Ready for some wholesome and tasty Fall recipes? Buñuelos are the ideal dessert or snack, especially when paired with some delicious champurrado.
For the Batter
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup of milk, at room temperature 2 large eggs, at room temperature 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4. cups canola oil, Divided
For the Cinnamon Sugar Topping
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 cup granulated sugar.
1. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate medium bowl, whisk the milk and eggs, add the sugar and vanilla, and whisk again. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix to create the batter. Set aside.
2. Pour 4 cups of the oil into a deep pan over medium heat. Check the heat by dipping a wooden spoon into the hot oil; if it sizzles, it’s ready.
3. While the oil heats up, make the topping: In a shallow bowl, mix the cinnamon and sugar and set aside.
4. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the remaining. cup of oil to keep the buñuelo mold hot in between each buñuelo. Once the buñuelo mold has been sitting in the oil for about 1 minute, pat the oil off with a paper towel. Dip the hot mold into the batter enough to cover the entire mold without going over the top edges of the mold. Immediately place into the 4 cups oil; when the fried dough starts separating from the mold, after about 1 minute, begin to carefully shake the mold in order to help the buñuelo to release from the mold. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes each side. Watch carefully as they can easily burn. Drain on a cooling rack and transfer to the sugar cinnamon mixture to coat both sides. Repeat the process for each buñuelo. Serve on a platter.
