Cornmeal Churros

(26 - 30 Churros)

Batter

Coating

  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup sugar

Preheat 2” of oil in deep fryer or skillet to 350°F.

For batter, combine muffin mix, flour, sugar, cinnamon and baking powder.  Add eggs and buttermilk; stir until combined.  Spoon half of batter into pastry bag fitted with a large star tip.  Pipe 4” long pieces of batter directly into oil, a few at a time.  Fry until lightly browned on both sides (about 20 seconds), turning once.  Remove with slotted spoon or tongs.  Drain on paper towels.  Repeat with remaining batter.  For coating, combine ingredients; sprinkle over churros while still warm.
