Looking for a sweet treat? Buñuelos are a Mexican-style dessert consisting of fried dough that is covered in cinnamon and sugar.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Schnucks all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1/4 cup Schnucks vegetable oil, plus more for frying
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt until combined. Add the water and oil, then stir until the dough comes together.
  2. Transfer the dough to clean work surface and knead for 8–10 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Roll dough into a ball, place it in a clean bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes.
  3. Divide the dough into eight balls. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each ball into 8 to 10 inch pancakes. In small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon for topping.
  4. Line a sheet pan with paper towels. In a deep skillet over medium-high heat, bring an inch of oil to 350 degrees. Fry the dough for about 1 minute on each side or until golden brown. Transfer to the sheet pan and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar; repeat with remaining dough. Serve immediately.
