I just can’t get enough of Trader Joe’s Ube Mochi Waffle Mix! My local Trader Joe’s in Austin still had plenty of boxes yesterday, so I grabbed a few more and decided to make something a little fun with it. I’ve made Waffles filled with Nutella and Ube Jam, I’ve also made Ube Mochi Donuts with the mix and today I made Ube Mochi Churros! Yes Churros!!! They turned out so AMAZING, the churros are extra crispy and have a fluffy, chewy interior – I coated them in Ube Sugar which makes them look so pretty. Serve these with Trader Joe’s Ube Ice Cream for the ultimate treat! Watch my short Instagram video here
Use an extra large open star tip to pipe the churro batter into the hot frying oil
You can also pipe shapes onto parchment paper and drop the whole thing (with the parchment paper) into the frying oil. After a minute, use metal tongs to flip the churro and remove the parchment paper
A deep fry thermometer is a must when frying churros, the frying oil needs to stay around 360°F – if the temp drops too low, you will end up with soggy, oily churros.
Ube Sugar made with granulated sugar, corn starch and ube flavoring
You can also enjoy the churros with Trader Joe’s Ube Ice Cream and Coconut Whipped Cream
