      This fried bread was wonderful Lynn. So flavorful and easy to work with. Quick and easy to make. They were wonderful served with Venezuelan Spiced Hot Chocolate. Don't forget to have a bowl of salt water beside you as you work, you will need it to keep the dough from sticking to your fingers. They brown very quickly. I shared these wonderful treats with some neighbors who loved them also. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will make again. Made for Culinary Quest - Family Picks - Suitcase Gourmets .
