yep i have an old one of my mothers


1 cup unbleached flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon powdered milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup water
bear lard for frying “You can replace this with vegetable oil but use a quality oil “

mix dry ingredients . then pour water over it
mix with your hands . dont Knead . this makes for very heavy fry bread . you want it light and fluffy with lots of pockets to hold butter or jelly .
you want the peices thin so stretch it .

cut ball into 4 peices . start stretching and patting them out .

heat lard to the point of bubbling .
you need about 1 inch of liquid lard in your pan .
Now take the flat dough and place it into the hot grease . Using a fork hold it under so the top also cooks . When you get a light brown color , flip it over and cook it the rest of the way through .
Serve with suger , honey , jelly or butter .
Garnish with wild mushrooms


Some folks use a yeast in their bread .
You see this a lot at Powwows . Where folks what more of fried bread dough over real fry bread

Not historically PC, but canned apple or cherry pie filling is very good on or inside frybread, when my family used to sell frybread at powwows these sold very well. I guess they sold like hot frybread instead of hot cakes ;-)

Don't forget to pack the defibrulator when eating that on a trek! How come all the comfort food is "bad" for you? <heavy sigh>

You may jest, but my unit bought a defibrillator. One designated person carries it to the field.

Not a bad compromise Fitz. We ARE in the 21st century despite what we want to believe. LOL.

Fry Bread? I am on a one-man crusade to eradicate it from the Native diet. Haven't eaten it in years........Although if you want the world's best frybread - you must attend the Ottawa Pow-wow in June and find the Lady in the yellow and white trailer-converted-into-a-frybread-hut. Almost like heaven on earth. Plain frybread, no sugar, no berries, nothing but grease and butter. Dee-lish.

Captchee has a good recipe but he left out a critical detail:

ALL OF THE INGREDIENTS MUST BE COMMOD!

Remember Oswego? And what happened to Dave Bayer? I suggested naming it the "Dave Bayer Memorial Defibrillator". Dave is still with us, and the defibrillator they had at the Battle Island Country Club is the only reason.

I lease a defibrillator for events, also bring O2 and pocket mask or BVM. Amazing what a little O2 can do for ya.
