We live quite far north and nothing warms us up on cold days like warm breads and rolls. This wonderful recipe comes from a dear friend.

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Cook: 10 min.
MAKES: 24-26 servings


  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1-3/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 can (8-1/4 ounces) cream-style corn
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 6 to 7 cups all-purpose flour
  • Additional oil for deep-fat frying
  • Confectioners' sugar


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large saucepan, heat the milk, cornmeal, oil, sugar and salt to 110°-115°, add to yeast mixture. Add corn, eggs and 6 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into a 15-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Cut into 3-in. x 1-1/2-in. strips.
  4. In a deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Drop dough strips in batches into oil; fry for 45-75 seconds or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Yield: about 6-1/2 dozen.
