I hope this holiday season, you enjoy the little things with those you love.


2 c of flour

1 ½ tsp baking powder

½ cup melted butter

½ c room temp milk

2 eggs

Pinch of salt


Ground cinnamon



*In a small plate mix ½ c of sugar and 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon

And set aside to sprinkle the buñuelos once they are cooked.

*Sift flour, baking soda and salt over your working surface.

*Open up the dry ingredients and add butter, eggs and begin to mix with your hands.

*Add milk a little at a time.

*Knead until everything comes together.

*If too soft, add a little bit of flour at a time until you can make 

A solid ball without dough sticking to your hands.

*Knead for 5 minutes.

*Divide the dough into 14-16 small balls.

*Heat up cooking oil on medium high.

*While oil is heating up, spread a pinch of flour on your working surface

And roll out each dough ball to create a round buñuelo until it’s almost transparent.

*Once your oil is hot, place one buñuelo at a time in the oil.

*Using 2 forks, spin buñuelo until the sides are golden brown and flip, occasionally poking the bubbles with the forks.

*Once the other side is golden brown remove the buñuelo from the oil, placing them on

A plate covered in paper towns.

*Sprinkle desired sugar and cinnamon mix.
