A churro, sometimes referred to as a Spanish doughnut, is a fried-dough pastry—predominantly choux—based snack. Churros are popular in Spain, France, the Philippines, Portugal, Latin America (including Spanish-speaking Caribbean islands) and the United States. There are two types of churros in Spain, one which is thin (and sometimes knotted) and the other which is long and thick (porra). They are both normally eaten for breakfast dipped in hot chocolate or café con leche.
History is divided on how exactly churros came to exist. One theory is they were brought to Europe by the Po...
@Cerberus No. But I stand by the assertion that every single restaurant I visited in Austria, and every recipie I've read on the internet, explicitly says "deep fried" or else mentions so much oil that the distinction is irrelevant. The recipe I followed at home says "swimming/floating" in oil.
Churros are typically fried until they become crunchy, and may be sprinkled with sugar. The surface of a churro is ridged due to having been piped from a churrera, a syringe with a star-shaped nozzle. Churros are generally prisms in shape, and may be straight, curled or spirally twisted.
Like pretzels, churros are often sold by street vendors, who will often fry them freshly on the street stand and sell them hot. In Spain and much of Latin America, churros are available in cafes for breakfast, although they may be eaten throughout the day as a snack. Specialized churrerías can be found in the form of a shop or a trailer during the holiday period.
Funnel cake or funny cake is a regional food popular in North America at carnivals, fairs, sporting events, and seaside resorts.
Funnel cakes are made by pouring batter into hot cooking oil in a circular pattern and deep frying the overlapping mass until golden-brown. When made at concession stands, a pitcher with an integral funnel spout is employed.
Funnel cakes are typically served plain with powdered sugar, or with jam, cinnamon, Nutella, fresh fruit, or other toppings. In the book I'm Just Here for the Food, Alton Brown recommends they be baked with choux pastry, which expands from...
A pancake is a thin, flat, round cake prepared from a batter, and cooked on a hot griddle or frying pan. Most pancakes are quick breads, which use a quick leavening agent such as baking powder, while some use a yeast-raised or fermented batter. Typically, pancakes are cooked one side on a griddle and flipped partway through to cook the other side. Depending on the region, pancakes may be served at any time of day, with a variety of toppings or fillings including jam, chocolate chips, fruit, syrup or meat.
Archaeological evidence suggests that varieties of pancakes are probably the ear...
Beignet (pronounced in English, in French; French, literally ""), synonymous with the English “fritter”, is the French term for a pastry made from deep-fried choux paste. Beignets are commonly known in the U.S. as a dessert served with powdered sugar on top; however, they may be savory dishes as well and may contain meat, vegetables, or fruits. They are traditionally prepared right before consumption to be eaten fresh and hot.
Variations of fried dough can be found across cuisines internationally; however, the origin of the term beignet is specifically French. In the U.S., beignets ha...
A doughnut or donut ( or ) (see spelling differences) is a type of fried dough confectionery or Dessert food. Doughnuts are popular in many countries and prepared in various forms as a sweet snack that can be homemade or purchased in bakeries, supermarkets, food stalls, and franchised specialty outlets. They are usually deep-fried from a flour dough, and shaped in rings or flattened spheres that sometimes contain fillings. Other types of batters can also be used, and various toppings and flavorings are used for different types.
The two most common types are the toroidal ring doughnut...
A traditional cruller (or twister) is a fried pastry often made from a rectangle of dough, with a cut made in the middle that allows it to be pulled over and through itself producing twists in the sides of the donut. Crullers have been described as resembling "a small, braided torpedo". Crullers may be topped with plain powdered sugar; powdered sugar mixed with cinnamon; or icing. However, a "French cruller" is a fluted, ring-shaped doughnut made from choux pastry with a light airy texture.
History and Origin
The name comes from early 19th century Dutch kruller, from krullen "to curl". ...
hush puppies are prepared like donuts but are made from corn meal and are not sweet. but otherwise cooked just like beignet. they are not considered donuts but are more like donuts than either are like pancakes.

