Ingredients

How to make it

  • Make the syrup first:
  • Heat sugar and water over medium heat till sugar is dissolved, then boil for 5 minutes add the lemon juice and let it cool. Syrup will thicken while cooling.
  • In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, bring butter and water to a running boil.Pour the flour mixture all in one go and stir using a wooden spoon till it form a ball shape. Turn the dough on a clean bowl and cool for 15 minutes.
  • Mix in the eggs one at a time stirring well after each addition. Add the vanilla and stir again.
  • Fill the dough in a piping bag fitted with a nozzle of the shape you desire. Or you can drop a small amount of the batter in the oil using a teaspoon.
  • Get the oil to the frying point over medium heat, drop 5cm log from the piping bag into the hot oil. You can use a scissors to cut the end of the log if it sticks to the piping bag. Or just use the teaspoon and drop batter gently in the oil. Watch carefully.
  • Fry for 3 minutes on each side till you reach a deep golden brown. Take out from the oil and drain for 2-3 seconds, immediately dip the fritters in the cooled syrup for 1 minute only and take them out. Serve warm or cold.
  • You can also omit dipping them in syrup if you don’t like that much sweet taste,only dust them with powdered sugar after they are drained from oil.

    Ahmed, hello! I am going to enjoy your recipe soon. Here, the "churros" aren't dipped in a syrup but rolled in sugar and cinnamon. They are also made in long sticks instead of smaller strips or balls. I love that you use a syrup and already know how good all of your recipes are so I'm trying it your way! Thanks for another great recipes. I wish that all of your recipes were sent to me automatically like they were when I first joined GroupRecipes.com. I seem to be missing many of them which I'll have to go look at! Thanks again my friend! I can't wait to try your recipe.

    We have them in Cyprus as well. We call them Bombes (the e is pronounced) and it means bombs of course from their shape. I haven't eaten them since I was a kid and I didn't know how to make them. I loved the. They have something similar in Greece called "touloumbes" but do not taste at all like the ones I know. Shall try them and if I succeed in making them shall post them in the blog. Thanks Ahmed for giving us the recipe.

    I adore sweet fried fritters, and the glaze is absolutely sublime :) In Scotland, I used to get a yeast version of these, very airy, deep-fried (like everything else there!) and dipped in the sugar-syrup glaze. Very addictive! Thanks for posting (yet another) great recipe, Ahmed :) [BTW, typing error?? Syrup ingredients -- 2 sugar amounts, one of them should be water??? Just guessing...]
