    Churros with a Coffee Chocolate Sauce

    Churros with a Coffee Chocolate Sauce

     

    Having just been on an incredible trip to Colombia I couldn't help but be inspired to treat the CRU Kafe team to a delicious pastry dish that Colin and I enjoyed on a few occassions while wandering the streets. Sprinkled with sugar and drizzled in chocolate, it can only be non-other than Churros.

    To add a little CRU Kafe twist to this dish, I created a chocolate sauce with the addition of coffee and chilli. After many smiles of satisfaction from CRU team members, I thought we should share this recipe with all of you at home. 

    Hope you enjoy!

     

    Method

    Step I
    Combine the melted butter, vanilla paste and a pinch of salt with 500ml recently boiled water.

    Step II
    Sift the self-raising flour and plain flour into a large bowl. Mix together, then make a well in the centre. Gradually pour into the flour, stirring constantly to incorporate. Cover and leave for 20mins.

    Step III
    Put the dried chillies in a bowl filled with hot water and soak for 10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and allow to cool.

     

    Step IV
    Set a saucepan with the cream over a medium heat and bring to a simmer. Add the chocolate, coffee and chillies and stir constantly until the chocolate has melted. Pass the sauce through a sieve into a pan and discard the chillies. Keep warm over a low heat.

    Step V
    Fill a deep saucepan with oil and heat until a piece of dough turns golden brown in 30 seconds. Spoon the dough into a piping bag fitted with a star-shaped nozzle. pipe 12cm-long shapes around the inside edge of the pan.

    Step VI
    Fry the churros for 30 seconds-1 minute, turning halfway, until golden. Remove and drain on kitchen paper. Keep warm while you fry the remaining dough.

     

    Step VII
    Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a deep-sided baking tray. Toss the churros in the cinnamon sugar, coating well - Serve immediately with a bowl of the warm chocolate, coffee and chilli sauce on the side.

    Coffee Flour Muffins

    Coffee Flour Muffins
    During our Colombian adventure, I managed to track down some coffee flour and had the privilege of baking with it for the first time. What better setting could there be than atop the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountain range, surrounded by the natural beauty of Colombia and, of course, a plantation full of coffee trees.

    While travelling around Bogota we discovered a traditional Colombian food which can be found alongside almost any dish. It's a versatile food that can be grilled, baked, fried, boiled or steamed. It is, of course, an arepa. If you're looking for a bit of Colombian influence in your meals then you have to try our arepa recipe.
