I’m linking up with Mama Kat today for her Writer’s Workshop! 🙂 I chose prompt two: Has the internet inspired you? Share a tip, recipe or craft you attempted after seeing it posted on the internet. I’m proud to share this recipe shared by the lovely Leslie of La Cocina de Leslie!
Buñuelos used to be a family tradition for us around Christmastime, but when my grandmother passed away in January of 2000, the tradition passed with her. It’s my dream to bring it back to life, but I was too little to remember her recipe.
But Leslie came to the rescue with an easy recipe for me, that brought the tradition back to life for me and my family, even though it wasn’t exactly grandma’s recipe. 🙂
The recipe is actually quite simple. All you need is a sugar and cinnamon mixture, flour tortillas (homemade is best) and vegetable oil.
Instructions (excuse me for my lack of photos!): Heat the oil over a medium-high heat in a large skillet. Then, carefully, place a tortilla in the hot oil until it’s a golden brown on both sides. Take the tortilla out of the oil and place it on lined paper towels letting it sit for a while so the excess oil is collected. Then, the best part, sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on both sides of the tortilla. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas! 🙂
Easy, right?! And they were SUPER delicious! The kids here enjoyed them with syrup while drinking hot cocoa. 🙂 I’m so glad we were able to bring grandma’s tradition back to life!
