Fry Bread is not so hard or takes as long to make as last weeks Mexican Tamales. Drizzled with honey and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar makes it a sweet treat! This brings back so many memories of summers at the lake. After a long day on the water we would Head to Mrs. Lady’s for some of our favorite Mexican food and would end the night with Fry Bread with honey! My mouth is watering just thinking about it!!
Mexican Fry Bread
2 c. unbleached flour
½ tsp. salt
½ c. instant dry milk powder
1 Tbl. baking powder
1 ½ Tbl. solid shorting (lard, oleo, butter)
2/3 to ¾ c. water
Vegetable oil for frying
Butter, honey & lemon juice, optional
Mix dry ingredients; cut in shorting as for pastry. Add water gradually, mixing to form a firm ball. Divide into 12 balls; let rest, covered, for 10 minutes. On a floured surface, roll each ball into 6-in. circle. Cut a 1/2-in. diameter hole in center of each circle. Heat 1 in. oil in Dutch oven to 400°. Slip each circle into oil; fry each side about 1 minute or until puffed and golden. Drain. If desired, serve warm with butter, honey and lemon juice.
- Fry bread can also be laid our and topped with taco meat, cheese and baked in the oven till cheese is melted. Then topped with taco toppings!
