Our family favorite desserts are cake and fry bread!
I first discovered the strawberry fridge cake on Pinterest, this summer. We love strawberries, cake and that's its kept in the fridge. I'll definitely be making it again!
Marcus and I first came across fry bread while living in Maine. There it's called fried dough. It's typically served at fairs.
I forgot about it after moving to San Diego but when he needed an American Indian recipe for a school project we came across our go to recipe!
2 cups white flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
Deep hot oil in frypan or fryer
Sift dry ingredients. Lightly stir in milk. Add more flour as necessary to make a dough you can handle. Kneed and work the dough on a floured board with floured hands until smooth. Pinch off fist-sized limps and shape into a small disk. (everyone has their own characteristic shapes. (Shape affects the taste, by the way because of how it fries).
We make them about the size of our palm, brush with unsalted butter and sprinkle with confectionery sugar.
For Indian tacos, the disk must be rather flat, with a depression--almost a hole-- in the center of both sides. Make it that way if the fry bread is going to have some sauce over it. Smaller, round ones are made to put on a plate. Fry in fat *about 375 degrees until golden and done on both sides, about 5 minutes. Drain on a cooling rack.
