Churros is a deep fried batter or choux usually dipped in hot chocolate syrup. It was introduced to me by my friend. However, what she gave me are baked churros. I liked it since it’s not greasy and the thought it’s baked then it must be healthy.
I tried making a small batch of baked churros and turned out not the way I liked it. Okay, the taste is great and the texture is soft even if it’s been at room temperature for several hours, however, it turned out flat. The round shaped that it should be collapsed upon cooling.
I tried baking it at 190 and 160 degrees Celsius and left it in the oven for 10 minutes but still it collapsed and turned out flat. Any suggestion to solve this problem?
