 minutes on each side, then flip) till they're light-golden brown and then drain onto paper napkins to soak excess oil.

    Step 5: Final Touches!

    While they're still hot, prepare a mixture of 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder in a bowl, and drop these hot churros into this bowl. Gently toss them till they get coated on all sides.

    Serve either plain or with chocolate sauce and enjoy!

      Eso de churro, sólo tiene el nombre. La receta de churros sólo lleva harina de fuerza, agua y sal. A un kilo de harina un litro de agua. Se calienta el agua que no llegue hervir. Se tamiza la harina y se tira de un golpe al agua caliente (no hirviendo). Se empieza a mover rápidamente para evitar grumos, se agrega sal a gusto. Cuando empieza a enfriar, se amasa con las manos. Debe quedar una masa suave, algo pastosa, pero no quedar pegada en la vasija. Luego se mete en un embudo de churros y se fríen en aceite bien caliente.

      Esta receta es una variación de la receta clásica original, por algo el título dice: *Gourmet* Disneyland Churros.

      Si, gracias. Tenía el objetivo de replicar y mejorar la famosa receta de Disneyland y es por eso que agregué 'gourmet' en el título

      Sí estoy de acuerdo.
      Tradicionalmente se hace así.
      Sin embargo, esta receta se basa en la receta oficial de Disneyland para sus famosos churros. y dado que instructables estaba organizando un concurso de recetas de imitación, pensé que sería una entrada adecuada teniendo en cuenta el tema del concurso.
      También he tratado de hacer una versión más gourmet de churros.

      True.
      This recipe just builds on the official Disneyland churro recipe they released on their website. And since instructables was running a 'Copycat Recipes' contest, I thought this would be a suitable entry keeping in mind the contest theme and rules

      Just in case you don't understand Spanish (Lucy Villalba's comment), this is no churro. Churros are made only of bread/hard flour, hot (not boiling) water and salt. This Disney recipe is to churros like Disney movies to original stories (Cinderella, ...)
