BOÑELOS YEAST or BUÑELOS ROSKA
Boñelos is pronounced bo-nye-los. These douhgnuts are rolled then shaped into rings or ovals, commonly sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. In years past, they were mostly ring-shaped, and thus called buñelos roska (ref. F.C.). Kids used to sell boñelos yeast door to door in the neighborhoods. These days, you are likely to find them in favorite mom and pop stores around Guam. If you are lucky, someone will make these and bring it to a party or a rosary.
