• 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tbsp. salt
  • Warm water
  • 4 tbsp. oil for frying
  • Granulated sugar
  • Ground cinnamon


  1. Make the dough by adding all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Mix together until combined. Add warm water and 4 tablespoons oil. Mix together with a fork until the dough comes together. 
  2. Transfer the dough onto a clean working surface and knead the dough for 8 to 10 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic. Roll the dough into a ball, place it in a bowl, cover with a kitchen towel, and let it rest for 30 minutes. 
  3. Roll out the dough by diving it into 8 separate pieces and rolling each piece into a ball. Ona a lightly floured surface, use a floured rolling pin to roll out each ball into an 8 to 10- inch circle. 
  4. Fry the dough by heating frying oil to 350° F. Fry each dough circle for about 60 seconds, turning once with metal tongs, until golden brown on both sides. Transfer to the prepared plate to drain any excess oil. 
  5. Garnis the buñuelos with cinnamon sugar.
