Sourdough Churros with Salted Sipping Chocolate
Prep Time: 25 min Cook Time: 15 min
For the Sourdough Churros:
1 c. water
1 tbsp vegetable oil
¼ tsp. salt
1 c. sourdough starter, room temp and recently fed
1 c. all-purpose flour
oil, for frying
For the Sipping Chocolate:
4 oz good dark chocolate, 65% cacao or above
¼ tsp. sea salt
To make the churros, combine water, oil, and salt in a medium saucepan over high heat until boiling.
Add flour and sourdough starter all at once, then reduce heat to low, stirring continuously to form a sticky ball of dough.
Let the mixture cool slightly. You want the consistency to be between a batter and a dough so you can pipe it. Fill a pastry bag with fluted attachment or a plastic sandwich bag with the churro mixture.
Heat 1/2 inch oil in a deep skillet over medium-high heat. You’ll know when the oil is hot enough when it quickly browns a cube of bread.
While the oil heats, make the sipping chocolate. In a double boiler or microwave, heat the cholate until melted. Keep the heat at medium-low.
Add the milk and stir frequently until the mixture thickens, 5-10 minutes.
Transfer to mug or serving dish and sprinkle sea salt on top.
Once the oil for the churros is heated, carefully pipe a few lines into the oil, turning after thoroughly browned, 1 minute or so.
Drain churros on paper towel, and serve immediately, dipping in salted chocolate. Enjoy!
