Ingredients

  • Baking Powder (2 Teaspoons)
  • Salt (Approximately 1 Teaspoon)
  • ... who learned this from my Grandmother
  • 2 Cup Water (Warmed)
  • 1 Cup Milk (Warmed)
  • Lard (1 lb.)

Directions

Put the entire amount of Flour into a large mixing bowl.
Make a well in the middle of flour.Pour in the warmed liquids
Add the salt and baking powder.
Mix with a large spoon slowly adding in flour from the sides (similar to mixing a cake by hand). Keep adding flour until you feel you can start to knead it by hand.
Knead until it doesn't stick to your hand. Then let the dough rest for 1/2 hour.
Beak off golf ball size of dough and put on a floured plate.
Heat the lard in a large cast iron skillet.
Note: To test the temperature of the lard, sprinkle drops of water on the lard. If it dances quickly, the bread frying is ready to begin.
Flatten your individual balls of dough and fry on both sides to a golden brown.
Adjust your heat as needed.
