Have you ever tried bunuelos? Bunuelos might be the easiest sweet tortilla recipe that you can find. In fact it is sugared pan fried tortilla. As they are so easy to make you can actually make them fresh when family and friends come over. But to prevent your house smelling like a fried food all day long you can easily make them in advance.

How to maken sweet bunuelos tortilla cream cheese cake

For this cake I used 3 small tortilla because when you eat a piece of this pie be prepared to not eat for the rest of the day. However you can stack it up as high as you like. I have seen bunuelos cake up to 8 layers.

To make sweet bunuelos tortilla cream cheese cake I use the following ingredients:

  • 3 small tortilla
  • Sugar
  • Coconut/Palm sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Homemade Nutella
  • Cocoa powder
  • Raspberries
  • Blue berries
  • Cream cheese
  • Vegetable oil for pan fryng

Put the sugar, palm sugar and cinnamon on a big plate and stir trough. The pre heat a small pan that fits one tortilla. I do not like to heat a big pan of oil as I do not want to throw away a lot of oil so there for a small pan This works just as well when you put 5 to 6 table spoons of oil in a small skillet.

When you put tortilla in hot oil they will puff up and brown in matter of seconds. So be prepared with your tongs to scoop them out of the oil when they brown and turn the tortilla to fry the other side.

When you take them out of the frying pan and put them straight into the sugar cinnamon mix your treat is done. With the oil still on the tortilla the sugar will stick to the tortilla.

You can put them on a kitchen paper to drain excess oil. However I find that when you fry them on the right temperature for a couple of seconds you do not get a lot of excess oil.

Now it is time to layer your cake. You start with a bunuelos, then spread some (homemade) Nutella on top. Then a ring of cream cheese. Push the cream cheese down a little with a spoon.

Sprinkle some of the sugar mix on the cream cheese. Repeat with a second layer and add cocoa powder. For the final layer I start with Nutella again but decorate the whole top with cream cheese, sprinkle with a little sugar mix and cocoa powder. Finally decorate with some raspberries and blue berries. The colors look so pretty on the sweet bunuelos tortilla cream cheese cake.

Decorating options for sweet bunuelos tortilla cream cheese cake

  • Nuts – if you like nuts you can put some whole or finely chopped roasted almonds, pecan or walnuts on the top layer of the Sweet bunuelos tortilla cream cheese cake
  • Honey – Drizzle some honey on the top layer of the Sweet bunuelos tortilla cream cheese cake for some extra sweetness
  • Syrup – do not like honey substitute with syrup instead
  • Fruit – layer on the fruits. I only used the fruit to decorate the top but you can put a slice of pineapple between every layer or slice some strawberries and put them inside the cream cheese ring per layer. What about thin slices of banana on every bunuelos. Apples or apple pie filling will work really well with or without the cream cheese. As you can see the options are endless
