Buñuelos are a type of Latin-American fried pastry.

Ingredients[edit]

  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup vegetable oil for frying

Directions[edit]

  1. In a large bowl combine eggs with 1/4 cup sugar and beat until thick and lemon-colored. Add the oil. Combine separately 1-1/2 cups of the flour, the baking powder and the salt.
  2. Gradually add this to the egg mixture and beat well.
  3. Turn dough out onto a floured board (use remaining 1/2 cup flour) and knead thoroughly until dough is smooth.
  4. Shape dough into sixteen balls. Roll each one into a circle about 5 inches in diameter. Let stand uncovered on waxed paper for about 10 minutes.
  5. Heat oil in a deep fry pan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Fry circles until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Store in an airtight container.
