Buñuelos de Viento

This is a Puerto Rican version of buñuelos

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • Peel of 1 lime


Put water butter and salt in a saucepan and bring to the boil.  Once boiling, remove immediately from the heat.  Add flour all at once, stirring vigorously to mix well.

Add eggs one at a time, mixing well before adding the next.

Have paper towels spread out to absorb oil.  

Heat oil in a deep fry pot to 370°F.  working in batches, so oil does not lose its heat, drop dough by tablespoons into the hot oil.  Fry to golden, remove and drain on paper towels.

When frying is done, let cookies cool while preparing a syrup.  Put sugar, water and lime peel in a saucepan and heat to  222°F on a candy thermometer.  Pour over the cooled cookies

Yield: About 16 - 18 buñuelos.
