Basic cinnamon churros.


Happy OCTOBER foodies and the rest. New month brings forth new delicious snacks and dishes, that are up my sleeves and this is just the beginning. I decided to go with churros since they are super easy to make and really delicious especially if you are sweet tooth kinda person.

A churro is a fried dough pastry and quite popular in spain and mexico, and I definitely bring it to you.They can be thin or thick in shape very crunchy on the outside, and mildly soft on the inside. Coated with cinnamon sugar, and it optional to have chocolate or caramel sauce on the side.
