When I tell you that the whole family will love this bread, it's no joke. Gather the ingredients because you're about to make something incredible that your family won't be able to get enough of!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of flour + a little extra for dusting
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons of pumpkin spice
  • 1 large apple, grated
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons of water

Instructions

  1. Grate one large apple with a cheese grater. 
  2. In a small bowl combine the lemon juice and water. Put the grated apple into this mixture. Toss the apples in the juice until they are covered. This will prevent browning.
  3. In a medium sized bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and pumpkin spice.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry mix and add vanilla.
  5. Pour milk over top of the vanilla and begin mixing with a small spatula or a fork until a soft dough forms.
  6. Flour your work area and pull the dough out of the mixing bowl. 
  7. Knead by hand on a floured surface.
  8. Begin working the grated apple into the dough as you knead.
  9.  Continue to knead until the dough feels smooth and not at all sticky.
  10. Allow it to rest for 5 to 10 minutes in the fridge as you preheat a deep skillet of oil. I use 2 to 3 cups of oil in a large frying pan, heated on medium high heat. You need about an inch and a half over the bottom of the skillet.
  11. As your oil is heating up, begin to divide the dough up into 6 sections. With your hands, work the dough until it is about ½ inch thick. 
  12. Poke a little hole here and there in the dough to keep it flat, but if you want the pumpkin spice fry bread to be puffy and fluffy, you can skip poking holes in it.
  13. Allow the dough to dry for about 3 to 4 minutes, then flip it. The coloring should be a nice golden brown. After frying the other side, remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and allow to drain on paper towels for a moment.
