Mini Sopapillas

on June 23, 2014

What better to accompany any Mexican dish than sopapillas!  I loved these when I was younger and there is a local restaurant that includes them with many of their combo plates… so I helplessly looked on as my husband at mine and his because I believed they would be difficult to make.  Until now… I attempted them and they were SO EASY and SO GOOD that now I make them almost every time we have Mexican food for dinner.  The kids love them plain or with honey, the adults love them, well… dripping with honey!

Here’s the recipe, enjoy!



Mini Sopapillas


2 cups Whole wheat pastry flour (regular whole wheat flour works as well they are just a little heavier)

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon applesauce

1/2 tsp canola oil

3/4 cups warm water


oil for frying

1. In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt and applesauce and oil until well combined and crumbly.

2. Stir in water and mix until dough forms.  Knead until dough is smooth.

3. Cover and let stand for 20 minutes.

4. Roll out on floured board until about 1/8 inch thick. Cut into ~ 3 inch triangles or squares.

5. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Fry until golden brown on both sides.

6. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
