Buñuelos / Toya Legido – ICEX

Yesterday, November 1st, was El Día de Todos los Santos, or All Saint’s Day here in Spain, a historic  national holiday that, like so many others in this country, is marked by the appearance of traditional sweets that fill the cases in pastry shops and panaderías in the weeks before its celebration.

Never fear though if you haven’t had the chance to try these delights – which can vary slightly from region to region, but often include pastries like the delicious and doughy fried buñuelos or the super sweet huesos de santo (saint’s bones) –, there is still time over the next couple of days.

However, it’s best not to delay too long to get your fill of these Saintly Sweets: Traditional Spanish Confections for All Saint’s Day or you may have to wait another year!
