sounds like indian fried bread, which is basically what they use to make 
the elephant ears/beaver tails that they sell at fairs 'n such. 5 
ingredients in this particular recipe, from a cookbook my local grange put 
out when i was a teen. if you try a google search, you'll probably find 
umpteen recipes with only slight variations. 
 
 
1 cup  flour
2 tsp  baking powder
1 tsp  salt
2 Tbsp  shortening
  milk
  vegetable oil for frying
 
mix flour, salt and baking powder; cut in shortening. add enough milk to 
make a soft dough, mix just until blended. pat out on a floured board to 
about 1" thick. you can cut it into triangles, or just pat out about a 
handful at time into rough circles. 
 
put enough oil in a large, heavy skillet to reach about 1/4" deep and heat 
to deep-fry temperature. (a 1" square of bread turns golden in about a 
minute.) fry bread on each side until golden brown and puffy, turning 
once. drain briefly on paper towels and serve hot.
