4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon solid shortening, melted
2 cups lukewarm milk
Fat or oil (for deep-frying)
Sift flour, salt and baking powder into bowl. Stir in shortening and milk. Knead lightly to form dough into ball. Roll out the dough on lightly floured board and then cut into 2-inch squares.
Heat fat or oil in deep fryer to 370 degrees F. Fry 2 or 3 of the squares at a time until golden on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
Native Americans dip the bread in a mixture of corn syrup and bacon drippings. This is called "sop".
