The Best Keto Elephant Ears Recipe
No, We’re Not Going To Teach You How To Cook An Elephant
If you’re not from America, you may have absolutely no idea what this recipe is about. But, hey, don’t fret! We’re not only here to teach you how to bake the best keto elephant ears recipe in the world, but we also happen to be very good at imparting very important factual wisdom to anyone that wants to listen. So, what exactly are elephant ears?
Time To Fry
Elephant ears are actually made by frying pieces of dough. They have other names, the more respectable being fry dough, fry bread, scones and pizza fritters, along with the bizarre, such as doughboys, flying sauces and beaver tails. You take your pick, but we’re going to stick with elephant ears for the rest of this article.
Anyway, even though these yummy pieces of fried dough are round, they look nothing like doughnuts, beignets or fritters. This is because they are large and relatively flat, and contain no other ingredients such as jelly or chocolate sauce. Generally, they are available at outdoor events, such as carnivals and amusement parks (hence why these places always smell so good) but they’re also very easy to make at home. They’re usually available as a warm dessert or snack, but they’re also incredibly tasty at breakfast.
