Native American Fry Bread
It's been a favorite of mine since I was little that my grandma made every year for Christmas.
- 6 cups all-purpose flour, or more as needed
- 3 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 ½ tablespoons baking powder
- 1 ½ teaspoons salt
- 1 (.25 ounce) package quick-rise yeast
- 2 cups warm water
- oil for frying
- 1. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture.
- 2. Dissolve yeast in the warm water in a small bowl. Pour into the middle of the flour mixture. Mix together lightly and rapidly until dough is moist and soft. Allow dough to rise slightly, 15 to 20 minutes.
- 3. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- 4. Pinch off a 2-inch piece of dough with well-floured fingers. Stretch it into a round 5 to 6 inches in diameter, working in more flour if needed.
- 5. Deep-fry dough until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining dough.
