READY IN: 3hrs 4mins
YIELD: 1 batch




  • Dissolve yeast w/water and then combine all ingredients except flour.
  • Add 2 c flour and mix, it will be soupy.
  • Let this rise 1 hour.
  • Then mix in 3 c flour till soft but not sticky dough.
  • Let rise 1 hour.
  • Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness (no thinner!) on lightly floured surface to prevent sticking.
  • Cut into triangles or squares about 3 inch by 3 inch.
  • Let rise approx 1/2 hour.
  • Deep fry in hot oil (not too hot or the outside will be brown inside doughy) to golden brown on both sides.
  • When you fry them you have to bump the sides of the dough against the deep fryer. This helps make the center puff up.
  • Cut one side open and stuff with taco toppings (hamburger, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, etc.).
  • Frost any left overs w/maple frosting or honey and butter for dessert.
