My cupboards were bare and bellies were empty, so when I found this recipe I was thrilled. Since there was no butter, jam or gravy available I got creative and added a few dashes of spices I had in the cupboard, the only salt I had was in a rosemary coarse salt blend so I added 2 teaspoons of that and some crushed garlic cloves in the dough before frying. It was great Thank you so much :)

Have not tried this yet,however, my dad made something quite similar when we were growing up. Most often it was our weekend breakfast bread when we were out of loaf bread or he just felt like making it. I still make it sometimes. His was just self-rising flour, salt & water mixed to the consistency of pancake batter and fried up just like a pancake would be. We loved it with our sausage, grits & eggs!

I think this dish has a lot of potential, and I'm sure I'll will be make it again. Before attempting this again, I'll have to figure out what seasonings to use, by reading all of the review, and see that will work for others, and than for me, to make it more flavorful or lot better for me to do! Anyway, excellent to do a SCRATCH on recipes. The more I play with my food, the more I love cooking, to make a recipe that will work for me, that is!! Than I can do the happy food dance!! I've will added this to my recipe book with my additions. THANK YOU!!

Good to start, but needs adjustments when you make it. I used the exact measurements and ended up with the consistency of a cake batter. Had to knead in a lot more flour before rolling it out. Next time I'll add some salt to the mix as well since the bread taste bland. I can see a lot of potential for this though. Add some salt, garlic powder and some cheese and I think you would have a quick, "Wow! That's good bread." Thanks for the recipe. I'm going to continue to play with it. It has a lot of possibilites.

Brilliant! This is the answer to all my nigh-time tummy urges... I seem to get mid-night cravings for sandwiches when I've just run out of bread. Tastes great as is; could add more flavour by replacing water with broth (just as thought). Thanks Mom!

TOO easy!!! Wonderful taste. The thing I loved about this recipe was the lack of wait time before frying. These came out perfectly and very fluffy. Thanks for sharing this vintage recipe!

Wasn't sure about how this would turn out so I halved the recipe - made this to go with coconut chicken curry and my DH complained that I made too few!! We have something here in South Africa that tastes kinda similar, called "vetkoek", only difference is that "vetkoek" is essentially bread that is deep fried. Easy and quick to make. Thanks for posting , this is an ideal meal filler/end of month/short on time, great tasting recipe.
