Buñuelos

These sweet doughnuts are perfect for an afternoon treat

Serves 24

  • 4 cups flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoon butter (melted)
  • Oil for frying
  • ½  cup cinnamon/sugar mixture

In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, mix the eggs and milk and incorporate into the dry ingredients. Then add the melted butter. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead till it feels silken. Meanwhile, heat the oil. Roll the dough into small golf ball-sized portions and drop into the hot oil. Once they are golden brown, remove, drain and toss in the cinnamon/sugar mixture.

Make a dozen extra, as I guarantee that every time you pass this plate of buñuelos, you will pop one in your mouth, not even considering the neighbors stopping by for a few once they smell that oh-so-familiar scent.
