Teresita's Puñaladas - Sweet 'Doughnutty' Bites!

I have just returned from Argentina and brought with me a bundle of new delicious family recipes.  One of my favourites that I had the joy of making in my Aunty Lemy's kitchen was a treat called Puñaladas.  Now... this isn't actually what this dish is called - but no-one knows the real name!! The treats where christened by Aunty Lemy's husband, who, when his sister Teresita had made them - ate so many he said it felt like Teresita had 'punched' him in the stomach...and they forever became known as Teresita's Puñaladas (Teresita's little punches!).

This is one of those - trust me recipes's good!

You can watch the live recipe on Cocina de Mama's YouTube channel.


  • 4 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons of sugar
  • 4 tablespoons of oil
  • 1 cup of milk
  • teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 500g self raising flour
  • icing sugar

Beat eggs,sugar and oil.  Add the milk and vanilla essence.  Slowly add flour and make a soft dough.  You may need to add more flour if it is too sticky.  The dough should be soft and moist.

Let the dough rest for an hour.

Roll out the dough and cut out in small shapes.

Traditionally these are made with oval shaped cookie cutters - but you can use round cutters as well.

Heat up a pan of oil.  Once the oil is hot place the Puñaladas in the oil until they are golden brown.  Place in a large bowl and sprinkle liberally with icing sugar....

Eat warm!

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz,
