4 cups plain flour

1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 3/4 cups warm milk
canola oil to fry.
place flour, salt and baking powder into a large bowl.
add milk and butter and stir into a dough.
tip out dough onto a floured board and knead till smooth,
incorporating more flour if needed.
roll into a ball, cover and let rest for 20 minutes.
once rested pull off golf ball (approx) size balls of dough
and roll or press to palm size circles.
in a large frypan over a medium heat, heat enough oil to deep fry the bread, about 2 inches deep.
test heat by dropping in a little dough. if it bubbles, it's ready
cook about 4 pieces at a time, turning when brown, should only take a minute or so. if browning too
fast, turn heat down.

place on a plate and sprinkle with icing sugar.
serve warm with jam and cream. we also serve with nutella and lemon curd.
