Buñuelos (crispy fried wafers)

Try your hand at the following recipe for panderia treats, provided by Mary Rosales of Mi Terra bakery in San Antonio.

  • 4 c. flour
  • 1 T. white vinegar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 3 T. shortening
  • 1/2 c. orange juice
  • warm water
  • oil for frying
  • sugar and cinnamon

Combine flour, vinegar, baking powder, egg, shortening, and orange juice. Add water to make a dough.

Slice chunks of dough and roll very thin into the desired disk size. In a skillet large enough to hold the rolled disks of dough without bending, heat oil. Drop disks, one at a time, into the hot oil and fry until crisp.

Remove from oil, drain on paper towels, and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
