My better half and I love Churros dusted with cinnamon sugar.


I had no idea that Mexican chocolate is also called champurrado, and that it contains masa harina. Various Mexican friends have served me that, and I really like it, but haven't yet figured out how to make it myself. Now I know:) You're an Angel, Johanna!!


vaya, vaya, pille, don't exaggerate. although i must say those churros are heavenly ;-)
and coooking ninja, the cinnamon dusting is the best - plain sugar just wouldn't do it for me!


churros are very popular in belgium. i don't know why exactly but they are everywhere - every fair, street party, etc. i like them but never tried them at home. thanks for sharing this


Oops! Totally missed it then, I was aiming for Friday :) But your churros look great, I wish I had some now. :)


Oh mein Gott, das gibt es auch in Frankreich...Gehen direkt auf die Hüfte, schmecken aber verdammmt gut, habe das Rezept so schnell gelesen, dass nichts hängen blieb, für meine Hüften...

My mouth is watering! What a perfect snack for this dreary Northern European weather that we're suffering. Good on you, for putting in the effort.


I had chocolate and churros in Spain more times than I can count, but now I realize I've never had the Mexican versions. That will have to be remedied - thanks so much for the recipes!

oh churros! I miss them so much so this will be something for me to make very soon. Thank you!


Delicious! I have had churros in Spain and yes, they do make for a great afternoon snack or re-energizer after dancing :) Your churros look so perfect!

I have had Spanish hot chocolate but never Mexican...but guess what! Where I live (Philippines) we have a very typical chocolate rice pudding we have for breakfast and it's called champorado...what a nice coincidence! :) So funny how the world works :)


Ich liebe churros! Gegessen haben wir die letzten an einem herrlichen Abend am Meer in der Nähe von Saint Tropez. Ich sollte doch auch mal welche selbst machen....
Deine 25 kg hat unser chinesischer Austauschschüler übrigens auch erreicht ;-)


Churros my favorite breakfast! The diference is that here in Spain, the dough is simply flour, salt and water. No eggs, no butter added. Just fried and sprinkled with sugar and in some places mixed with cinamon powder. I also have the recipe in my blog. Take a look if you wish.

And what a wonderful way to participate, Johanna! This is decadent!


I love a cup of hot, creamy chocolate topped with whipped cream and some fresh churros. That was our family sunday morning treat in Spain! I miss it!


I wish I'd seen your post before I embarked on making churros for 300. My recipe, quite different to yours, turned out well, but I would've loved to give yours a go too because they look and sounds divine! :)


I fell in love with chocolate and churros during 2 weeks in spain - and I was delighted to see this post - as I am not keen on deep frying, a holiday to mexico sounds preferable to trying this recipe, but it has been good to learn about a favourite dish from your post


These look sinful. I've never had a churro, but I really want to try one now!

I never cared for champurrado myself, although my parents drank it all of the time, but now I am willing to give it another try! Love your blog, love London!
