  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (240 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter , melted
  • ¾-1 cup warm water (200-250 ml)
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Powdered sugar

Cinnamon Honey Butter:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter , at room temperature (113 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon coarse salt


  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add the melted butter and ¾ cup warm water. Mix with a spoon until dough comes together into a ball. Dough should be moist but not sticky. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time if needed. Cover dough and let rest for one hour.
  • Pour enough vegetable oil into a wide skillet so that it's 2 inches deep. Set over medium high heat. Insert a thermometer and heat oil to 375°F.
  • Meanwhile, roll out the dough. Pinch off a tablespoon sized ball of dough at a time and roll it out on a lightly floured surface with a rolling pin. Stretch and pull with your hands if necessary. Dough should be about ¼ inch thick.
  • Fry bread in batches of 2 or 3 until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove from oil with tongs or a slotted spoon and place on a sheet pan lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve immediately with the cinnamon honey butter or other desired topping.

To make the cinnamon honey butter:

  • Beat all ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth and somewhat creamy, about 2 minutes. Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 1 week.
