Buñuelos with a Tropical Fruit Compote
Traditional dishes can be adapted to fit your lifestyle and still bring back treasured memories. Buñuelos are desserts made of fluffy or crispy dough. There are many different variations as they are made in Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Cuba, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, Ecuador, Uruguay, Spain, Venezuela, Greece, Guam, Turkey, Israel and Morocco.
In Arizona, buñuelos were found everywhere during Christmas. Large, crispy disks of dough that are drizzled with syrup and topped with powdered sugar. I’ve found that my taste buds have adapted to eating a lot less sugar after my forty pound weight loss, and I no longer enjoy such a sugar bomb.
I made these buñuelos into the perfect-size portion, and topped with a perfectly-sweet tropical fruit compote! They bring back all of the memories, without the calories.
