Ingredients

Buñuelos:

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup ricotta
  • 2 eggbeaters
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • Vegetable oil for deep-frying

White Chocolate Sauce:

  • 1 bar white chocolate
  • 1 can condensed milk

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla

Berry Compote:

  • 1 pint strawberries
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1 pint raspberries
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Preparation

For the Buñuelos:

  • 1 Combine the dry ingredients in one bowl. Combine the wet ingredients in another. In a heavy pot place enough oil that covers (4” from the bottom) for deep-frying and heat until it reaches 325 degrees.
  • 2 Scoop out dough with a spoon and drop into the 325-degree oil and fry until golden brown. Cook only 3-4 at a time, to not drop the temperature. Fry the dough at 325 degrees until golden brown.
  • 3 Take out the bunelos when they are done and place them on a paper towel to drain the excess oil.
  • 4 On a plate spread 1 tablespoon of the white chocolate sauce and berry sauce place the fried bunuelo right on top.

For the White Chocolate Sauce:

  • 1 Place all ingredients in a heavy saucepan, at mid-low heat, until everything is melted and combined. Keep warm until ready to use.

For the Berry Compote:

  • 1 Combine all ingredients in a blow and let sit for 20 minutes. Blend and refrigerate.
