Various spellings include: bunuelos bimuelos, birmuelos, bermuelos, burmuelos, bunyols

Bunelos are fritters traditionally eaten at Christmas. To make bunelos, a yeasted dough with a hint of anise is deep-fried then drenched in a syrup of brown sugar, cinnamon, and guava. Source

There are references to bunyelos in Mallorca; bunelos in Turkey, India, and Cuba; and bunuelos in Russia.

Southwestern bunuelos are coated with sugar and cinnamon (like malasadas).

Popular types of bread in Mijas (Spain) include bunuelos and homazos. The Spanish have a real appetite for mixing the sweet and savoury, a tradition which has its origins in the Arab occupation, as the Moorish invaders also combined different types of food in one meal.

No matter how you spell it or where it came from, this fine dessert can be made with OSO-ONO Fried Dessert Dough.
