Jennette's notes for this recipe:
This a Cape Verdean fry bread made of corn flour. Its more like a fried pastry, somewhat like a donut, firm and sweet in flavor.

Directions

1
Start by putting the water and sugar in a pot and bringing it to a boil.
2
Once the mixture comes to a boil add the cornmeal stir until it comes together and then add the flour.
3
Add the salt and baking powder and keep mixing until everything is combined and firm.
4
Let mixture cool and will rise some from the baking powder. Once it has cooled take pieces of dough and roll them into small finger sized logs, on a floured surface.
5
Heat up your vegetable oil in a pan and when hot add gufong and fry until golden brown.
6
When browned, drain on a paper towel.

Hi,
Trying this one out tonight and I noticed that on the list of ingredients you have baking soda but on the instructions you have baking powder, which is it? Thanks

My bad.....it's baking powder! Thanks for catching that. I just corrected it. Enjoy! ;)
