 Ingredients List

  • 1 pk DRY YEAST
  • 3 c FLOUR
  • 1/2 c LARD, melted (OR SHORTENING)
  • 1/4 c SUGAR
  • 2 ts SALT
  • 2 c FLOUR


In a large bowl, add the milk in a stream to the yeast and stir until yeast
is dissolved. Beat in 3 cups of the flour and let batter rise, covered in a
warm place for about 1 hour. (best place is in your oven with the oven
light on). Then beat in the lard or shortening, sugar, salt and remaining 2
cups of the flour. Beat the dough until it leaves the sides of the bowl and
let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour. (back to the oven). Roll out
dough 1/2" thick on a slightly floured board, and with a floured 2 inch
cutter or glass, cut out rounds. Fry the rounds in batches in deep hot fat
350* turning them unrtil they are golden brown. Transfer to paper towels to
drain and serve hot. Makes 24. Please notethis is the original recipe, I
do not use lard; I used a vegetable shortening. Lard does give it a
different texture. 94-10-18 Granma
