  1. Preparation : Put 2 to 3 inches oil in fryer and heat to 400F. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add 1/2 cup warm water and continue adding water to reach the consistency of bread dough. Tear off balls of dough. Roll out balls on a board lightly dusted with cornmeal to 1/4 inch thick. Punch a hole in the center of each piece. Fry bread one at a time, turning as soon as it becomes golden. Drain on absorbent paper and serve hot with honey or powdered sugar. These are also good plain or with salsa on top.
