1. Pour the water into a saucepan and add the chopped butter, brown sugar and salt. Bring it to a boil, then add the flour. Mix everything well and boil for one more minute over a lower heat to dry the dough a little.

2. Leave the dough to cool a little and then add the eggs, one at a time, beating until incorporated after each addition.

3. Spoon the dough into a pastry bag and fry churros in hot oil the same way as you would fry donuts – holding the pastry bag above the oil, squeeze the batter out, snipping off the desired lengths with a knife. Fry until nicely browned.

4. Roll fried churros in sugar, cinnamon and lime zest mixture.

Try churros with chocolate or caramel dipping sauce.
