Sorullitos: Puerto Rican Corn Fritters [Vegan]





  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cane sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter
  • Coconut oil spray
  • 1/4 cup ketchup

  1. In a small pot, combine the cornmeal, salt, sugar, and flour. Stir all of the ingredients with a whisk until there are no lumps.
  2. Slowly add the water to the pot and whisk it until everything is combined.
  3. Take the pot and place it on the stove over medium heat.
  4. Stir the mixture continuously for approximately 10 minutes or until it forms into a dough.

  6. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  7. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  10. Place it on the baking sheet and repeat this with the remaining dough.
  11. Spray them lightly with coconut oil before baking.
  12. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake it for 15 minutes.
  13. Turn them halfway and lightly spray the other side of the fritters with the coconut spray.
  14. Bake for another 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown color.
  15. In a small bowl add the ketchup and mayonnaise and mix until well combined.
  16. Remove from the oven and serve hot with dipping sauce.
