Bunuelos de Viento are light and fluffy, and practically melt in your mouth. Serve them for a snack or dessert. Like many Spanish desserts, bunuelos are lightly fried, and dusted with powdered sugar and/or filled with pastry cream, egg custard or marmalade. Every Spanish cook has their own recipe for classics like bunuelos. Some have a touch of baking powder, some don't. Our version has just a bit to make sure the fritters puff into light and airy balls. We like to fill them with a simple egg custard, and serve at the end of a special brunch or dinner. They would make a wonderful addition to your Mother's Day menu.
