This recipe was given to me by a good friend from Puerto Rico. Almohabanas are savory doughnuts. They are made in Puerto Rico usually around Christmas Time. They are soft and delicious, great as appetizers. Please ENJOY!
2 cups of corn flour
1 8oz package ( Farmer's cheese of mexican cheese crumbled)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 stick of melted butter
2cups of milk
3/4 teaspoon of salt
3 cups of oil
deep skillet to fry them in.
Mix all the dry ingredients, add the butter, eggs,milk, and last the cheeses. The dough should not be wet but dry enough to handle. Let it rest for at least 30 minutes. Start heating the oil (medium heat not too hot). With a large spoon pick the dough and drop them slowly to the oil, 2-4 at a time. They should be lightly brown on the outside and soft on the inside like a doughnut. Repeat process make sure the oil does not get too hot or they will burn..
feel free to roll them in more parmesan while they are hot if you feel it needs it...They are DELICIOUS..
