  • Technique Baking
  • Preparation Time 20 minutes
  • Cooking Time 10 minutes
  • Yield 4 servings
  • 90 grams caster sugar
  • ½ tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ tablespoon Chinese five spice powder
  • 125 grams plain flour
  • 125 grams self-raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 450 millilitres boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil or canola oil
  • 1 litre vegetable oil for frying
  • For sauce:
  • 250 grams dark chocolate, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 300 millilitres double/heavy cream
  1. In a wide-mouthed bowl, mix the ground cinnamon, chinese five spice and caster sugar together. Set aside.
  2. Make the chocolate sauce by heating the dark chocolate, honey and cream over a low heat until combined. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk the plain flour, self-raising flour, orange zest and salt together and create a well in the middle.
  4. Pour the grapeseed or canola oil and boiling water into the well and mix everything together to form a batter. Beat it well to make sure it's smooth. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  5. Heat up the sunflower oil over a medium-high heat. If you have a thermometer, the oil should be at 170C.
  6. Transfer the churros batter to a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle. Holding the piping bag in one hand and a pair of scissors in the other, squeeze out 2 or 3-inch segments of the churros batter, snipping to release it into the hot oil. Fry 3-4 at a time.
  7. Fry each batch for 3-4 minutes, then remove and drain on kitchen paper. When you're done frying, toss the churros with the spiced sugar. Serve alongside the chocolate sauce.
