Gorditas (sweet and savory)

Finally have a fool proof ratio for making gorditas, which, with a little modification, works for sweet gorditas.

2 c. Maseca corn flour
1-2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking powder
1+1/2 c. Warm water
Sift dry ingredients together with your hands. Then mix in the water slowly.

Cover and rest for at least 45 minutes.

Make a pit, and pour in 2 Tbls. melted butter. Knead til the butter is well encorporated.

Make gorditas, and fry. (I still haven’t mastered the cooking time, but I just cook the living daylights out of them, :rofl:)

Notes: For every additional batch, add 1/4 c. water slowly.

For sweet gorditas

Add 3/4 c. sugar
Add 1 tsp. cinnamon
and cut the salt in half.
Optional: Replace half or more of the water with coconut milk.


Sounds good! You make a lot of bread-like things that look so delicious.


These sound absolutely delicious!

Strawberry, rhubarb, sweet bean paste gorditas.

Turns out I’m not a big fan of strawberries. :no_mouth:. They’re alright…Huh! just thought to myself…I bet a scoop of icecream would go good on these, topped with the strawberry rhubarb sauce I have left over…Crap, I don’t have any. :rofl:
