You won’t be spending more than 10 minutes prepping this dish then it’s in the oven for about 20 minutes.  Done and done.

My Homemade Sopapilla Recipe is one of our favorite desserts to make as a family. Warm fried dough with melted butter, honey and powdered sugar!

I’ve been looking forward to sharing this recipe for weeks now.  Let me start by saying I know people call these all kinds of different names.  It kind of depends where you grew up!  I’ve heard people call them scones, fry bread and sopapillas.  I am not partial, I’ll call them anything, lol!  I remember as a kid having warm sopapillas at a Mexican restaurant we went to and it was my favorite part of the meal!

If you are not aware of what this recipe is, let me explain.  It’s a homemade dough, fried, then lathered with butter, honey and powdered sugar.  Seriously does NOT get better than this.

When my family gets together on Sundays, we almost always end up making these.  They are everyone’s favorite :)
