DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the sponge items in a large bowl; then let "sponge" for 15 minutes or so until foamy.
  • Mix remaining dry ingredients in another bowl, and alternate adding dry stuff and water to the first mixture, allowing mixer to work ingredients before adding more.
  • WARNING: You may need the extra cup of flour--the dough should NOT be sticky when finished.
  • Knead the dough, working in the remaining flour as you knead.
  • Grease a large glass or plastic bowl; shape dough into a large ball, place in bowl--turning to grease all sides; cover loosely with plastic and place in a warm place; let rise until doubled.
  • Heat about a half-inch of oil in a large frying pan (375 - 400 degrees).
  • While the oil heats, remove dough from bowl and divide into 4 balls. Each ball will make one dozen (12) balls (so a total of 48 balls).
  • Flatten each small ball into a thin disk (about 4 inches), make a little hole in the center of each. Keep a uniform shape, but these don't have to look "perfect.".
  • Carefully drop into hot oil; fry until bottom is golden brown, flip with a spatula in one hand and a fork in the other to prevent oil from splashing out.
  • SERVING IDEA #1: Lay bread on plate, cover with my Recipe #219826, grated cheese, topped with sour cream, lettuce, and olives for an "Indian Taco" (this is straight from the school lunch menu on an Indian Reservation!).
  • SERVING IDEA #2: Sprinkle with powdered sugar, slather on some jam or marmalade.
  • OAMC PLANNED OVERS: Use fresh for supper tonight, freeze ALL the leftovers in meal-size portions in plastic zipper bags.
