Greek Syrupy Churros
Method

For the syrup

  • In a pot, add all of the ingredients for the syrup and bring to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and set aside to cool completely.

For the dough

  • Place a pot over medium heat.
  • Add the water, sugar, salt and butter and bring to a boil.
  • At the same time combine the flour and semolina in a bowl.
  • As soon as the butter melts add the flour-semolina mixture all at once.
  • Stir continuously with a wooden spoon, until the mixture comes together and starts to pull away from the sides of the pot.
  • Remove from heat and let the dough cool for 6-7 minutes.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time and mix until they are completely incorporated.
  • The dough should be smooth, stiff and not sticky.
  • Set it aside to cool.
  • Insert the large open star piping nozzle to a pastry bag.
  • Fill the pastry bag with the dough.
  • Heat the corn oil in a small pot over medium heat. It should reach 180* (350* F).
  • Carefully pipe out strips of dough about 5 cm long, over the pot and into the hot oil.
  • To do this, hold the pastry bag with your left hand over the pot, pipe out the dough and use your right hand to cut the dough with a knife so that it can fall in to the pot. Dip the knife in some water before cutting the dough so that the dough doesn’t stick to the knife and ruin the shape of the churros.
  • Fry until golden.
  • When ready, drop the hot churros into the cool syrup.
  • Stir gently for 1-2 minutes so they can absorb the syrup.
  • Remove and lay out on a wire rack so they can drain from excess syrup.
  • Serve!
