It's been a few years since I got a chance to have fry bread, the type that was part of my childhood and potlaches when I was a bit older. And I'm old enough to know better, to eat healthy foods most of the time. There's a reason that I don't make it at all and I don't seek it out. And that's without being gluten free.

But I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to make gluten free fry bread? I know it's a question that someone else asked more than two years ago without any success. (I checked.) On the other hand...I figured it couldn't hurt.

How do you make regular fry bread? Maybe we can convert it.

I am more than a little giddy right now. Never mind that I have no idea where to buy betterbatter--there's a possibility of fry bread. This will join the rank of fried green tomatoes on the list of foods that I can now eat that remain gloriously bad for me. (Next on my list: kolaches. Yes, I know my extremely mixed heritage shows in my food preferences.)

As for how one makes fry bread...

2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
Deep hot fat in frypan or fryer
This is the basic recipe--the version when I was a kid was powdered milk instead and any fat there was in the pan. And I'm actually laughing at the idea that one would only make a recipe that only has 2 cups worth of flour; I've never seen this any less than quadrupled.

Gluten free breads that don't require yeast seem to work better for me.

This recipe would be fun to try with different flours to see what different flavors you could create.

Almond flour...

Amaranth...

I was just looking at my old fry bread recipe the other day. I haven't made it gluten-free but I think just subbing the flour for a gluten-free flour blend and adding some Xanthum gum would do it. Let me know how they turn out. My kids would be really surprised if I made these for them. I don't think they have had them since we left AZ.

I'm not going to have a chance until at least Thanksgiving (yay essays and second-round-midterms-of-the-semester), but I'll keep you posted.
