This recipe is from mis-recetas.org, a food blog. These portuguese fritters are like little donuts that are light, airy and dusted in cinnamon sugar. They are remarkably like a Mexican churro, only a different shape. Easy to make, too! These are excellent with your afternoon tea or coffee...

- 75 g butter
- 250 ml low-fat milk

- In a saucepan place the milk, butter and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then add the flour, stirring constantly.

- After it has cooled a bit, add eggs one at a time, stirring well after each addition.
