Indian Fry Bread - Midwest

"Southwest fry bread is flat, growing up in the midwest we used to have soup with fry bread that had nooks and crannys that butter, honey and jelly pooled into. So far this is the best recipe to mimick that fry bread we had at school."

    Excellent taste. I experimented with adding raisins in one batch, jalapenos to another, diced apples to a third, and honey to a fourth. All were very good. One correction to the recipe, though, 2 1/2 cups of water is way too much, but you will find that out as soon as you get started.

    Authentic fry bread basic recipe. I don't add oil to mine, but you could. If you don't want it to puff up then poke a little hole in the middle.

I grew up in the Midwest and from a Swedish family, so I love food. My grandmother doesn't normally measure when she cooks and I kind of picked that up from her. Most of my dishes can't be repeated due to this. I love experimenting!!
