I’ve just acquired my first buñuelo mold and read that seasoning it is crucial before the first use. Could anyone share their method for doing this? I want to make sure I’m starting off right to avoid any future issues. Looking forward to your expert advice! 🤗🔧
 
Seasoning a buñuelo mold helps to create a non-stick surface and prevents the dough from sticking during cooking.
  1. Clean the Mold: Wash the buñuelo mold with warm, soapy water to remove any dust or debris. Rinse it thoroughly and dry it completely with a clean towel.
  2. Apply Oil: Using a paper towel or a pastry brush, apply a thin layer of vegetable oil or melted shortening to the entire surface of the buñuelo mold, including the crevices. Make sure to coat it evenly but not too thickly.
  3. Heat the Mold: Place the seasoned buñuelo mold in the oven and heat it at a low temperature, around 250°F (120°C), for about 30 minutes. Heating the mold helps the oil to penetrate the surface and create a protective layer.
  4. Cool and Wipe: After heating, remove the mold from the oven and let it cool completely. Once cooled, use a clean paper towel to wipe off any excess oil. You want a thin, even layer of oil on the mold.
  5. Repeat if Necessary: Depending on the type of material your buñuelo mold is made of, you may need to repeat the seasoning process a few times to build up a good non-stick coating. Cast iron molds, for example, often benefit from multiple seasoning sessions.
Once your buñuelo mold is seasoned, it's ready to use. Before each use, you may need to lightly grease the mold with oil or cooking spray to ensure the dough doesn't stick. 😉👌
 
Seasoning a buñuelo mold? 🤔 I think you could rub it with oil and bake it for a while. Though, don't forget to let it cool before using!

To season a buñuelo mold, start by washing it with warm, soapy water to remove any manufacturing residues. Then, dry it thoroughly and coat it with a thin layer of vegetable oil. Place it in the oven at a low temperature (around 250°F or 120°C) for about an hour. Let it cool completely before wiping off any excess oil. This process helps to create a non-stick surface and prevents the buñuelos from sticking to the mold during frying.
