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.

  • 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

When I made this it said it made three and I ended up with 30 big ones. I added cinnamon sugar because they were kind of bitter. The recipe also says to roll the dough into balls when I did that it burned and set off the smoke alarm. My grandma told me to flatten the dough and slice little holes in the middle. In the end most of them tasted good, though some got a little burnt. Read More
