All Saints’ Day. Also called All Hallows or Hallowmas
It is customary in Spain to make this little treats for the festivity of all Saints. My good friend Mª Angeles agreed to lend me her recipe and that’s what I bring you today.
I hope you like them.
The buñuelos can be filled with custard, chocolate, whipped cream, and so on. Mine are filled with Nutella, my kids love it.
50 g. butter
A pinch of salt
Same amount of flour than water
½ sachet baking powder (8 g. Royal’s Baking powder)
Heat the water in a saucepan with butter and salt. Bring mixture to boil and remove from heat. Add flour all at the same time and mix well with a spatula until smooth. Let it cool a bit and add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Finally add half packet of baking powder.
Put plenty of oil in a pan over medium heat, and fry the dough into balls the size of a walnut (formed with the help of two teaspoons) When they swell up rise the oil temperature to brown.
Let them to drain and when they are cool, make a small hole and fill with whatever you like.
