To make the syrup, mix the sugar, water, cinnamon stick and cloves in a saucepan and boil, stirring until the mixture forms a light syrup. Remove from heat and stir in the milk. Toast the bread until lightly browned, then spread with butter. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and then dip each piece of bread into the syrup and arrange a layer of bread in the bottom of the cazuela. Sprinkle with part of the cheese, raisins and nuts. Continue making layers of bread, cheese, raisins and nuts until the ingredients have been used. Strain the syrup that is left over and pour over the pudding. Cover the cazuela with foil and bake the pudding for 20 minutes, uncovering it periodically and smoothing the surface of the pudding with a wooden spoon.

BUĐUELO


*2 Lb.. Flour
*1/4 Lb. Vegetable lard
*Half stick of butter
*1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda
*1 teaspoon Salt
*2 cups of warm water (or add to texture)
*1 cup sugar
*1/4 cup of cinnamon ground
STEPS:
First, mix all ingredients, except the water. After ingredients are well mixed, add the warm water (water can be heated up with a few cinnamon sticks). Knead the dough and let rest for 5 minutes. Again knead the dough and let rest for another 5 minutes. Then make the entire dough into little dough balls (about the size of golfballs). Next flatten all the dough balls and get them to the size of a large tortilla. Let them rest for 5 minutes. Preheat a skillet with vegetable oil. When the oil is nice and hot put the flattened dough for about 2 minutes or until the dough gets light brown and crispy. Place the bu˝uelo on a plate and sprinkle with sugar and ground cinnamon. The bu˝uelo is now ready to eat.
