I found this recipe while waiting for surgery. They're quick and most everyone can get their hands on Bisquick or make some from a recipe here. They'll go great as a dipper with some sweet fondue.
- 3 cups vegetable oil, for frying
- 2 cups Bisquick
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄3 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- In a 4 quart heavy saucepan, heat the oil until a thermometer reaches 360 degrees.
- In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients (except the 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon - mix that in a small bowl and set aside).
- Stir in the milk, vanilla, and egg. Drop a tablespoonful of batter into the hot oil, frying just until golden.
- Drain on paper towels and sprinkle the hot churros with the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
- Serve as-is or drizzled with chocolate, caramel, or with ice cream.
This was pretty good. I voted somewhere between liked and loved, so I opted for the higher star/rating. They are very easy to make, of course. I wasn't sure how hot to have the oil, so the first batch was well done on the outside and not done on the inside. I ended up setting the temp at 300 and they turned out much better. These are good for a quick sugar fix and do taste very similar to a churro, only with a dry, crispy outside.
I usually make churros from scratch and I was trying to see if I could shortcut the process by also using Bisquick mix. Basically, they tasted like fried biscuits. Bisquick churros are too salty for my taste. It's better making it from scratch.
