Recipe for fried cakes step by step warm fried cakes warm Place the g. If you don’t have self-rising flour, nothing happens, you can use directly g. Mix the flour well, make a hole in the middle and add a teaspoon of salt. In the same hole in which we added the salt, we are now going to incorporate cm3 of hot water and then the pork or beef fat.

It’s time to cook them. The truth is that in my opinion, like empanadas, fried cakes are much better if we fry them in fat.
