It was about 19 years ago, during a trip to Spain, when I first tasted Churros – a type of fried dough (doughnut?) that you sprinkle with sugar and dip in chocolate sauce.

It was a bright day in October, and we stopped at a mountain pass on our way to Segovia, there was a strong wind blowing and it was cold.
We drank hot chocolate and ate Churros – I remember that it was very tasty.

I have not tasted one like it since, a lot of food we ate in Spain we have not eaten since, so i guess it is time to revisit.
Once in a while I hear the word Churros which reminds me that maybe  I should attempt making them myself, now I have decided the time has come.

125 ml water
125 ml milk
100 gr butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
150 gr white flour
4 eggs

Boil the water, milk, butter, salt & sugar in a saucepan
Add the flour while stirring until it thickens and remove from the heat
While waiting until mixture drys a little, scramble the eggs
Add the eggs to the mixture and mix well
