Recipe for family meals :

Sweet Fried Bread

It is many years since Hub-UK was first launched. It has been created from recipes contributed form all over the world, from professionals and amateurs alike. A great many of the recipes do not have any details as to who sent them in or from where they came. It would be a shame not to share them with you for this reason alone.

This is one such recipe. If you know where it originated, or perhaps it is even yours, let me know and I will add the necessary credits and acknowledgements.

"The most indispensable ingredient of all good home cooking - love, for those you are cooking for" ~ Sophia Loren.


3 cup sifted all purpose flour
1 tbsp butter
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup warm milk
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp sugar
1 x fat for deep frying


  • Combine dry Ingredients and cut in butter.
  • Add enough warm milk to make a soft dough, easy to handle. Knead on floured board until dough is very smooth and soft but elastic. Do not use a lot of extra flour.
  • Divide dough into 6 - 8 balls and brush the tops with melted butter.
  • Cover and let stand for 30 - 45 minutes.
  • Pat out each ball into a round about 5 or 6 inches in diameter and 1/4 inch thick.
  • Fry in deep fat (preheated to 365°F).
  • Dough should rise immediately to surface.
  • Cook until brown on one side, turn, and brown on other side being careful to not pierce crust.
  • Drain on kitchen towel and serve hot.
