In New Mexico there is a difference between Fried Bread (also called Indian Fried Bread) and Sopapillas. Your directions are for fried bread, also it remains flat after frying. Great topped with meat sauce, cheese, chili, etc.... Sopapillas are rolled out into a thin round shape which is than cut into smaller pieces (about 3"x4"), they are fried until they swell into a flaky bubble and are a light golden color, cut them open add butter or honey (heaven!!) great stuffed also. I don't know about Elephant Ears but on the Island of Trinadad they are just called Bake, they are rolled out thick like fried bread but cut up like sopapillas, fried till they swell and are golden, remove from oil and sprinkle with a little salt, serve them the same way as fried bread or sopapillas or use them as you would dinner rolls although honey and butter are always an option.
