Lent Food: Corbatas

Rudy Giron: AntiguaDailyPhoto.com &emdash; Lent Food: Corbatas

As explained before, corbatas are fried flour-based crunchy dessert soaked in syrup or honey. Corbatas take their name from the shape they are cooked into. I believe corbatas are known as buñuelos in Mexico, which are not at all like the Guatemalan buñuelos. What’s the name of corbatas in English?

When was the last time you had corbatas if ever?

    I don’t believe we had an equivalent to the corbata in the States. The closest we might come is Native American fried bread dough often found at carnivals and fairs. Soft and chewy, not crispy like the corbata. Most often, it’s served covered with cinnamon and sugar or powdered sugar. Tasty nonetheless!
