Rosquillas en Miel

“La rosquilla en miel es la mamá, no le busquen lado. Primero que todo, no es cualquier rosquilla pues es una especial que hacen en Olancho. Traída de allá, entiendo que se fríen. Luego hacen la miel, que es una miel especial con rapadura de dulce y palitos de canela. Una vez está al tiempo después de hervirlas en la miel, se meten a la refri y luego a la hora de servir, se sirve la rosquilla helada. Mi mamá así lo hace. También me voy a Asados El Gordo solo por una, allí venden unas buenísimas. En la Placita de Susy también, son blanditas y les echan un poco de limón y eso mejora el sabor. Es el único postre dulce que me gusta por que no es un postre pesado, pero siempre las acompaño con agua porque sí que empalagan.”

  This is a year-round dessert in Honduras, well-known in the country overall. Made with strictly native ingredients, it’s one of those things that Hondurans living abroad cannot get their hands on! ‘Rosquillas’ are bagel-like treat, made with cheese, lard, and – you guessed it! – maize. ‘Rapadura de dulce’ is essentially raw sugar cane, sold in blocks and used in all the traditional desserts as the sugar reduction. This dessert is incredibly sweet, and in a region known for sugar production, it’s no wonder the locals are crazy for them. To many locals, especially the rural farmers, a chance is never missed to enjoy one with a cup of coffee, whether for breakfast, as a snack, or even for dessert!
