    Those look so yummy! I'm from Canada too but I've never heard of these. I'm from Vancouver though so I guess that's not one of the select cities that has beavertails. Too bad!

    I make something similar that in Utah we call scones. But I haven't tried them with the cinnamon and sugar. They look so yummy!

    I so can't wait to try the recipe. It would be nice to have them as a treat in the summer and not have to go downtown for them…

    I was just googling Beaver Tails…
    I think it is just an Ontario/Ottawa thing.

    I happen to live in a rural town in British Columbia now (10 years) and the chef at my restaurant is also from Ontario and we were reminiscing on Beaver Tails and came online to find a recipe.

    Thank you so much for this from 1 home sick Ottawa person to another!

    I live in Ottawa! I haven’t been skating yet since it’s so darn cold outside, but this upcoming weekend my sister is coming to visit and DEMANDS we go! So, we’re going skating on the canal, and then we’re going to get some Beavertails at the restaurant. I love this city.

    Great Recipe! here in the Northwest those are called Indian Fry bread… and are sold at rodeos and county/state Fairs either with butter and honey or chili & taco toppings… Elaphant ears are rolled much thinner and bigger but from the same kind of dough…

    I love Beaver Tails! I’ve told so many people about them but unless you’re from the Ottawa area, you get a blank look. The Toronto Zoo also has a stand now. Thanks so much for posting – I’ll have to try them!

    We live in the “Northcounty” in NY state and go to Ottawa often including Winterlude. We love beaver tails.
