I flipped through a Sunset food magazine for the first recipe I wanted to make and came across this dish for fried dough. What could be wrong with that? As an added bonus, I had all the necessary ingredients in my pantry and did not have to go out to the store in a storm. The recipe states that it can be halved and that is what I did. With just two of us in the house, you can have too much fried dough.
I followed the recipe exactly as written and I did not need to add additional flour. The dough was very stiff as it was. I garnished mine with powdered sugar and honey. The most difficult part of the process for me was maintaining the frying oil at 350 degrees on a propane stove. I overcooked a few but the end results was a very tasty treat of fried dough. The only change I would make would be to add a little bit more sugar to the dough. Other than that, perfect.
Here is the recipe from Sunset:
