Churros con chocolate

There are a lot of gluten free churro recipes on the internet but all the ones I had found included frying the churros. I know this is the traditional way of cooking them but I’m a little nervous of deep fat frying foods and so I’d bought a churro maker. It’s essentially a toastie maker […]
