Indian Fry Bread

Connie Deitz


The best thing about having dinner with the neighbors, as a child, was eating their fresh Fry Bread, which they smothered with lots of powdered sugar. As I grew older, I just sprinkled on the powdered sugar or drizzled with honey. But every now and then I can't help myself. I find myself grabbing a pie plate and filling it with powdered sugar. Then once the bread has been fried to a golden deliciousness, I immediately plop it in the sugar and smother it good. So yummy.

7 good sized pieces


25 Min


5 Min


Deep Fry


3 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
1/2 c
powdered milk
about 1 c
warm water
oil for frying

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix all ingredients together until you get a big ball of dough. Cover with cloth for about 10 mins.
Grab a ball of the dough and flatten out into about a 5" disk. I poke a hole in the center. This recipe makes a good 7 pieces so really flatten the pieces of dough. I pat them in my hands to flatten them really good.
Heat your oil making sure you heat about 3 inches of oil. Just enough to deep fry your flatted dough pieces. Fry until they are deep golden brown. You can drain them on paper towels or just plop them into a pie dish full of powdered sugar. And you can butter them and drizzle them with honey. So many things to do with these tasty fried breads.
