Ingredients

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl stir together 1-1/4 cups of the flour, the yeast, and canela. In a small saucepan heat milk, sugar, shortening, and salt just until warm (120°F to 130°F) and the shortening is almost melted, stirring constantly.

Instructions Checklist
  • Add the heated mixture to the flour mixture. Add egg. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping sides of bowl constantly. Beat for 3 minutes on high speed. Using a wooden spoon, stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough (dough will still be slightly sticky to the touch). Place dough in a greased bowl; turn once to grease surface. Cover bowl and chill dough in the refrigerator for 3 to 24 hours.

Instructions Checklist
  • Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll dough into an 18x12-inch rectangle. Cut dough into thirty-six 3x2-inch rectangles. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes (dough will not be doubled).

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 200°F. In a large, deep saucepan or deep-fat fryer heat 2 inches of vegetable oil to 375°F. Fry dough rectangles, two or three at a time, in hot oil for about 1 minute or until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Keep buñuelos warm in oven while frying remaining dough rectangles. Serve warm. If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with Anise Syrup.
