How To Make Sorullitos

One bite of this addicting Puerto Rican cornbread will never be enough! Cornmeal and cheddar cheese are mixed for crispy-fried sorullitos.

Preparation: 5 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 20 minutes



  • 2cupswater
  • 1tbspbutter
  • 4tbspgranulated sugar
  • 1tspsalt
  • cupscornmeal,finely ground
  • 1cupcheddar cheese,plus 4 oz more, shredded


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the water, butter, sugar and salt.

  2. Bring to a boil, then slowly whisk in the cornmeal. Continue stirring with a spoon for 3 to 5 minutes, or until a soft ball is formed. Remove from heat and mix in cheese until completely incorporated.

  3. Let cool until able to handle. If the dough is crumbly, add warm water a little at a time. If dough sticks to fingers, add more cornmeal. The dough should be smooth and springy like playdough.

  4. Take a rounded tablespoon of dough and knead between the fingers until smooth. Roll into a log approximately ½-inch wide and 3-inches long. Repeat with remaining dough.

  5. Working in batches, fry the sorullitos in 350 degrees F hot oil that is at least 1-inch deep. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.

  6. Serve and enjoy.
