Buñuelos are a type of Latin-American fried pastry.




  1. In a large bowl combine eggs with ¼ cup sugar, and beat until thick and lemon-colored. Add the oil.
  2. Combine 1 ½ cups of the flour, the baking powder, and the salt. Gradually add this to the egg mixture and beat well.
  3. Turn dough out onto a floured board (use remaining ½ cup flour) and knead thoroughly until dough is smooth.
  4. Shape dough into 16 balls. Roll each one into a circle about 5 inches (13 cm) in diameter. Let stand uncovered on waxed paper for about 10 minutes.
  5. Heat oil in a deep frying pan to 350°F (175°C). Fry dough circles until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels.
  6. Combine the cinnamon and 1 cup sugar. Sprinkle fried dough with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Store in an airtight container.
