<item-todo-done>½ tsp vanilla extract<item-todo-done><item-todo-done>100g dark chocolate<item-todo-done><item-todo-done>185ml plant-based milk<item-todo-done><item-todo-done>40g sugar<item-todo-done>

Before you start

Small saucepan on a low heat | 3 disposable piping bags or 1 clean reusable piping bag | 1 1⁄2 cm star-shaped nozzle | Large deep saucepan | Cooking thermometer, optional | Baking tray lined with parchment paper | Medium saucepan | Line a large plate with a double layer of kitchen paper

First, make the chocolate sauce

  • Break up the chocolate and put it into the small saucepan with the plant-based milk, sugar and vanilla
  • Stir to a smooth sauce
  • Transfer to a serving bowl
  • Set aside

Next, prepare the piping bags

  • Sprinkle 115g sugar and the cinnamon over a large plate and set aside
  • If you are using disposable piping bags, pile them up and roll them together to make one thick cone (a single bag is likely to split)
  • Cut a small hole at the tip, insert the piping nozzle and push it all the way down to the bottom so that it sticks out of the hole
  • Spray or brush the inside of the bag with a little oil
  • If you are using a reusable bag, insert the nozzle and coat lightly with oil

Heat the oil

  • Pour the 1 1⁄2 litres of oil into the large saucepan so that it comes a third of the way up the sides of the pan
  • Heat the oil to about 180°C, or until a wooden spoon dipped into the oil sizzles around the edges

Meanwhile, form the churro dough

  • Put the water, the remaining 100g sugar, the 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, salt and vanilla extract into the medium saucepan and place on a high heat
  • Bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar
  • Remove from the heat, add the flour and beat vigorously with a wooden spoon until it forms a thick, sticky dough (you’ll need to use a little elbow grease)
  • Spoon the mixture into the piping bag

Cook the churros

  • Pipe 6 churros on to the lined baking tray, each one about 10–15cm long
  • Carefully transfer the churros to the hot oil (if you’re feeling brave you can pipe them straight into the oil)
  • Fry for 8–10 minutes, until golden and cooked through
  • Use a wooden spoon to move them around if they stick together
  • Remove the churros with a slotted spoon and lay on the kitchen paper for 1 minute to drain
  • While they’re still hot, transfer to the cinnamon sugar and roll until completely covered
  • Repeat with the remaining dough – you may need 3 or 4 batches
  • Serve with chocolate sauce
