My DIY weekend project 6: bunyols de vent

Hey pixels, this is my DIY this week!!!! Bunyols!!! It’s a classic recipe from my town, we use to make them every year, the first day of november. We don’t celebrate Halloween here, but this other one: Dia de Tots Sants.


As you can see, our bunyols look like small pancakes; they are also sweet and lovely to eat. You can dip them in honey, they are great this way!! I hope you like them!! πŸ˜‰ Oh, and of course, you can make them every time you want, they are not only for one day πŸ˜‰

Ingredients (for Β 15-20 units, if you want more, just double the amounts):

  • 1 egg
  • 50g butter or margarine
  • 75g sugar
  • 20g yeast
  • 1 small potato (for a sweeter version you can use a sweet potato)
  • 125g flour
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • optional: honey to dip/ powder sugar to decorate


First, peel and boil the potato until tender (about 20′). Allow to cool. With a fork, smash the potato, add the sugar and mix well.

Mix the yeast with the warm water. When it’s well mixed, add the combination of sugar and potato. It’s better to make the dough in a big bowl, it will grow a lot later.

In this order, add: margarine, egg and flour. Mix before each new addition.

When you have a consistent dough (look at the photo above), cover the bowl with a clean napkin and wait until it doubles its size. It takes about 1 hour 30′

And now it’s time to fry!!! Take small portions of dough, about a tablespoon per each one, and fry in vegetable oil (2-3′ per side).

If you want, decorate with powder sugar. Serve with a bowl of honey, so you can dip yours.
