Hello Tree Bear Bear,
How did the Natives do bread without baking powder.
I was thinking fry bread could be done without this or an alternative that might be better, like in the days past.

I make flat bread and fry it in varied seasoned oils and always yummy. I use warm water instead of baking powder and let it sit for a few minutes. Also, add nut flour and shredded coconut sometimes.
love, calf woman
