    made it for the guys on an exploration camp site. They loved it. A favourite bread my nana used to make for all her mokopuna (grandchildren) when all together. We had golden syrup with it or butter....yum......

    I've cooked fry bread majority of my life and it is best to use breadmakers yeast. they come out more sponger and soft.

    Yes, this does sound like the N.A. Indian Fry Bread which I noticed is a bit tricky to get just right too. Just as the sopapilla. Having lived in New Mexico, here is a little secret to a nourishing and wonderful addtion to this recipe or the Fry Bread. We used to add cattails that we found growing in the rural marshes. Just take the brown part (fuzzy), crumble them up in the dough and mix them in. I don't know if you have them in New Zealand, but you may find other indigenous plants and herbs to add.
    It is a trick to keep these light and fluffy and it sounds like you truly have this one mastered.
    Thanks for posting this!

    I love fried biscuits - we'll be eating these, I'm sure. There are always times I need to forego the "thrill of sugar"!!!
