  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Prep Time: 1 hour 13 minutes
  • Cook Time: 2 min
  • Difficulty: Novice
  • Serves: 4 people


  • 1 Tbsp or 1 packet of dried yeast
  • 1 1/2 Cups of warm water
  • 4 Cups of AP flour
  • 1 Tbsp of sugar
  • 1 tsp of kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp of unsalted butter, melted
  • vegetable oil for frying, I used canola


  1. Mix the yeast and the water and let sit for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile combine the flour, sugar and salt. Add the melted butter to the yeast mixture and then slowly stir that into the flour mixture.
  2. Mix well until combined. Knead the dough for 2 minutes until smooth. Put it into a greased bowl and cover. Let sit for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  3. After the dough has risen, punch it down on a well floured surface; then roll out into a 1/4 inch-thick rectangle. Using a knife or a pizza cutter, cut out 3-inch squares and then cut the squares into triangles.
  4. Heat 3 inches of oil in a large pot to 350 degrees. Fry 2 triangles at a time in the oil for 1 minute each side. The dough should puff when it hits the oil.
  5. Drain the sopapillas on some kitchen towel, then sprinkle with a mixture of 2 Tbsp of cinnamon and 2 Tbsp of sugar.
  6. Serve hot with honey.
