These were delicious and totally worth the effort. The dough is a bit difficult to work with - mine was much stiffer than I anticipated it being, so it made it tricky to pipe the churros. I am questioning whether I measured either the liquid or flour incorrectly. The family gobbled these up. Don't anticipate any leftovers with this one
Time consuming but Delicious! My churro loving daughter approved.
Hardly fair to give this a 3 star rating because you chose to mess it up. In baking sugar is considered a liquid...because it acts as one. You removed a 1/2 cup of liquid then complain that it was too dense! If you choose to eliminate sugar from your diet, i think that's admirable. However, do your research prior to removing it from recipes dependent on it. If you are desiring some sort of sweetness (which why else make a type of donut) I suggest using whey-low or agave. Both are 100% natural (not toxic substitutes) and both are extremely low on the glycemic index. Whey-low would use the same amount as sugar, agave, I'm not certain of the conversion. If you still find it too sweet, use less whey-low. Perhaps you can use unsweeted apple juice in place of the sugar.
My husband does not eat sugar and I try to stay away from it as well. I made these without the sugar. I added cinnamon in the dough and we dipped the finished product in cinnamon honey. They were a little dense and tasted okay. I may try this recipe again but make some changes to see if I can get them to taste better.
