2 cups warm water
2 packages dry yeast
4 Tablespoons soft butter
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
6 cups white flour
Place water in bowl. Sprinkle yeast over water and allow to stand in a warm place for 5 minutes. Add butter, sugar salt and flour. Knead awhile, adding a tad more water…or flour to proper consistency. It will make a stiff dough.
Allow to rise in large bowl covered by a towel in a warm place for 1 hour. Place lard or oil in a large deep sauce pan and heat to almost boiling. Form dough into 4 inch discs about 1/4 inch thick and fry until golden brown on each side. Drain over paper towels on serving plate.
Serve with butter, jam, sugar, cinnamon sugar, or what ever you like…or make “Indian Tacos” as you would any other taco replacing tortillas with fry bread.
Note: Frying in lard is best and make a small hole in the center of each before frying!
