This Hanukkah sweet comes from Mexico and is very similar to a flattened doughnut. For a flavour twist, instead of tossing the bu?uelos with cinnamon sugar, drizzle them with honey, toss them with icing sugar or cut them in half lengthwise and serve with jam.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Dough:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • vegetable oil for deep-frying

Method

Dough: In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in shortening until in coarse crumbs. Whisk egg with 1/2 cup water; stir into flour mixture. Turn out onto lightly floured surface; knead until smooth.

Make-ahead: Wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before continuing.

On lightly floured surface, flatten dough to scant 1-inch (2.5 cm) thickness; cut into 24 pieces. Shape each into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick disc. Cover and let rest for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, pour enough oil into large deep skillet or Dutch oven to come 1 inch (2.5 cm) up side. Heat until deep-fryer thermometer reads 375 F (190 C) or 1-inch (2.5 cm) cube of white bread turns golden brown in 40 seconds. Fry discs, in batches and turning once, until puffed and golden, about 2 minutes. Drain on paper towel–lined plate.

Meanwhile, in bowl, whisk sugar with cinnamon; in batches, add bu?uelos and toss to coat.

Make-ahead: Set aside for up to 1 hour.
