Carbalose Fry Bread?

Ok, you bread experts. I am willing to try this if someone could concoct proportions. My old fry bread recipe calls for self rising flour (cant put my hands on the recipe this minute) but I dont think there was any shortening in it.
I'd be glad to be a guinea pig if I had some idea how to start
Thanks

Here's a fry bread recipe I found with a note at the end about using self-rising flour - maybe this would give you a good starting point!

Fry bread mix:
4 C. white flour
1/2 t. salt
1 T. baking powder
1 3/4 C. lukewarm water

Fry bread:
Combine all dry ingredients. Add water and knead until dough is soft but not sticky. Add more flour if needed. Let dough sit for 4 hours and knead occasionally. Shape dough into balls the size of a small apple. Roll out dough to the size of a tortilla. Dough should be about 1/2-inch thick. Poke a small hole in the middle. Fry dough mixture in hot vegetable oil; oil should be about an inch deep. Brown on both sides. Drain and serve hot. (A shortcut for flour mixture is Gold Medal Self-Rising Flour and water; 4 cups self-rising flour and 2 cups lukewarm water.)


From what I've read with those who have already been using the Carbalose, you might want to ditch the added salt though!

Thanks, Charski.
I hope to find time to try it this weekend. I'll probably cut it in 1/2 so I dont use up all my Carbalose.
I'll let you know!
Thanks again

Can't wait to hear how this turns out - I'd love a fry bread taco!

Don't forget to double the baking powder. What does self rising flour have in it to make it rise?

This reminds me of a cornmeal recipe that an old friend used to make for me when I was a kid. She used some sort of yellow Indian cornmeal (if my memory serves me correctly) that she got when she went home to Florida. I think she used buttermilk and shaped the dough into donut shapes and fried it. It was wonderful!
