Somali Sweet Bread (Kac Kac)
This is a sweet Somali bread. It is actually eaten more like a dessert than with a main dish. It is mainly served during Holidays. This is one of my favorite Somali foods!
Cook time about 20 minutes plus 30 minutes for dough to rest
Makes about 30-40 pieces
2 Cups of All Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup of Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
1/4 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
2 Tablespoons of butter (melted)
1 1/2 Tablespoons of warm milk
Oil for Frying the Kac Kac
Add all the ingredients to a bowl starting with the dry ingredients first. Mix with hand until a smooth dough forms. Slightly wet your hands and rub the dough to keep it soft. Cover with a wet towel and let it rest for 30 minutes.
Lightly flour a counter and roll the dough to about a 1/4 inch thick. Cut it to shapes, squares, diamonds whatever you choose.
Heat oil on medium high (about a 7 on the stove) add the Kac Kac to the oil and fry until brown. Drain on a paper towel. Serve.
