1⁄4 cup water
57 grams butter
3⁄4 cup milk
2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1 very ripe banana, mashed


3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

in a medium sized saucepan, bring the water, butter and milk to a boil.

mix the flour and baking powder together and add to the milk mix, stirring rapidly until a
soft ball is formed and dough pulls away from the sides of the pan.

using an electric mixer, beat in the eggs one at a time and then add the banana.

allow to cool for a few minutes then place in a pastry bag filled with a star tip.

heat oil (about 2 inches deep) in a medium sized fry pan.

when oil is ready ( a bit of bread dropped in will bubble when ready)
pipe lengths of batter straight into fry pan, cutting at desired length with a pair
of scissors.  cook till golden

Combine the cinnamon and sugar on a plate and drop churros into it straight from the fry pan
(shake off excess oil as you remove them).  roll in the sugar and serve while hot.
