Slut Bread

My mom learned this bread from her mom and I learned from my mom but I can't say for sure where the name came from. This website gives the closest definition of what I have heard from my mom and grandma. If you read down under Etymology, you can see the early meanings of the word and how the name could be connected to a cook or to bread. This recipe is very similar to the Native-American fry bread, which was first made using the rations that the government gave the Native-Americans on the reservations.


Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 pkg. yeast
  • 2 tbs. melted butter
  • 3 tbs. sugar
  • bit of salt
  • 6 cups flour
Method:
Mix 1/2 cup warm water and yeast. Set aside five minutes. Add 1 1/2 cups water, butter, sugar, and salt. Slowly add flour until dough forms an elastic ball. Sometimes I knead this by hand, which takes quite awhile, or you can use a mixer. Transfer the dough to a greasy bowl and cover loosely with a piece of plastic wrap, which has also been greased. Let dough rise in a warm place for one hour, until doubled in size. When ready, heat a bit of oil, shortening, or lard in a large skillet. You will want enough to shallow fry the bread. When the oil is hot, pinch off a small lemon size round of dough and shape it using your fingers and hand into an oval...the shape does not have to be perfect! You can also vary the size of bread to suit your taste. Place the bread in the hot oil and fry until golden brown, or a little darker if that is your preference. Some parts will be lighter than others since the dough is not rolled out perfectly. When the dough is ready, flip to other side and finish in the same way. Remove bread to a towel lined plate and butter if desired. Serve hot, hot, hot!
