  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening

3 cups all-purpose flour 4 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons shortening lard, bacon fat Enough cold water to make a soft, but firm dough (about 3/4 cup liquid or more). Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add shortening and cut through with knife until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add liquid to make a dough that is soft but not sticky. If it is too sticky, just add a little flour, two tablespoons at a time, and knead until mixture is the right consistency. Heat enough fat (lard, bacon fat) to cover the bottom of a large cast-iron skillet. Form dough into a ball, divide into 4 equal parts. Form each part into a round ball, then flatten with your hands to form a round, flat bread . Place in hot fat and fry until bottom side is golden brown, then turn and cook in the same manner until the other side is light brown and the cake has puffed. Repeat for each piece of dough until all are done. Serve with butter and/or jam or jelly.
