Learn how to make traditional Mexican Buñuelos with this easy and simple recipe. 🌾
2 Cups All Purpose Flour (280g)
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder (5g)
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract (15ml)
1 Tablespoon Melted Butter (15ml)
2 Cups Corn or Vegetable Oil
1/4 Cup Sugar (48g)
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon Powder (6g)
1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. Make a fountain at the center of the dry ingredients and add to it the vanilla, butter, and eggs. Stir together until moist. Gradually add a little warm water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until a soft and elastic dough forms. Cover dough and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
2. Divide dough in half. Roll out as thin as possible. Use a plate about 7 inches wide to trace around and cut out circles from the dough.
3. In a pan, heat oil over low heat. Drop a small piece of dough into oil to test if it is hot. If the oil starts to bubble around the dough, it is ready. Carefully drop each disk into the oil. Cook each side until it is golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer each buñuelo onto paper towels to let drain.
4. Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a plate or bowl. Sprinkle and rub the cinnamon sugar onto both sides of each buñuelo while still warm. Serve buñuelos warm or at room temperature.
