2 eggs
¹/3 cup of oil

How to do it

In a large bowl, mix the yeast, warm water and a pinch of sugar. Let stand for a few minutes to allow the yeast to grow and dissolve.

Mix the remaining sugar, milk, vanilla, eggs, oil, salt and half the flour. Knead for about 5 minutes (by hand or in the dough mixer), adding the remaining flour as needed to form a smooth, elastic dough.

Place in a greased bowl and cover to let it grow for about 30 to 40 minutes.

Knead the dough gently.

Remove pieces of dough the size of a golf ball and knead with a roller until it is oval in shape and let it rest covered with a towel.

Fry the dough in hot oil and drain it on paper towel.

Pass in the sugar with cinnamon or in the cover that you wish.
