When Mini-Me looked up at me with terribly sad eyes saying how much she misses her hot cinnamon doughnut treat since being required to maintain a Gluten Free diet, it absolutely shattered my heart. I mean, what was I supposed to do except go to my pantry, grab my Gluten Free Flour & make my wee poppet some Churros!

This is such an easy doughnut to make at home & this recipe will easily provide you a party platter worth of delectable delights.

Start simply by popping 1 cup of water along with 100g of butter into a medium saucepan & bringing that to the boil, stirring until the butter is melted, before removing from the heat.

Next, add in 1 cup of plain flour & a good pinch of salt. Stir with your wooden spoon to combine it well & when the dough starts to come away from the side of the pan then cover the top with some plastic wrap & allow to stand for at least 15 minutes or until it’s cooled.

Then it’s just a case of beating in the eggs. You’ll need 3 eggs in total, lightly whisk each separately to add in one at a time, beating the dough well after each addition to combine it.

Spoon the dough into a piping bag which is fitted with a star nozzle.

Heat up 1 litre of oil in a large saucepan to nice & hot. Squeeze lengths of the dough into the hot oil, using a sharp knife to cut the dough between each one. Fry for a couple of minutes until they turn a lovely golden colour. Remove from the oil to drain on a cooling wire set over a tray then dust with Cinnamon Sugar.

Meanwhile, break up 200g of good quality dark chocolate into a small saucepan & pour over 1 cup of milk. Pop that on the stove over a gentle heat to melt, stirring continuously, until the chocolate is melted & the dipping sauce is smooth & slightly thickened.

Serve the fabuliciouz Churros with the luscious chocolate dipping sauce & bask in the glory!
