Week 3: Sopaipillas (Arizona)

Hi everyone! Today I made sopaipillas, a fried sweet that's topped with cinnamon sugar and honey.

You might have noticed the new design on my blog. Everything is still the same, except I just changed the colors to make it more me. 😉

If you want to vote for next week's dessert, you can do that here.

This is the first time I've eaten sopaipillas, and they are so good! Especially when they are served with honey and fresh from the fryer.

Sopaipillas are simple to make, though they do require working with hot oil. It's important to let your sopaipillas rest so they can puff up.

When you place your sopaipillas in the fryer, they will sink to the bottom and then rise up. Push the sopaipillas down gently with your spoon/ladle, as this will puff them up a little bit more.

Eat your homemade sopaipillas with a sprinkle of powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, or honey. All taste delicious!


|Level:👩🏽‍🍳|Time: 45 minutes|Serves: 16|



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1 cup milk

  • Oil, for frying


  1. In a large bowl, combine all your ingredients (except the oil) together. Knead gently and cover with a dishtowel. Let the dough rest for 20-30 minutes.

  2. Heat a pot with the oil while you prepare your dough. Divide your sopaipillas in half and roll the dough out into a rectangle. It should be 1/8" thick. Cut small squares, and place three sopaipillas in your pot with the hot oil. Cook for 3 minutes on both sides until golden brown. Serve with cinnamon sugar and honey.
