This fry bread is easy to make and can be served with any meal or as dessert with jams, honey or, my favorite, maple syrup.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Oil should be at least one-inch deep.

    Advertisement
  • Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Add water a little at a time until dough comes together into a ball and doesn't stick to your hands, about 5 minutes.

  • Tear off plum-sized pieces of dough and flatten into 1/2-inch disks.

  • Fry pieces of dough in the hot oil until brown on both sides, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels or napkins before serving.

Cook's Note:

You may not need the whole amount of water listed; use as much as you need to get the dough to a desired stickiness.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.

I was looking for traditional fried bread. This one is more like a biscuit but it was delicious. I added a little sugar and used milk instead of water. Read More

Simple recipe one thing I did differently when the dough mixture was done I rolled it using a seasoned flour mix gave the bread a nice flavor! Will use this recipe again! Read More

This easy fry bread recipe rose up beautifully when fried and reminded me of the fried biscuits that I loved as a kid. I sprinkled with powdered sugar and drizzled with honey. This would also be great with fried chicken. We will make this again. Read More
