Our Family's Favorite Fried Food

Updated on August 1, 2011

A food that my children always ask me to make is something we call "schuhlappen". My mom grew up speaking German so we have all these German foods that we make. Directly translated it means "shoe overlap", but it means shoe tongue. I guess it's because they look like the tongue of a shoe when they are being fried.

This is a really simple dessert to make and my kids go crazy for them. They taste kind of like a doughnut. All you need is frozen white bread dough, oil for frying and some white sugar.

You thaw a loaf of bread dough and either cut or tear a piece off. You want a piece that is about an inch or two long and wide. They don't need to be specific, but you don't want it to be too big because it won't cook through. You want to stretch it thin and place it in the oil. The oil should be about 350 degrees. You can test it by dropping a small piece of the bread dough and see if it starts to sizzle. You can usually put 2 or three pieces in the pot at one time. Fry for about 2 minutes on each side or until they reach a golden brown color. Take them out of the oil and onto a plate covered with paper towels to absorb the excess oil. Immediately shake sugar over the them. You could also use a cinnamon and sugar mixture. They are best served warm, but are also a fun treat at room temperature.

These are so easy and cheap to make, you may find yourself making them quite often. Enjoy!
