Fried Scones
This was a favorite with Mike and his family when he was growing up and we love it too! 

 

 Ingredients:

  • 1 cup hot water

  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast

  • 1/3 cup oil

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 3 1/2 cups flour

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 2 quarts oil, for frying

  • for serving: honey butter, syrup, honey, powdered sugar

 

 Ingredients:

  • Mix 3 tablespoons of warm water with yeast adding a pinch of sugar. Set aside for 10 minutes (mixture will rise and foam).

  • While yeast is rising, combine hot water, oil, salt, and sugar in a large bowl.

  • Add egg to the yeast mixture and mix well. Add the egg/yeast mixture to the oil/sugar mixture. Stir well.

  • Gradually add flour stirring well after each addition. Knead the dough as it stiffens until you get a doughy, elastic consistency ( about 5 minutes)

  • Place dough in a well-greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Let dough rise for about 30 minutes or until double in size.

 

 Frying Directions

  • Line cooling racks or plates with paper towels. Fill a large sauce pan with 2 inches of oil and heat to 350-375 degrees Fahrenheit over medium-high heat.

  • Meanwhile, punch down dough and divide into 12 balls. Roll out a piece of dough on a lightly floured surface into 1/4-inch thick circles or squares. Use your fingers to stretch out the balls of dough.

  • Carefully place two or three balls of dough in the oil and fry until golden brown on each side (about 1-2 mins). Transfer to paper towels to drain. Repeat until the dough is all fried.

  • Serve hot with honey butter, butter, syrup, or powdered sugar. Our favorite is the honey or maple butter!
