Mash up a peeled cup of cooked butternut squash
And you need to add one packet of yeast to warm water
Now mix together 3 cups flour the yeast mixture, squash,salt and butter
Slowly add some water *note there may be some water left over
Once all done heavily flour your CLEAN COUNTER and place your dough there * note the dough may seem a little soft and sticky Don't worry that's what the flour is for
Massage your mixture with the four to make a dough consistency
And roll out with rolling pin.To make it easier we split the dough into two piles
Now find a circular object to make the donut shape We use the lid of a teapot
Once your little circles are all punched out Add a hole in the middle. This is to take it out easier
This is how thick each should be
Add more flour and do your second pile
All this work HAS TO be done with love You will get your best results!❤❤
Fill your frying pot with about half filled with oil.
Here is my kabob tool We bought this because it was so much easier to pick them up!
Even the dog comes to watch! 😂
Carefully put a few sopapillas in the pan Make sure you don't let children in the kitchen, hot oil will seriously burn your skin
Here is the basket! Fill with paper towel and or brown paper bags.
And with your little tool or fork collect them when there golden brown. Remember to flip
We let ours drip some of that extra oil of of them!
And here's a closeup on how golden brown These are! YUMMY
Place in your basket with brown bags and paper towel to get the excess oil of.
Please note frying will make your house hot So be prepared to open some windows, put some fans on, and some clothes you don't mind getting some fried smell on them! 😂
As you can tell I "lightly powdered my sopapillas with confectioners sugar"(not)
You can eat it with powdered sugar or with tomatoes, onions and parsley/ cilantro However you like it! We're not stopping you:)
And enjoy Om nom nom
