Enjoy this recipe in which we tell you how to make Mexican fritters. We made them with an iron mold and with original colors that you can use for National Holidays or for Christmas.

The origin of the buñuelos is uncertain, previously they were called "puñuelos" since the shape was made with the fists. What is known is that this dessert arrived in Mexico due to the Conquest and was transformed with the use of Mexican ingredients.
