      This was a fun recipe I finally got to use my little pamperd chef tool for something. These really do puff up and I wasn't able to lay them down into the oil length wise but I used a small pot. Super fun to make and not a bad little doughnut. I'm from cali so I've taste alot of churros but I just felt these were missing a little something extra in the taste area. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT 5.

      I have a long standing love affair with Churros. Thanks to my gluten intolerance I haven't had one in over 10 years. But yesterday, I HAD A CHURRO!! :) :) Used Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour Mix #1 to make these gluten free. Had to add about 1/4 cup extra water as a result, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thanks so much for sharing! Made for ZWT5 Groovy GastroGnomes.
