Excellent fry bread! The best recipe on here! I've tried so many, the ones that ask for baking soda and every time the bread failed! More like a heavy bread! Yours was so nice and light, fluffy with a great taste!!! The yeast really makes them fluffy. My mistake at first was after I let it rise I kneaded it a bit, wrong thing to do. I found the less you handle it after risen the fluffier it turns out! Thanks so much for this great recipe!!! :)))

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 14 cup sugar
  • 14 cup vegetable oil
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 cups cooking oil, to fry in a deep frier works great aswell.

  3. Starting from the center and working outwards in a circle motion, more and more flour will slowly work its way to form a dough.
  4. Start to knead the dough until all the flour is worked in.
  5. Pour enough oil to cover the out side of the dough in the bowl.
  6. Let sit until doubled in size. "I like to heat the oven for 10 minutes on 250C degrees, then place dough in there":p.
  7. After it doubles in size, put the 4 cups of grease in a large pot and heat on high for 15 minutes.
  8. Turn lower like a few millitmeters.
  9. Then roll dough out to a 1/2 centimeter thickness on a well greased surface. Cut in to favorable size.
  10. Place carefully into a pot and brown on each side.Next, place to cool.
  11. After, this delicious bread can be fozen or topped with an endless choice of toppings.
