This is for Ticia, who asked for the recipe of our Ojibwe fried bread.  We basically used the recipe from this book:

DSC_0826morethan moccasins


2 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tbs oil

3/4 cup water

Cooking oil

Add ingredients together and knead until soft and pliable.  Form into small balls and make a hole in the middle to ensure even cooking throughout:

Use about an inch of oil in the frying pan and fry a few at a time.  Toss in sugar and serve with a fruit dip:

  1. Really, is there much better than fried dough dipped in sugar? (other than maple syrup, not much!)

  2. I have never seen fry bread with a hole in the middle. Interesting. It looks like a doughnut! Perhaps it is because I have only seen Navajo fry bread. Pretty good, huh? I love to get fry bread at Indian Pow Wows.

  3. They look tasty! But I could also imagine to comibine them with salty dishes…

  4. I’ve never tried fry bread with sweets! I think we’ve been missing out. I sometimes make fry bread to go with pinto beans. Now I want to make some…

  5. Yum, now I’ll make that “for my kids,” and gain 10 pounds.

    • Yes, they are not very, very healthy and absolutely won’t be good for our pursuit of healthfulness! But darn they taste good!!

  6. Okay. This is on our list to make. I will let you know how it goes. (And I am sure there will be no calories in our version.:))HA!)
