CHURROS WITH CHILLI CHOCOLATE DIPPING SAUCE

Serves 8, makes about 16 churros

Ingredients

100g butter

2 tsp sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

130g plain flour, sifted

4 eggs, lightly beaten

Sugar coating

150g caster sugar

1½ tsp ground cinnamon

Dipping sauce

½ cup cream

20g butter

2 tbsp liquid glucose or corn syrup

175g dark chocolate (at least 60% cocoa), broken into pieces

½-1 tsp ground chilli powder

Method

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add 300ml water, sugar and vanilla and bring to the boil.

Add flour all at once and stir vigorously over low heat, using a wooden spoon, until mixture comes away from the side of the pan.

Take off heat and continue to stir for a minute then add beaten eggs a little at a time, beating between each addition, to make a smooth dough.

Allow mixture to cool then spoon into a large piping bag fitted with a 1cm star nozzle.

Heat oil in a deep fryer or large pot. Pipe dough carefully into the hot oil in about 12cm lengths, using scissors to snip off each length. Fry 2 or 3 at a time for about 2 minutes each side. Drain on paper towels.

While hot, toss in the combined caster sugar and cinnamon. Serve warm with the chocolate dipping sauce.

Dipping sauce: Place cream, butter and liquid glucose in a small saucepan and stir over medium heat until mixture begins to simmer. Take off heat and add chocolate and chilli, stirring until chocolate has completely melted. Serve immediately.
