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)...lol 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.

Real bunuelos do not have eggs, milk and are made with Crisco not butter. The taste is cleaner and they come out crispier and golden not dark. the recipe is just like making tortillas but it has more baking powder to make them fluffy.

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. :/

I had to make a spanish recipe for my spanish class and this was a great recipe. It was very delicious and not that time consuming. The only thing I had a hard time with was how messy it was. I spent as much time cleaning as I did prepping and cooking. But overall it was a quick and a great tasting recipe.

Made these for a dinner party and a novelty for the guests. Easy to make and true to the ingredients/recipe.

So true........very addicting. I rolled our bunuelos into ropes (forming circles) and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. A very nice brunch idea. Thanks, again, Wildflour, for another tasty recipe.

SO GOOD!!!! I made them into balls and fried them, as well as cut the recipe in half and got 15 golf balled sized treats. Will be making much more often!!!
