Fried Dough

The smell of the Florida State Fair is what came to mind when I found this recipe. My grandmother used to make a pastry similar to the fried dough at the fair, although it was more like bite sized pieces. 


8 eggs
1 cup sugar1 tsp. salt1 pint milk, warm1 stick butter soft4 cups flour
2 packages yeast


Pour yeast in 1 cup warm milk
and 1 tablespoon of sugar, stir.

Sift together flour, salt, and
sugar and make a well in mixture.

Add eggs and milk a little at a time.

Add butter.

Stir well.

Mix thorough and place dough in large greased bowl.

Cover and let rise for about 11/2 to 2 hours.

When dough rises and appears light in texture,
cut off some of the dough and stretch it with your hands.

Drop into hot fat and fry until golden brown.

Add anything you would like to the fried dough,
such as powdered sugar, cinnamon and sugar.

This recipe was given to me by a friend - origin unknown
