Recipe for a Spanish Dessert

Do you consider churros a Recipe for a Spanish Dessert?...

... No, I suppose "churros" are not primarily a Spanish dessert recipe, but they're so wonderfully sweet and adaptable that I'm including them under desserts.

In Spain, famous churros are normally served accompanied by a cup of thick, creamy chocolate - as in chocolate con churros.

And, as those of you who've visited Spain will know, they're absolutely delicious anytime of the day or night ...

First thing in the morning, they make you feel life is worth living.

During the rest of the day, they're a welcome treat and pick-you-up.

And, when you've been out partying all night, try chocolate con churros before going home to bed - they make a perfect ending to a great night out.

In fact, they're a bit like tapas, aren't they?... Suitable anytime, anywhere ...

This is why you'll find the following churros recipe under the sweet tapas section of my Spanish Tapas Kindle Book ... along with 299 other amazingly simple tapas recipes. Most of them savory, of course.

But, let's get back to our churro recipe ...
