    Wildflour's Note:

    My mom used to make these every year with her Spanish class students. We LOVE them! Kind of a mexican version of elephant ears, but different. VERY addicting! This makes a lot, so you may want to cut the recipe in half.

      These are an amazing and easy to make treat. Don't believe me? I, a 15 year old highschool student and my friend, also a 15 year old made them perfectly in about 25 minutes. (Ironically for a spanish project)

      I never thought of doing Buñuelos in a ball (they tasted like Churros, so my Hubby said) My family loved these. I have a recipe for Buñuelos, which I will post. Mine has white wine in it and other ingredients. Thanks for the recipe. My daughter enjoyed putting them into balls.

      Well, I don't know what I did wrong. I followed the directions perfectly and had a lot of fun making them, but they turned out horrible. I expected something like an elephant ear or fluffy doughnut almost, instead I got little biscuits. I'm not sure what I should've added more or less of, but they were quite the disappointment. The insides taste undone and the outside is like a biscuit. Maybe my oil was too hot? Although, the stove was only on 2/5. <br/>I remember my mom would make these and I loved them. If anyone could tell me what I may have done wrong, I greatly appreciate it. Like I said, these made correctly are amazing from what I remember. For some reason mine just didn't turn out at all. :/
