A Children's Book featured with a recipe for Lakota Fry Bread

Karen's Killer Fixin's

I'm honored to have been featured on Karen Docter's blog.

For those readers who love bread and fried stuff, I've included a recipe for Lakota Fry Bread. It's great hot out of the pan, but also good cold. My First Nations friend said she makes tacos with it, bison or ground beef on top with tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, and sour cream. Yum.

I don't measure and don't have the recipe handy, but here is how I make it:

2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
1 cup water to make soft dough
oil for frying

Form dough into a ball and divide into quarters, then flatten and fry for a few minutes on each side, turning when the first side is brown.

You can find different recipes on line but this is the easiest I have come across, and it's delicious!

Here's a little teaser from our children's chapter book, the wonderful Benjamin and Rumblechum!

Sister and brother Katie and Jacob travel across Canada and back with their two eccentric aunts, Kathleen and Mary, in a minivan named Rumblechum, with Benjamin, their stuffed monkey, sitting between them.
Rumblechum transports them through Saskatchewan, Manitoba and the huge province of Ontario, and finally back to their little grey house in Edmonton, Alberta.  Their dear calico cat Freedom is at the door to greet them, meowing with excitement and joy, and a mysterious parcel is opened.
A chapter book, the first of a planned series of young reader stories suitable for ages 3 to 12 years old. Fictional, but based on true traveling experiences.


  1. Wow, that's quite a journey! The recipe sounds easy too. I might try it. Thanks.

    1. There are lots of recipes on line for fry bread but this one seems easiest. Thanks, hope you try it.

  2. Enjoy Canada with Benjamin. Interesting that they use baking powder. The fry breads from the Southwest tribes do not.

    1. My First Nations neighbor uses baking powder in her bannock, too, i believe.
