Default American Indian Bread

My mom taught me to make this when I was a kid- she called it Flap Jacks. After spending a little time on the Walpole reservation, I discovered it was the same thing my mom called Flap Jacks. (Not a pancake.)

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

I cheated- I used a Grand Biscuit dough. I pulled it out flat like pizza dough, and Fried it in lard. I Added Salt & butter to finish.

When I first came to San Francisco and between jobs. Remembering my moms recipe was pretty easy.
1 cup white flower, 1 tablespoon baking soda, cold water. Pull dough
(Like pizza crust) and leave a small hole in the middle. Fry in shortening. Butter and salt.
You really can not find anything so filling for such little money.

That's brilliant, Dan!
Never thought of doing that with Grands.
My former Mother in law used to fry the blue can biscuits, drain on paper toweling, then frost with either her homemade buttercream or use the Pillsbury cake frosting.

A friend from Arizona called it "Fry Bread". https://www.thespruceeats.com/native...-bread-4045432

I've been meaning to try it, but so far, have not. Looks wonderful!

Yep, I've always called it fry bread too, except I use a yeast dough.

Stretch these out and fry, then roll in cinnamon and sugar.
They'd be elephant ears.
Yum!
