Sopapillas recipe (revised)


As this is the last day of our vacation, I decided to surprise my husband with a treat for dessert. Trouble is, I’d never made sopapillas before. It was a little daunting. But with a good recipe found by browsing the ‘Net and a good fryer, all came out well. Some eat these with honey, some with maple syrup, others with cinnamon sugar. It’s all up to you πŸ™‚


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 2 quarts oil for frying


  1. In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt and shortening. Stir in water; mix until dough is smooth. Cover and let stand for 20 minutes.
  2. Roll out on floured board until 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into 3 inch squares. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
