  • Add vegetable oil about a 1/2 inch up the sides of a 10 or 12-inch cast iron pan and heat over medium heat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Create a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the milk and water. Stir with a fork until a soft, slightly sticky dough forms.
  • Transfer dough to a well-floured surface, with floured hands, shape the dough into an 8-inch disc.
  • Once the oil is hot, gently slip the disc of dough into the oil, being careful not to touch it. Fry the dough on each side for 4 to 5 minutes until dough is puffed and golden brown, only flipping the dough once with tongs or two spatulas. Remove the dough from the pan and rest on a plate covered with paper towels.
  • Stir together sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over hot bread. Slice into 8 wedges and serve with butter.


Cinnamon Sugar can be omitted for a flavor similar to a buttermilk biscuit.
