Remembering Our Danube Swabian Ancestors


Langos/Langosch "crispy fried dough"

by Jody McKim Pharr, 9 Aug 2005

Comment:  A delicious treat, made by my cousin's wife Lizzi Ingrisch. Delicious with sour cream, grated cheese, paprika & fresh garlic oil.

  • 1 kg of flour (2 pound)

  • 600 ml of water

  • 1 cube of yeast

  • 1 spoon of salt

  • 1 cooked and grated potato

  • a bit of baking soda

All these you have to knead. It shouldn't be too soft, the dough must stay together.
Cover the bowl with a cloth, place in a warm place 45 minutes to rise.

Then you roll it flat, cut rectangular pieces and form small balls. These you let rest for 10 minutes. With oiled hands take a piece and stretch it as much as you can.

Heat oil in a pan & fry each piece until both sides turn golden brown. Drain on paper towel.
