These little cuties are EASY and very authentic - nothing nutritional, really, but very tasty - I ate these almost everyday for breakfast when I lived in Spain!
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
7 oz. canola oil
1 TB. baking powder
The rind from 1 lemon
Mix all of the ingredients together. Let it rest for 1-2 hours in the fridge (covered). When it is time to bake, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Fill the muffin cups (use liners - these will stick) about 2/3 full. I like to sprinkle the tops with a little bit of sugar, this is how they are in Spain. Bake for 12-15 minutes - they will have risen and turned a very LIGHT golden color. Do not overbake because they will dry out! Keep leftovers in an airtight container.
These are best dipped in hot chocolate!!! :)