La panceta, tocino o tocineta es un producto cárnico o con rodetas que comprende la piel y las capas que se encuentran bajo la piel del cerdo o puerco. Está compuesta de la piel, tocino (grasa) entreverado de carne (de ahí que también se lo denomine «tocino entreverado» o «tocino de veta»). Suele elaborarse ahumado y consumirse salado, teniendo un gran valor energético (aproximadamente 9 calorías por cada gramo).
Es también conocido como bacon (/beicon/) que es una voz inglesa usada en España. En Hispanoamérica, se usan las palabras tocineta y tocino en México, según el tipo. En Argent...
El Sandwich mixto con huevo es un emparedado (generalmente de uno o dos pisos) elaborado sobre tostadas de pan blanco que pueden tener beicon tostado, alguna loncha de queso y lechuga, atún en vinagre (o en aceite) en algo de mahonesa y está "coronado" con un huevo frito. La gracia de este sandwich está en la especie de ventanilla circular que se hace en la tostada superior y que permite dejar ver la yema del huevo frito a través de él.
Este sándwich no tiene una receta fija, y dependerá en gran medida del cocinero, de la región, de los gustos de los consumidores, etc. el ú...
“beicon tostado” would have lomo on it, or back-bacon as you call it.
Quotation from A History of the Cries of London: Ancient and Modern
Oh, dearly do I love "Old Cries,"
Your "Lilies all a'blowing!"
Your blossoms blue, still wet with dew,
"Sweet Violets all a'growing!"
I have always been intrigued by the word usage in the title of this Bob Dylan song. Wikipedia mentions that the song was influenced by Irish and Scottish ballads:
Dylan recalled writing the song as a deliberate attempt to create an anthem of change for the moment. In 1985, he told Cameron Cro...
1. OE. a-, originally ar- (rarely preserved, as in ar-æfnan), OHG. ar-, ir- ur- (mod. G. er-), Goth. us- ur-, implying motion onward or away from a position, hence away, on, up, out, and thus with verbs of motion adding intensity; as in a-bide, a-go, a-rise, a-wake, and many obs. verbs; after the analogy of which it was subsequently prefixed to other vbs., not found with it in OE., as a-curse.
@Alenanno: Why is this a problem? We do this on English.SE all the time, it is considered common courtesy to well-meaning questions. I have to strongly disagree with you here. Besides, I feel that we should be generally free to say what we want in comments. — Cerberus1 min ago
About giving the OP of a closed question some hint towards an answer.
@Cerberus it's not off-topic because it is about lojban (it's about actual languages instead, just that lojban is the thing to compare with). it is off topic because it is crazy. what does 'imply decimal' mean? That is incoherent.
The "a-" prefix is a poetic construction that's a holdover from Middle English "y-", which is derived from Old English "ge-", a prefix attached to present and past participles. The usage is still current in German, but in English it's now used almost exclusively in poetry—normally music lyr...
@RegDwighт I think the decimal question could be considered GR (because I would expect people to know how numeral systems are represented in language, it speaks for itself). But anyway, why would you treat GR questions differently?
Entries in the OED suggest that in both words the a- prefix is derived ultimately from the preposition on, which is used, as in your examples, before the -ing forms of verbs to give the sense of ‘engaged in’. The OED has, for example, this citation from 1883:
Now let us run out and look at t...
Plus we actually are in the position to provide that link. As opposed to off-topic questions, for which part of the reason they are off-topic is that we don't have the slightest idea what you're asking so while we can tell you to please go elsewhere, we can't tell you where.
Etymology: A worn-down proclitic form of OE. preposition an, on. In compounds and common phrases this became a even in OE., as abútan, a timan. The separate an was labialized to on, which form also (in West Saxon) absorbed the prep. in, and so had the meanings on, in; unto, into, to. In 11th c., on began to be reduced before consonants to o, which from its tonelessness soon sank to a /ə/. Before a vowel an was occasionally used; when emphatic on remained. The separate a is now rarely used, being replaced by the full on, in, or the various prepositions which represe…
