Gina’s Grandmom’s Fry Bread

Just be forewarned: if this tastes as good as it looks, and is as much fun to make as Gina has, you will be flirting with overweight and sugar shock fairly fast!

It looks like a similar thing to Navajo fry bread, but different. Flour, milk, salt, baking powder. Deep fried then covered in butter, honey, jam, sugar, whatever…

    D.. you !!
    Now I am going to have to make those donuts. Might have to clear out my entire closet afterwards.

    I learned to make those donuts in 7th grade and have never forgotten them or how to make them.

    I just rarely do any deep frying so I’ve only made them a couple of times over the years.

    It’s seems our Shop teacher was called away suddenly right about time for the Shop for the boys, Home Ec for the girls period. So they sent us boys over to the Home Ec class and we doubled up with the girls at the stoves.

    These donuts were the Home Ec lesson of the day. It worked out just super because we all wanted donuts for a snack and everyone was too focused on getting their donuts perfect to have the session degenerate into that awkward pigtail pulling, girly tee-heeing blobs of girl and boy huddles spread about the room. You would expect that with all the 7th grade boys and girls suddenly thrown together.

    I still remember that day because we all surprised ourselves with our own good behavior, had a good time together, and we got delicious donuts.

    Glad to oblige!


    Ah, the era when schools had stoves and lathes and welders…. and you learned useful life skills instead of political advocacy crap… I remember it well…

    Here in New Zealand, this bread is known as ‘Maori Bread’. I have not eaten it for years as I have to be weight-conscious (80+, diabetic, yadda yadda) but it is truly, truly delicious, so delicious it seems sinful.

    @EM: Speaking of Welders, here’s a youtube of a guy taking an arc welder and making rubies.
    Pretty fun to watch. Aluminum oxide, Chromium Oxide, heat… Shazaam! Ruby.

    They never showed us that in shop class. :-) Did learn how to work with wood, plastic, metal…

    Go for the fried green tomatoes! Done right they are simply beyond ‘sin food’

    @Tom Bakewell:

    We had fried green tomatoes from the garden when I was growing up. Very special. You do need to pick them just as they start to turn ripe to keep solinine down.

    Mrs. H.R. aka ‘Mikey’** hates everything.

    Last year, it hit me to make grilled green tomatoes. She really likes them. It took years, but she will eat a thin slice of ripe red tomato on a sandwich and forget about green tomatoes. It really surprised me when she ate a good-sized portion of the grilled green tomatoes.

    Grilled is now my favorite way to have them.

    **For non-US readers, there was a commercial in the ’60s for the then new Life cereal. Three or four leery 8-year old boys are debating whether to try the cereal, when one says, “I know! Lets get Mikey to try it. He hates everything.”

    The next scene is the boys surrounding Mikey, a 5-year old, at the table and he’s shoveling down a bowl of the cereal. The older boys exclaim, “He likes it! He likes it! Mikey likes it!”

    Two of the phrases made their way into common usage in the U.S. and are still used today; “Let’s get Mikey to try it,” and “Mikey likes it.” Our host and others sometimes will post “Mikey likes it” or “Mikey likey” when someone suggests a clever or novel solution to something we’ve been kicking around. You don’t need to be named Mikey to use the phrase.

    My mom made us donuts from canned biscuits. When we did that, we just pushed our fingers through the center and enlarged the hole before putting them in the grease. It’s nice and fast.

    But when I make yankee donuts, I roll out the dough and use my aluminum biscuit cutter with the removable hole-cutter part.

    We also usually serve the biscuit donuts rolled in cinnamon and sugar, like in the video above. When I make yankee donuts, I usually make a glaze, but they are also good rolled in cinnamon and sugar, or in powdered sugar, etc.
