Following my previous successful experiment at making Churro Balls (read the post here), I attempted this easy red velvet version this time. I followed closely, but also made my own amendments to the recipe that I found here. This version of the churro balls tasted somewhat different from the previous, sans cinnamon. There was more of a chocolatey taste to it from the cocoa powder. While I didn't prepare any dips, you can opt to sauce your churro balls in cream cheese or chocolate. It can also be the perfect end to your meal with your favourite ice cream!

Let me know what you think if you're trying out this recipe. :)

Recipe

50ml Water
1 Tablespoon Red Food Colouring
1 Tablespoon Caster Sugar (In my case, I used brown sugar)
40g Butter (~ 2.5 Tablespoons)
50ml Whole Milk
1 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice
65g Plain Flour (2/3 cup)
2 Teaspoons Cocoa Powder
1 Egg
Icing Sugar

1) If you have buttermilk, skip this step. If not, combine the whole milk and lemon juice to create buttermilk.
2) In a pan, add the buttermilk, water, red food colouring, sugar and butter.
3) Bring on the heat! Stir the jumbled ingredients together until the mixture boils.
4) Bring the pan away from the heat, then sift in the flour and cocoa powder. I had to use more flour since my mixture turned out watery.
5) Mix everything well.
6) Put the pan back on the heat while you stir for another minute.
7) Beat the egg separately.
8) Pour the beaten egg in the pan a little at a time as you continue with the mixing.
9) If you own a pastry bag and star nozzle, you can opt to make the traditional long churros. Since I don't have any, I made balls from using my palms.
10) Fry!
11) Finish up with dusting of icing sugar.
