Recipes for All Saints Day & Day of the Dead - Rosquetes al ron (Rum Donuts)

Rosquetes al ron (Rum Donuts)

We don't think we need any further description to sell these delicacies, which are again offered to us for All Saints Day by the Mercado de La Laguna (La Laguna Market). 


2 egg yolks
1 tablespoon of oil
1 tablespoon of rum
2 tablespoons sugar

In a bowl, combine the egg yolks, oil, rum and sugar, beating everything together very well. Add flour, until well combined, stirring. Place the dough on a surface, previously dusted with flour, and knead until it no longer sticks. Form the rings with tablespoon sized pieces of dough. They are then cooked in water; the proof that they are done is that they rise to the surface. Then they are then removed, drained and then fried in oil over low heat. Finally, dust the rosquetes with flour, then sugar, because sugar alone does not grip.
