Ingredients

YOU WILL NEED
  • Digital kitchen scales
  • 1 packet Noshu 98% Sugar Free Vanilla Cupcake Mix
  • Large saucepan
INGREDIENTS
  • 150 g Noshu 98% Sugar Free Vanilla Cupcake Mix
  • 100 g gluten free flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • 40 g Butter, melted
  • 2 extra large eggs
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • Canola or vegetable oil (for deep frying) to fill your saucepan about 1/2 of the way full. For a medium sized pot, we used 750 ml.

Method

METHOD
  • 1
    Preheat oil in a saucepan on medium-high heat until oil reaches about 160°C. You'll know the oil is hot enough when you place a wooden skewer or spoon into the oil, and it bubbles around the wood.
MIX
  • 2
    In a medium bowl, mix together the cupcake mix, gluten free flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Then make a 'well' in the middle and add in you butter, eggs and milk. Mix with a hand whisk until batter is smooth.
  • 3
    Place mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star shaped nozzle.
FRY
  • 4
    Once oil is at temperature, hold the piping bag approximately 4cm above the hot oil. Pipe 5-10 cm long 'lines' of dough into the oil, cutting the end of the batter from the piping bag using kitchen scissors. Pipe 5-8 churros at a time. Allow churros to cook for about 2 minutes on each side until beautifully golden brown. Using a fork or tongs scoop out cooked churros and allow to cool slightly on a plate lined with paper towel. Continue until all batter is used.

    Enjoy your churros hot with any toppings of choice!
