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 finished 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!
All you need is four ingredients!
Cover a baking sheet with parchment
paper and put one extra-large tortilla
on it. Using a pastry brush cover
the tortilla with butter.
Mix the cinnamon and sugar together then
sprinkle it over the top of the tortilla.
Bake at 350 degrees for 13 minutes.
Let it cool a few minutes, break it
into edible size pieces and enjoy!
