GREAT PEOPLE ~ GREAT FOOD
On occasion young children are reluctant to try one, for fear of having contributed to the deafening of an elephant. BUT NO ELEPHANTS ARE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF OUR ELEPHANT EARS.
An elephant ear is made by deep-frying a large portion of risen yeast dough. It gets its name from its size and shape.
The ear may then be sprinkled with a variety of toppings, such as cinnamon & sugar, powdered sugar, caramel, chocolate syrup, nuts, sugar frosting, fruit topping or Bavarian cream.
Depending on the region or culture they are also referred to as fry bread, doughboys, frying saucers, fried dough, bunelos, and even beaver tails.
No matter what you call 'em, everyone agrees....."Pure Goodness!"
