Crispy Churro Waffles

Whenever I see churros on a dessert menu, it’s the obvious choice – I’ll ALWAYS order them. The warm, crispy shell and the fact that they come with a usual dipping sauce, reel me in. But that’s the thing – I always order them because I never make them at home. Let me confess – I hate deep frying at home. Don’t ask me why (I blame my mother, she also has this innate fear), bit it’s something I never do. So churros were out of the question, until now. Crispy Churro Waffles, made in a waffle maker, to the rescue!
