I give you <drumroll, please> today’s Advent activity!
I’m using the term “activity” loosely here – these involve hot oil, so the only involvement the boys had was eating them. Elias was a huge fan, but Levi said they have too much sugar. This from the boy who wants 17 popsicles a day.
This is sort of a nod to Elias’ heritage, though I know they’re not authentic. These probably relate to authentic Guatemalan bunuelos as much as a Taco Bell quesadilla relates to anything actually eaten in Mexico. Bunuelos vary regionally, and in many countries they’re sort of like a small round doughnut. This is more of a tribute to the elephant ear. Honestly, I chose this recipe because I thought I could probably manage it without too much trouble. (True.) And I had all the ingredients in the house already. (Bonus!) Lazy or practical? You decide.
Either way, they were in fact pretty tasty.
