On cold winter nights, the treat I crave most is buñuelos. In Mexico, take to the streets and you’ll see women in aprons seated in front of the fire and large pots busy preparing these donut-like treats. You can enjoy them sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar, or drizzled with a cinnamon and aniseed syrup.
Now that I no longer live in Mexico, I sometimes miss going out to the street with my mom or abuelita to eat a plate of hot buñuelos and enjoy a steamy cup of atolito. The good news is, you can prepare buñuelos at home, and today I am going to teach you how.
