Buñuelos ( Mexican Fritters)



In Latin America, buñuelos are seen as a symbol of good luck. It is traditionally prepared at Christmas, and among Sephardic Jews at Hanukkah.
Buñuelos are quick-fried fritters topped with brown sugar syrup. They are round, thin, crispy, and delicious, and are great anytime!

In Oaxaca, Mexico, New Year's Eve Buñuelos are served on thin china plates that must be smashed against the wall or on the ground while making a wish for the new year. 






How to Make Mexican Buñuelos
  • Combine flour and salt. Mix in shortening. 
  • Add water a little at a time to make a soft dough. 
  • Knead for 5 minutes and form 9 dough balls.



On a lightly floured cutting board, with a rolling pin, roll out round thin sheets of dough as you would tortillas. Quick-fry in hot oil, drain, then top with syrup, cinnamon sugar, or just powdered sugar.
