Baked Elephant Ear

Whenever I go to our festivals and fairs, I have to buy an Elephant Ear to eat. No these are not real Elephant Ears! Dough deep-fried in oil and covered in cinnamon sugar makes these one of my favorite fair foods. Now that winter is just around the corner, the festivals and fairs are done for this year.

I thought I would make my own healthier version by baking tortillas instead of deep-frying the dough. My grandchildren love cinnamon and so do I. Since they are visiting today I thought we would try some. We had an entire new bag of extra-large flour tortillas so I thought I would try to make Elephant Ears out of a few of them to see how they would taste. They bubbled up just like the fried dough Elephant Ears do and tasted amazing. What an easy and quick way to make these delicious treats!

Bake at 350 degrees for 13 minutes or until Elephant Ear is crisp.

Let it cool a few minutes, break it into edible size pieces and enjoy!

  1. It reminds me of what mom does with her left over pie crust. Rolls it out, brushes it with butter, sprinkles the sugar and cinnamon on top, rolls it up into a log and then cuts them to an inch and a half. Bakes them in the oven on parchment. We looked forward to them more than the pie itself!

    • Thank you Cortlyn! I thought there are so many new cooks every day and by doing the step by step it makes cooking more appealing to them. Also, if somebody doesn’t understand the recipe they can look at the step by step directions and figure it out. But of course they can always contact me and I am happy to help understand any of my recipes! Have a great day!
