It was good. But it didn't include any of the syrups and if I remember correctly it said "Drizzle with one of the following syrups." and no syrups were listed

I don't know about authentic, I have had these all my life and being Mexican I am a little stumped as to what makes this recipe authentic. Just saying! it is an okay recipe but lacks that puffiness a real buenuelo has. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in milk, and mix until the dough comes together. Add more flour if necessary to be able to handle the dough. On a floured surface, knead the dough until smooth, at least 5 minutes. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes.
Great recipe but should be called Mexican flat buenelos
the eggs, etc will take away from the puffiness and pure joy of eating it

Great recipe!!! First time making them and they came out very good. My mom even liked them and she knows how to make them. One helpful hint, because they are made with butter they burn easily in the pan so toast them quickly.
