Rosquillas are fluffy, sugar-coated fried Spanish donuts. They have a classic doughnut shape with a hole in the center, but they’re smaller and more delicate than American style doughnuts.

These doughnuts come from Spain and are similar to churros in their ingredients and cooking methods. However, unlike churros, they’re round. They’re traditionally enjoyed as a snack or dessert food in Spain. You may find them drizzled with chocolate or coated in powdered sugar throughout the country.

How to Make Rosquitas: Step-by-Step Instructions

First, in a small bowl, whisk together the sugar, two eggs, melted butter, lemon zest until smooth with a whisk.  Add the water and whisk again to make a wet mixture.
