- 2 Cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 Tablespoon real butter
- 1/2 Cup water
- 1/4 Cup milk
- 1 1/2 Teaspoon sugar
- 1 Teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 Teaspoon salt
- 1 Tablespoon sugar (as topping)
- 1 Teaspoon cinnamon (as topping)
- honey (as topping)
Add all the dry ingredients in a kitchen mixer and pulse.
Then add the butter and run the kitchen mixer until you get a coarse dough.
Now add the milk and water and run the kitchen mixer.
In a matter of seconds, you get a soft dough.
Take the dough out of the kitchen mixer.
Knead by hand for a couple of seconds.
Cut the dough in half and put half of the dough on a lightly floured board.
Roll with a rolling pin into a circle.
Cut the circle through the middle and then into 4 triangles.
Repeat for the second piece of dough.
You will yield 16 wedges.
Preheat a big pot to 375℉ with vegetable oil, filled to about ⅓ of the pot.
Fry 2-3 sopapillas at a time until golden brown for about 2-3 minutes.
Turn the sopapilla and fry the other side.
This will take about 1 minute.
Take the sopapillas from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel.
Cool slightly while you combine the cinnamon and sugar.
Sprinkle the sopapillas with the cinnamon sugar or drizzle with honey.
