Holiday traditions in Maltrata: Buñuelos

Buñuelos are a typical treat prepared in Maltrata around the holidays. They day we made them, a lot of the extended family came over to help. We had quite the assembly line going! 

The first step is to make the dough (I missed that part and can't remember what's in it either! Sorry!)

Then, the dough is cut into balls, rolled, and stretched out.

Then the buñuelo is fried. (The oil was changed right after the photo, so the buñuelos are a a little darker than normal in these photos)

And then they're ready to be eaten! They can be eaten plain or with honey and sugar or condensed milk.
