Huevos Chilenos - Ecuadorian Mini Donut Centers

The "Chilean eggs" are a typical sweets from Ecuador.

They are a sort of donut or mini donut centers.

Why they are called Chilean when they are from Ecuador is a mystery to me.

The egg part is a bit more understandable, since they are small, about the size of an egg, and round.

But not exactly egg shaped.

The most important thing about them is that they are very delicious.

They are a very popular street food and sold everywhere.

But can also easily be made at home.

What you will need for the recipe:


1 dry yeast (or 2 and 1/4 tsp)
1 1/4 cup warm milk

Mix and add

3 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup softened butter
1 tsp salt
Caraway or aniseed essence

stir well

and add

5 cups of flour

Form soft dough and let rise.

Once to twice its volume stretch and cut the threads and form little balls with your hands.

Submerge the balls in boiling oil until they are golden.

Sprinkle sugar on the balls and ENJOY!
