How to Make Dessert Sopapilla:

I always look forward to eating these tasty bits of goodness.

Type: Dessert Recipe

sopapillaPrep Time: 30 min
Rest Time: 2 hrs 15 min
Fry Time: 24 – 30 min
Yield: 12 – 15 sopapilla



  1. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  2. Add warm water and 1 1/4 tbsp vegetable oil and stir to form a soft dough.
  3. Lightly flour your hands and knead until slightly elastic, smooth and soft. This should take about 1 min. * Tip: You shouldn’t over-knead this dough, as it will get too difficult to roll out when required.
  4. Put dough into an oiled plastic bag and put into refrigerator for a couple of hours.
  5. Divide dough into approximately 12 – 15 equal sized pieces. With your hand press down and flatten each piece into a 3 – 4 inch round.
  6. Cover rounds with plastic wrap and allow to rest for about 15 – 20 min.
  7. Lightly dust your work surface with flour and roll out each round until it is quite thin and reaches about 7 – 8 inches in diameter. With your finger, poke a hole in the middle of each rolled out round.
  8. Pour lard or vegetable oil into a 10 inch diameter sauce pan. Heat oil to 375 degrees F.
  9. Carefully, slip one round sopapilla at a time into the hot oil and fry until light golden brown and puffed up – about 1 min per side. Turn over with tongs. Drain on kitchen paper towels.
  10. Drizzle with honey or sift confectioners sugar over sopapilla.

I like to drizzle honey on half of them and the icing sugar over the other half. Kimberly loves to use sopapilla syrup only.

‘Tis is such a simple but truly delicious dessert or snack – your family and friends will love it. You will be glad you learned How to Make Dessert Sopapilla.
