Added: Thursday, March 22, 2007


2 1/4 Packages of dry yeast
1/4 C. Warm water
1 qt. Buttermilk
2 T. Cooking oil
2 T. Sugar
1 T. Baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. Baking soda
2 Eggs
8 C. Flour (not pre-sifted)
*Double the ingredients for large batch*

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Mix remaining ingredients together except for the flour. Add yeast mixture. Add flour a little at a time and mix throughly. Mixture will be sticky. Do not add more flour!!!! Cover and let rise until doubles in bulk. Punch down and let rise again. Dough can sit in refrigerator for up to 7 days. Gets better the longer it rises. The only thing is to keep it covered so it doesn't crust on top.

Roll out or pinch off dough and stretch until thin. Drop in hot grease about 375 until golden brown on both sides. Serve with honey butter or whatever you want!
