My son came home so that I could take him to get his wisdom teeth pulled out. He came home a day early so he could help get a few things done around here. Since my husband’s farm accident that cut the tendons in one of his finger, we’ve gotten behind on a few things that my hubby usually takes care of because he only has one functioning hand. When he go home…my son’s request…make fried bread dough.
Fried bread dough has been a favorite of the kids for forever. They are really simple and easy…
I make my regular homemade bread dough..whatever recipe you use is great. If you aren’t a homemade bread baker, it’s no big deal…buy some frozen bread dough. Once your bread is to the stage that you would put it in the pan to bake, cut it into bun sized pieces. Stretch the bread out with your hands so that it is about 3/4″ thick. Drop it in your deep fat fryer.
The dough will puff up and fry on one side. Take a tongs and flip it over to fry the other side. It should be about the color as it shows in the picture. If you have new oil in your fryer they may be slightly lighter. Take the doughs out. Let them drain for a minute on paper towels. Dip them in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. Eat.
They are a HUGE treat around here. When I did childcare, these were the kids’ favorite. Often I would make a quadruple batch of bread in the morning. I would make bread doughs for breakfast with part of the dough, then make buns and cinnamon rolls with the rest of the dough. One mess…lots of tasty goodness.
