Easy Egg-free Churros

It's easy to make and has only a few ingredients.
It only uses a small amount of oil.
You can enjoy different flavors.
Safe for those who have egg or milk allergy.

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

Cake flour
120 g
Baking powder
1/4 teaspoon
Water (can be milk or soy milk)
200 ml
Salt
a small amount
Oil
for frying
Toppings (to taste)
Cinnamon sugar
2-3 tablespoons
Maple syrup
to taste
Honey
to taste

Steps

1. If you are piping out the dough, prepare a sturdy piping bag and a star shaped piping tip, or a plastic icing syringe. You can also shape it with your hand.
2. In a pot, add the water and salt and boil the water over medium heat. Sift the cake flour and baking powder together.
3. Add the sifted flour all at once into the boiling water from Step 1. Remove the pot from heat and knead the dough with a wooden spatula until it comes together.
4. Once the dough is cooled, shape it by hand or add it in a piping bag with a tip.
5. Fill the skillet with about 1 cm depth of oil, and heat it up to medium-low heat. Pipe out the dough, or insert the hand-shaped dough into the hot oil and fry it.
6. Cook though until golden brown while turning occasionally. When it is cooked, drain the oil on paper towel.
7. Add the toppings. In a plastic bag, add the cinnamon sugar and churros and shake the bag.
8. It tastes great too if you drizzle on some honey or maple syrup.

Story Behind this Recipe

My previous churros recipe had 2-3 tablespoons of oil, but it does not cook through easily and they occasionally came out raw, so I increased the amount.
