How to Make Sweet Fritters
Known as buñuelos in Spain and Latin America, sweet fritters are a typical snack prepared around festivities like Christmas, Hanukkah, and Ramadan, depending on the country’s traditions. They’re easy to make at home and are gaining popularity in other places in the world thanks to their vibrant, sweet taste, which is similar to that of donuts.
5-Minute Crafts shows you how to make this delicious snack in just 6 simple steps.
- 1½ cups of flour
- 3/4 of a cup milk
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 tsp of yeast
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 pinch of salt
- Powdered sugar to taste
- About 2 cups of oil
- Use a sieve to sift the flour together with the sugar, salt, and yeast. It is important that the mixture you end up with has no lumps. Repeat this process as many times as needed to avoid the lumps.
Make a hole in the center of the mixture of flour and add the egg, vanilla, and milk.
Mix all the ingredients until they’re well combined.
Place a skillet on the stove over medium heat and pour in the oil. Once it gets hot, use a spoon to take the batter and scoop in a few portions of the mixture at a time. There should be approximately 4-8 fritters, depending on the size of the skillet you’re using. This will prevent the fritters from sticking together while frying.
Fry for approximately 3 minutes. Turn them during the process until both sides have a golden brown color.
- Sprinkle the fritters with powdered sugar.
