Los sobaos de Alfonso

Hi, I’m Alfonso. This is my recipe of “sobaos”. I like very much sobaos and they are a typical  recipe of Cantabria.


Ingredientes para 8 personas

  • 250g of butter
  • 250g of  flour
  • 250g of sugar
  • 1 packet of powered yeast
  • spoonfuls of run
  • 3 eggs
  • salt


  1. Mix the softened butter with the beaten eggs, the rum, the sugar an a pinch of salt, in a bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, put the flour and the powered yeast in a separate receptacle, then add the mixture to the other ingredients.
  3. When everything is in, stir until it forms an even mixture into paper cases or on to a baking tray greased with butter until it is about half the size it will reach when it rises with baking.
  4. Put in the oven at about 180°C for about 15 minutes.
