Hot chocolate and doughnut from Spain


This hot chocolate or chocolate caliente compliments the churros.

1 cup milk
1 oz baking chocolate
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cornstarch

Mix the cornstarch with milk. In a pan bring the milk to a boil in medium heat. Remove from heat and add the chocolate, then the sugar. Serve hot.
This has a consistency of chocolate pudding. If using milk chocolate omit the sugar.


Churros

1 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 cup water
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
oil to fry 2 inches high

Boil the water with vegetable oil, salt and sugar in a pan. Remove from heat and add flour. With a fork stir quickly and make a smooth dough, it will be a little sticky.
Squeeze through a thick mould or pastry bag onto hot oil and fry till golden brown. It will float while frying.
Amount of flour and water has to be even. Serve warm sprinkled with sugar or drizzle honey.

  7. I didn't realize churros are so easy to make. It's dangerous to stare at your photos, Akheela, before I've even prepared dinner. I'd love to spoil my appetite with the first one. ; D
