Journey Bread and Donuts

Going on a Trip – Old Time Journey Bread


Also called fry bread or Indian fry bread (depended on who was cooking)


3 1/2 cups flour

2 tsp salt

2 tsp Baking powder

1 cup milk


Knead until soft but not sticky. Roll thin as you can get it.


Fry in cast iron (the big ol’ black one) frying pan in light coating of grease, no need for deep fry depth of grease


Easy to make while traveling thus – Journey bread

Sometimes on the trail this bread was placed on a greased board near the fire, but more often a piece of tin or iron was used


-Take the same dough –

Deep fat fry in an inch or so of grease, flip once with a fork

 Put it in a paper bag or cloth sack while still very warm (right out of the grease) pour in a 1/3 of a cup of regular sugar and shake like mad

Donuts, just like great-great grandma made!
