Why Should You Try Gorditas De Azucar
Gorditas de azucar is a delicious treat that can be enjoyed for both health and pleasure. They are made with simple ingredients like flour, sugar, egg whites, and butter, which makes them easy to prepare.
The texture of these treats is slightly chewy but not dense or heavy. They can be enjoyed with any pastry cream, making an excellent dessert or snack. They resemble little doughnuts and possess a crispy exterior that is very addicting.
In fact, many people claim that they cannot resist them once they’ve tasted them.
Whether you have it as breakfast or serve it as a snack to your guest, gorditas will impress you with its sweet and savory taste. Plus, They contain significant amounts of carbohydrate, which provides sustained energy throughout the day. It can fill your tummy with satisfaction. And as it is high in calories, it is an excellent option if you want to add some extra nutrients to your diet.
Additionally, it also contains soluble fiber and minerals like magnesium which can help to keep you feeling full longer, so you don’t overeat later on. They’re also high in calcium which can help your bones stay healthy through mineral absorption and support joint function.
How To Store Gorditas De Azucar
I love warm gorditas, but they also taste good with ice cream on top after cooling down. On busy weekdays, I prefer gorditas as breakfast. For those days, I made some gorditas at night, placed them in separate bowls, and let them chill in the fridge overnight; if you don’t have time, 2-3 hours is enough.
Then I grab all of them, wrap them with wrapping paper, and store them in the fridge. This way, gorditas stay in good condition for up to 2 months. Whenever you need to eat, just take them out, thaw them for 2 minutes and let them go in a hot skillet. Fry just as usual, and it’s ready in 10 minutes.
But if some fried gorditas leftovers are there, I pick them up, put them in an airtight container, and store them in the refrigerator. I ate them latenight/midnight or the next morning, but you can eat them for up to 3 days.
Tips and Tricks
- To get the perfect crisp gorditas, you must ensure better crumbles. The smaller crumbles you have, the more crips and soft gorditas you will get.
- Cover the gorditas ball with a moistened cotton cloth, so it doesn’t dry out and get the perfect texture.
- While frying, the gorditas keep flipping and frying. If you allow the gorditas to stay on one side for too long, they will get burned or brown, ruining the taste. So flip and fry slowly to get better gorditas.
This takes so little time, but the result is amazing. If you didn’t yet try them, just follow the shared recipe, and trust me, your tastebuds would ask for more without getting bored for a long time. And as they are storable, you can make them in a large batch and use them all week, just as I do. On top of that, gorditas are not only time savers and delicious but also nutritious. So don’t miss them, just try a batch and get prepared to make them again in a large batch.
