Decadent churros with dark chocolate sauce

Ditch the doughnuts this weekend and indulge in these decadent churros with dark chocolate sauce! They’re both fried, so you’re not missing a thing!


For the churros
1 cup water
125 g butter, chopped
5 cm lemon rind
1 tsp baking powder
3 eggs
Vegetable oil, to deep-fry
¼ cup sugar + to serve
For the chocolate sauce
½ cup milk
Pinch salt
250g dark chocolate, chopped
1 tbsp cornflour
1 tbsp hot water

1. Bring the water, butter and lemon rind to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and remove the lemon rind.
2. Add the flour and baking powder and stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture comes away cleanly from the sides and forms a ball. Remove from heat.
3. Add eggs and beat until the mixture is thick and smooth. Spoon into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle.
4. In a large pot, heat enough oil to deep-fry. Squeeze 5 cm long strips of batter into the hot oil and fry in batches, for 2 minutes on each side, until golden. Drain on paper towel.
For the chocolate sauce
1. Heat the milk and salt. Add the dark chocolate and stir until it is melted.
2. Mix the cornflour and the hot water, then stir into the chocolate sauce. Cook for 5 minutes until thickened.
To serve
1. Sprinkle sugar on a plate. Quickly roll the warm churros in it to coat. Serve with the pot of chocolate sauce to dip in.

Top tip: Scoop the dough into the piping bag while it’s still warm!
