This is a recipe that I've been playing around with for a couple of years or so, I've played with doughnut recipes of every conceivable method, as is usual trying to complicate things like we chefs do! Until I was reminded of these simple, but absolutely tasty, not for the diet conscious, sugar coated churro

They are basically a deep fried doughnut like snack, served warm, coated in cinnamon sugar and usually with chocolate sauce, so what's not to like?!!

Unlike the normal doughnut recipe, these beauties are ready to go in 15 minutes, so no waiting around for dough to rise
