It is one street food sold in the many stalls that are set up in Mexico during the holidays, where you can find both flat and round, similar to the fritters of the carnival, which, in the more elaborate versions, in the shape of a flower.

The result will be a fairly thick batter which, once dipped in seed oil with the help of a mold, will create pancakes that are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. The last step involves rolling the still hot pancakes into a mix of sugar and cinnamon, which will make them fragrant and even more delicious. Alternatively, you can dress the buñuelos with del miele or with one sweet syrup flavored with cinnamon, anise e cloves.
