Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 loaf frozen white bread dough (16-ounce)
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Cooking oil for shallow-fat frying

Thaw bread dough according to package directions. Cut into 12 pieces. In a small bowl, stir together the sugar and cinnamon; set aside.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out each piece of dough to form a 1/8 to 1/4-inch thick oval. In a heavy skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook bread ovals 1 or 2 at a time, in shallow hot oil (about 1/2-inch) for 45 to 60 seconds per side or till bread ovals are brown.

Remove with tongs and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture over the fried bread. Keep warm in oven while frying the remainder.

Makes 12 ears

NOTES : From Michigan State Fair in Detroit. Great topped with vanilla ice cream!
