Once you try festival, you’ll start to think twice about other breads.

Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and cornmeal in a bowl.
Add the sugar and stir.
Add the vanilla to the water and then add the mixture to the dry ingredients, binding to form soft dough.
Leave covered for half an hour.
Divide the dough into eight portions.
Knead lightly, then roll and pull each portion to form a festival six inches in length and about one and a half inches thick.
Dip the festival in a mixture of cornmeal and flour and then deep fry it in hot oil until golden brown.
