"This love for eating fritters, arose from the visits of my aunt Irene in December, she was of Lagunera blood, that is, from Torreón, Coahuila; He came to Cuernavaca very sporadically, but each one that visited us was obliged to make Buñuelos, Ponche, Flour Tortillas and Pig Head Tamales ”
Christmas is coming and with it, the delicious Buñuelos. I love to eat them and that inevitable contact, where I don't give a chance to a third party (such as a fork or spoon) getting in the way, this time it's just me and him . I bathe it with a little touch of honey of piloncillo scented with guava and cinnamon , not too much, because it is soaked and then I will not be able to hear this beautiful melody when chewing.
This love for eating fritters, arose from the visits of my aunt Irene in December, she was of Lagunera blood, that is, from Torreón, Coahuila; He came to Cuernavaca very sporadically, but each one that visited us was obliged to make Buñuelos, Ponche, Flour Tortillas and Pig Head Tamales . I still remember the aroma of butter, flour, sugar, piloncillo and the smoke that was made in our small apartment. I don't know if I have a blurred memory because it is very old or because you really didn't see anything with that smoke; Anyway, my aunt stretching the dough, my mom frying, and my sister and I, covering them with sugar and eating "the one that was making the most eyes".
It is a pity that the recipe has been lost, I called the entire Rodríguez family to pass it to me, unfortunately no one else continues to make this dish like her, we only have the memory and nostalgia when remembering the flavor, so as in Other times, I turned to books and internet pages to make a mess and create House's recipe, with the help of my mother who guided me in the process.
Donuts are one of those dishes that bring the family together , that you share from hand to hand, that make you laugh out loud, that make coexistence an enjoyable experience. This year, for Christmas, we close the dinner with our fritters, with its bubbly and crisp texture, with a touch of syrup and sugar that is always welcome to sweeten us up for the night.
