What Are Some Mexican Dessert Recipes?


One Mexican dessert recipe is for buñuelos. The ingredients include 4 cups of flour; 1 teaspoon of baking powder; 1 teaspoon of salt; 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of sugar. There's also 1 cup of milk, 4 tablespoons of butter, oil for frying, and a mix of cinnamon and sugar.

In a large bowl, mix in the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Beat the eggs and milk in a smaller bowl, and then add gradually the wet ingredients to the flour mixture, whisking all the while. Beat in half a stick of melted butter.

Flour a work surface, and place the dough on it. Knead the dough until it is elastic and satiny smooth. Roll the dough into ropes or balls, then flatten.

Bring the oil to 370 degrees Fahrenheit, then fry the balls or ropes in batches. Drain them on paper towels, and then roll them in the mix of cinnamon and sugar.

Another recipe is for leche quemada. The necessary ingredients include 6 cups of sugar, 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 large cans of Carnation milk.

Bring 5 1/2 cups of the sugar, the milk and the butter to a boil. Brown the remaining half cup of sugar in a skillet, and then add it to the milk and sugar mixture. Cook until it reaches the soft ball stage. Beat with an electric mixer, and then hand mix until the mixture is fairly solid. Drop spoonfuls on wax paper, and sprinkle the balls with chopped nuts.
