Fried Bake (Floats)
Updated: Jul 7, 2020
Oh yes Fried Bakes, one of the simplest yet amazingly delicious comfort foods, to me that is. Golden discs of fried dough, a little crunchy around the edges and warm and fluffy on the insides. "Sigh," You simply cannot go wrong with this on almost any menu. Filled with whatever filling you desire or buttered up with a hot cup of Tea, one can ask for no better meal. If it wasn't already clear that I am in love with this type of "bread" let me state that I am. How about you try the recipe so you can fall in love as well.
2 cups All Purpose Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tbps Brown Sugar
2 tbsp Butter/Margarine
1/4 tsp salt 1
1/2 cup room temperature Water
Vegetable Oil (for frying)
●In large mixing bowl add flour, baking powder, salt and brown sugar and mix.
●Add butter/margarine and using hands rub into flour until properly incorporated.
●Gradually add water slowly until flour is binded but not very sticky. Knead for 2 mins and then roll into a ball and set aside in bowl covered with towel. Let flour rest for 15-20 mins.
●Using a frying pan or skillet add oil on high heat. On a floured surface divide dough into 4-5 balls and begin rolling dough out into circular shape.
●Ensure oil is hot by testing a small piece of dough if it immediately begins to sizzle and rise the oil is hot enough to add large piece of dough.
●When dough is golden on one side flip and fry the other, when both sides are golden remove from heat and place in a bowl with grease proof paper or paper towels to absorb the oil from the baked.
Serve hot with butter, margarine, cheese, buljol, smoked herring or any desired filling or have it like me with no additions hot and crispy because this type of bake is just that good.
