This was a fun recipe I finally got to use my little pamperd chef tool for something. These really do puff up and I wasn't able to lay them down into the oil length wise but I used a small pot. Super fun to make and not a bad little doughnut. I'm from cali so I've taste alot of churros but I just felt these were missing a little something extra in the taste area. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT 5.
