Buñuelos - Columbian Fried Cheese Puffs (Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from Lin Goldkrantz.

Ads by Google:

1 pound white cheese (preferably Colombian cheese)
1½ cup cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt

Grind the cheese. Mix the cheese with the cornstarch, eggs, brown sugar and salt. Make little balls, the size of a golf ball, and put into medium-hot vegetable oil and fry slowly. After a few minutes increase temperature and fry them until they are golden brown. When they are ready place them on paper towels to drain the oil. Makes 15 buñuelos. welcomes your comments below (registration is NOT required).

Awesome!! I can't wait to try it. The Columbian diet has many corn-based 'breads' for breakfast that are great for the Gluten Free Diet. There's another recipe (if you can find it) called Almohadanas that is similar to this recipe and they are great for Gluten Free Egg McMuffin type breakfasts.

And if you ever have the chance to travel to the beautiful country of Colombia they sell a packaged Buneulo mix that is totally Gluten Free. It incorporates flour from Yucca. It is awesome!!! I also find Colombia to be one of the easiest places to visit and eat Gluten Free. It is a corn-based food culture.

I've tried these before from a Columbian bakery and they were tasty. I would like to try this recipe, but I'm skeptical about all of the corn starch being the base. Are you sure there's no flour or did you mean corn flour and less corn starch maybe?
