    This stove top bread looks wonderful and I’d really like to try it. I take it it’s #2? And how long did you cook it and in what type of oil?

    • it was warm water, one beaten farm egg (as a cheap o mile way to replace the added fat), 1 tsp of salt, 1 tbsp. of mollasis, 1 tsp of yeast, and about three cups of flour, but I did not measure water or flour, just eyeballed THE Water and beat and then kneeded flour till right texture and feel, I made one loaf, one pizza crust and four fry breads out of the recipe above, it was cooked in a blend of olive oil, coconut oil and lard which is what is in my fryer but you n use any good oil, its the temp of it that matters more then the type as long as it has a higher cook temp, I have done it in cast iron with just a few inches of oil as well, slice, pull and flatten the small piece of dough, then drop in oil, do not touch till floated up and golden brown on the underside, about two to three min, flip cook about another two min till golden brown and drain on a towel, served on the side, fry bread, served with butter and jam, we call it dough dogs. served with sugar and cinnamon and its beaver tails..
