Monday’s Bread Bowl: Bunuelos Dagu

A Guam holiday treat

The Mixed Stew crew grew up preparing and craving these fried yam doughnuts, which are a Chamorro holiday tradition. Here’s our recipe:

What you will need:

1 large bowl
1 baking spatula
1 large fry-pan
1 food processor
1 large metal spoon
1 serving plate covered with paper towels
3 to 5 lbs dagu (cleaned, peeled, and cubed)
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 ½ cups canola oil
Pinch of salt

Cooking and Directions:

Place cubes of dagu into food processor and puree into a paste-like or batter consistency. Be careful not to overload. Repeat until all dagu is pureed. Pour batter into large bowl. Next, mix in flour, sugar, and baking soda into batter. Heat oil at medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Spoon and drop batter into hot oil. Each portion makes one bunuelos dagu. Let doughnuts fry until golden brown then remove from fry-pan and position on serving tray covered with paper towels.
