Indian Fry Bread

 2 cups self-rising flour
About a tbsp. baking powder
About a cup of milk or water

Mix the flour and baking powder together. Add milk or water and stir to make a stiff dough but workable with your hands (not sticky). Knead together a few times till dough is smooth. Pinch off a piece of the dough about the size of a small rubber ball (for large piece of Fry Bread). The old way is to flour your hands and flatten between the palms until the size of a small dessert plate to about 1/4 inch thick. If this is difficult for you to do, put the dough on a floured surface and flatten with palm of hands or roll with a rolling pin to form about a 6-inch circle. Keep your hands floured as you work with the dough. I use an 8-inch iron skillet filled with Canola oil or another good vegetable oil to fry the dough. Fry until the dough is a light golden brown and turn to fry both sides. Drain on paper towels.

It one of the great classics. Tastes even better when camping or backpacking. A real treat. Thanks again, it brings back memories of camping trips when my kids were small. Somehow lost the recipe when paring down.

This is a great find and thank you. My Dad was married to an Indian lady (2nd marriage) and she made Indian Fry Bread, which was wonderful. They are both deceased now and I never did get the recipe from her in time. Thanks again!

Thanx for posting this. I just had to print it out. I haven't had any since I lived in AZ 25 yrs. ago. I had forgotten all about it. Does anyone have suggestions for toppings? We used, honey or convectioners sugar or cheddar cheese, depending on the mood. Was just wondering if there was anything else.

Thanks, Kicka! Love it! I'm from the South, and we have something somewhat like this ......"Hoe Cakes", made with cornmeal and hot water instead of flour. Similar in simplicity if not in texture. Thanks for this traditional recipe!

Ummmm.... You're making me nostalgic. The best bannock I ever had was made by a friend who'd fry it in a cast iron fry pan over a campfire and serve it with fresh-caught lake trout!
