3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup warm water
3 tablespoons honey
Oil, or lard
Mix warm water and honey; mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Roll out on floured surface. Pull off large egg-sized balls of dough and roll out into thin rounds with a hole in the middle.
Fry rounds in hot oil until bubbles appear on the dough, turn over, and fry on the other side until golden.
Hang on rawhide cord and eat as needed. If the bread becomes too hard, soak in water or coffee.
This was a travel, survival food of Indians long before the pioneers moved west. The people of the frontier soon learned how useful the bread was, especially for traveling.
