2-1/2 tsp active dry yeast
2 tbsp warm water
1 cup scalding milk
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup sugar
1-1/2 cups starter
5 cups flour, divided
1 tsp salt
Mix yeast and water in a large mixing bowl until dissolved.
Heat milk, and add oil and sugar to cool the milk. Combine with yeast mixture. Add starter, 2 cups flour, and salt. Beat with mixer for 3 minutes. Add remaining 3 cups flour and knead by hand.
Place dough in a greased bowl and let rise until doubled.
Form into small bowls. Let rise for 10 minutes. Fry in deep fat until brown. I preferred to flatten the balls so the inside would be sure to get cooked.
To make whipped honey, I place 2 tbsp softened butter and 1/2 cup honey in a food processor and whipped. Then I added 1/2 tsp cinnamon and whipped another 30 seconds. Spoon over fry bread while warm. Enjoy!
