Colombian doughnut

Lots of buñuelos!!! 😀

I LOVE my Colombian doughnut!!!

They are so round (how did they come out so perfectly round, I wonder?). So cute. So attractive. So delicious!!

The combination of a light crispy surface and a soft spongy chewy texture is sooo addictive! Also the perfect round ball shape is just so hard to resist!

A word of warning though – buñuelos taste nothing like doughnuts! It’s only its making that resembles that of a doughnut – buñuelos are deep fried. They are made of corn flour rather than the wheat flour that is used for the Western style doughnuts.

The bonus of buñuelo is that it’s made with cheese, so it’s savory. It gives one the excuse to say it’s healthier than doughnuts because it’s not sweet! Cleverly deceiving, right? Yes, still deep fried, but not sweet! And you can eat many more of buñuelo than you can with doughnuts without feeling sickly! 😀
