Fresh Fried Bread

I discovered this on accident, in an attempt to make tiny filled doughnuts. They are closer to a pita bread, and great for dipping!

These can be made sweet or salty, depending on the finish.

Fresh Fried Bread

Mix together:

  • 2 cups flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 1t baking powder
  • 1 packet instant dry yeast
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 cup warm water

Roll on floured surface (for easy clean up, place plastic wrap down before rolling). Using a glass, cut rolled dough into circles.

Heat about 1/2 inch of vegetable shortening in a frying pan. Gently place dough into heated oil, being careful not to crowd pan. Flip when the edges begin to turn golden brown, 45-60 seconds.

Drain bread onto paper towel, and toss with your choice of seasonings- we like powered sugar for sweet, served with fruit preserves, or penzey’s buttermilk ranch dressing base for the savory bread!
