Double Churros Breakfast

Double churros breakfast sounds like a sin in a nutrition book. I accidentally did make it happen.

Whenever I visit my parents, my mum and I must go out for a churros breakfast on one of the mornings of my stay. It’s turned into a tradition now. This summer our churros breakfast tradition went a little overboard and turned into a double churros and porras ceremony.

In the town where my parents live, the best place to have churros is from a small churros making shop. You take your churros, in a paper cone, and bring it next door to a café and enjoy it there with some thick hot chocolate, or with coffee if you feel you must be on a diet…

However, apparently now the café had been sold so a few changes had taken place. We bought our delicious churros in the paper cone, took it next door and ordered some hot chocolate, as usual. Then we realised that there were new signs saying that they now also serve churros and porras. No wonder the waitress was eyeing me quite nastily. Porras are similar to churros but they are thicker. Yes, we decided to order a round of porras too!

The truth is that I’m actually quite dismayed at the fact that the café now serves churros and porras. The previous set up was also a very nice Andalusian “small town” thing, where you got to make conversation with the town folk in the queue of the churros shop. At the same time, the owner of the churros shop did tell me he opened another one with his son in another part of the town, so things can’t be that bad.

Thank you for reading!

    I tried churros when we lived in Spain. And discovered they’re not sweet! So in 2007 when my son and I traveled to Spain, we went to 2 different places for churros in Málaga. My son didn’t want to drink the thick, dark Spanish chocolate(he doesn’t care for hot drinks)–until he tasted my cup–he loved it! Spanish hot chocolate reminds me of the Mexican “atole de champurrado,” a masa drink with corn meal used to make corn tortillas. (Don’t confuse this with the cornmeal to make corn bread!) I discovered later that Spanish hot chocolate has cornstarch, similar to Maizena. Great!

      Aha! Thats why we sprinkle sugar on them! The Spanish thick hot chocolate for the churros is wonderful, it could not be possible that he wouldn’t like it. xx

      Does it have coconut root? Because churros and porras don’t…

    Fond memories of churros dipped in velvety, dark melted chocolate. Beautiful photos and anecdote about your tradition with your mum. I love that you enjoy connecting with the folks who give you delicious food when you’re out. 🙂
