Bunyols de vent (wind doughnuts), caragirat

Also called ‘caragirats' (‘turncoats'), these ‘bunyols' are a variation on the type usually eaten during Lent. They are called ‘wind' doughnuts because the dough is softer than usual, giving the impression that they are hollow.

They are made from a dough of milk, butter, flour, sugar, lemon zest and egg. Once they have been shaped they are fried in oil, where they jump about and seem to flip over of their own accord; hence the name ‘turncoat'. When they are ready they are removed from the pan and sprinkled with icing sugar.
