  • 110 g (3¾ oz/½ cup) raw (demerara) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 30 g (1 oz) unsalted butter
  • 125 g (4½ oz/1 cup) plain (all-purpose) flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt

3. Pour the oil into a deep-fryer or a large heavy-based saucepan to a depth of 6 cm (2½ inch) and heatto 190°C (375°F), or until a cube of bread turns golden brown in 10 seconds. Cooking in batches of four or five atatime, pipe 8 cm (3¼ inch) lengths of dough into the oil, snipping off the ends with scissors. Cook for 2–3 minutes,turning once. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the churros to a plate lined with paper towel. Toss the churros inthe sugar and cinnamon to coat and place on a serving plate.
