Mini-Buñuelos with Honey Cream

Mini-Buñuelos with Honey Cream

by Ericka Sanchez

Buñuelos are one of our favorite weekend treats. Honey is the star of this recipe because no other sweetener is needed! Pair it with a delicious honey cream and you've got yourself a decadent after dinner Mexican dessert. 

What you'll need

  • 1 cup honey
  • 4- 8" flour tortillas
  • oil for frying (canola or vegetable oil)
  • 1 cup crème fraiche
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

How to make it

  1. Cut out each tortilla with 4"-inch round cookie cutters. Fold each side of the cut out piece over on opposite sides so as to allow both folds to meet in the center, forming a pocket. 
  2. Heat 1-inch of cooking oil in large skillet. Once hot, fry each tortilla pocket until golden brown, pressing down with spatula to keep the pocket shape. Place on paper towels to drain excess oil. Let cool. 
  3. Place ½ cup honey in a small bowl. Once tortillas are cool, carefully brush each one with honey.
  4. In a small saucepan over low heat, warm the remaining ½ cup of honey until easily stirred. Add crème fraiche and cinnamon. Continue stirring until all ingredients have thoroughly combined. 
  5. Serve buñuelos drizzled with the honey cream or on the side for dipping.
