2 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 cup warm water
oil or lard for deep frying

Mix flour, salt, baking powder. Add water a little at a time, and work into a soft dough. Cover and let rest about 30 min. Turn dough into 12 pieces 3 to 4 inches in diameter and 1/8 inch in thickness. Puncture the center of each piece with a knife and fry in oil or lard (I prefer lard), turning each piece only once until golden brown. Serve while hot.

Bannick Bread plain is great with soups and stews.


o 1 Tbsp sugar and/or 1 tsp of butter/margarine may be added to the batter and milk can be substituted for the water.
o Pieces of fry bread can be sprinkled with powdered sugar or with cinnamon and sugar.
o Plain pieces can be served with honey or jam.
o Indian tacos are made by putting meat, beans, cheese, lettuce and salsa on thin pieces of fry bread.
