|2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Sugar
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 Egg, beaten
1/2 tsp. Butter
1 cup Milk
Oil for Frying
|Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar,
and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Add the egg, butter and milk.
Mix together these ingredients
mixture should resemble bread
well, for about 5 minutes.
Place dough into a stainless
steel pan or
glass bowl and cover with wax
rest for two hours.
Roll out dough onto a floured cutting board
to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into 2" squares.
Lay squares into hot oil and fry for 30 seconds
on each side, until they just start to brown.
They cook really fast, so you will have to
work quickly. Baste the top of each buñuelo
as it cooks. You will see that they quickly
puff up into light, fluffy "pillows".
Drain on paper towels and serve immediately.
