Okay, not in the strictest sense, but sometimes, one has to make the best of what they have--and they still brought out good results! This afternoon, I made this.
|You can find the recipe here! It's easy peasy. :)|
It's the first time I made churros. To be honest, I didn't expect it to be a bit, er, strenuous, haha. The recipe video made it look easy--so I thought it was. Well, it was, except for the part where I would be mixing the ingredients to make it a dough. The only good thing about it is that I was able to exercise my arms. Boy, that was quite a workout!
Another challenge--since I don't have the star piping for icing, I didn't know how else. So...I thought it would be easier to roll the dough into a ball--it seemed to work. Plus, I was able to make a lot of churros that way. When they were done, it was such a hit with my mum and older brother that the balls were gone in less than an hour! I made chocolate dip, but as I bought a new jar of cheese-jalapeno dip, my older brother made a beeline for it. I tried it out, and it was just as good!
