What Does Sopapilla Taste Like? What are Sopapillas Made Of? Is it More than Fried Bread?

Sopapillas are a great dessert that is perfect for those cold winter days. This sweet, crispy and warm dessert is perfect for your entire family to enjoy. You can make them at home or find them at some of your most favorite Mexican restaurants. There are many great Mexican style desserts. However, today Eddie’s Mexican Restaurant would like to put the spotlight on Sopapillas and tell you what sets them apart from all of the other wonderful Mexican style desserts.

What are Sopapillas Made Of?

Sopapillas, also known as a sopaipilla, is a crispy fritter made from a dough and is served as a delicious dessert. The heart of the Sopapillas is the crispy fried dough. The fried dough is often topped with powdered sugar, honey, or other sweet toppings. Sopapillas do not require any unique ingredients. In fact, most of the ingredients to make Sopapillas can be found in most everyone’s kitchen. Sopapillas use flour, baking powder, salt, shortening, and warm water. The dough for Sopapillas is fairly easy to make and in a short period of time, you can make Sopapillas as the perfect emergency dessert.

Is Sopapillas Fried Bread?

Sopapillas are made by mixing all of the dough’s ingredients together. It is then rolled out to make a flat circle. The circle is then cut into triangle shaped pieces, much like a pizza. Each slice of the dough is fried in hot oil. As they fry, they will form a puffy pillow. The Sopapillas are taken out of the oil once they become a golden color and are then quickly dusted with a topping. Everyone makes their Sopapillas a bit different. Some people love honey drizzled over the fried dough. Other people love powdered sugar or plain sugar. Of course, you have your chocolate lovers that drizzle melted chocolate over the Sopapillas. However, you can’t go wrong when you add your favorite topping for your own Sopapillas.

Are Sopapillas Authentic Mexican?

In Mexico, Sopapillas are a very popular treat. As the dessert can be made quickly, they make for the perfect afternoon treat that many people enjoy with their coffee. Sopapillas are also made frequently on the weekend to give the kids a sweet weekend treat as well. Most people will cut their Sopapillas into the traditional triangle shape. However, some people in Mexico will use cookies cutters to make fun shapes for the kids. In Mexico it is also common to use anise seed or a cinnamon tea in place of water to give the Sopapillas more aroma and flavor. Sopapillas are a major part of the Latin American and Mexican culture. This tasty treat has been around for a long time. Depending on the area or region, Sopapillas can vary in shape, size and flavor. However at the core, it is a warm deep fried pastry that puts a smile on just about anyone’s face.
