For my first treat made back in Kentucky, I’ve made a little ode to California, cardamom churros. I also put a delicious little spin on them, and instead of coating them in cinnamon sugar, I did a cardamom sugar coating. I also added a bit of cardamom and vanilla to the dough to give it a deeper flavor, and the result was totally amazing.
I have a massive love of cardamom; it’s such an unusual flavor that we never really had growing up. I only discovered it while learning Scandinavian baking, and I promptly fell in love with it. I am a little obsessed with putting it in everything, but it is an absolute win in these churros.
I was surprised to find that these were so easy and fun to make. After testing them, the only downside was that I did smell like a fryer by the end of it.
This is such a nice and simple dough. First, you bring the water, oil, sugar, salt,
These are first coated in a mixture of cardamom, cinnamon, and sugar. Then they are drizzled in white chocolate. Both are super simple to make and are the perfect additions to the churros.
These are fried in a pot of vegetable oil, so a candy thermometer will come in handy to make sure the oil is the right temperature to cook the dough but not burn it. There isn’t an exact time for the frying, just until the churros are fully browned. For me, it was about 1 minute.
