“This love for eating fritters, arose from the visits of my aunt Irene in the Decembrine period, she was from Lagunera blood, that is, from Torreón, Coahuila; He came to Cuernavaca very sporadically, but every time he visited us, he was forced to make Buñuelos, Punch, Flour Tortillas and Pork Head Tamales ”
Christmas arrives and with it, the delicious Fritters. I love to eat them and that inevitable contact, where I don't give a chance to get a third party (like a fork or spoon), for this occasion it's just him and me . I bathe it with a touch of scented piloncillo honey with guava and cinnamon , not too much, because it is soaked and then I can no longer hear this beautiful melody when chewing.
This love for eating fritters, arose from the visits of my aunt Irene in the Decembrine period, she was of Lagunera blood, that is, from Torreón, Coahuila; He came to Cuernavaca very sporadically, but every time he visited us, he had to make Buñuelos, Punch, Flour Tortillas and Pork Head Tamales . I still remember the aroma of butter, flour, sugar, brown sugar and the smoke that was made in our small apartment, I do not know if I have the fuzzy memory because it is very old or because you really did not see anything with that smoke; in short, my aunt stretching the dough, my mother frying, and my sister and I, covering them with sugar and eating "the one who was making us the most little eyes".
It is a pity that the recipe has been lost, I called the entire Rodriguez family, so they would pass it on to me, unfortunately no one else continues to make this dish like her, we only have the memory and nostalgia to remember the taste, so as in On other occasions, I turned to books and websites to make a mess and create the House recipe, with the help of my mother who guided me through the process.
The fritters are those dishes that bring the family together , that you share from hand to hand, that make you laugh out loud, that make living together a pleasant experience. This year, for Christmas, we close dinner with our fritters, with its bubbly and crunchy texture, with a touch of syrup and sugar that is always welcome to sweeten the night.
