Easy to follow Scones Recipe. Deep fried bread is delicious with a little butter and honey.
Scones are amazing! Especially when they are hot with melted butter and honey. Oh yum!
I have heard of scones being called many different things, Sopaipillas, Fried Bread, and Navajo Tacos when covered with taco meat, lettuce and tomatoes. But whatever you call them they taste amazing!
Scones start with homemade bread. I love homemade bread but hate making it. All of the waiting for it to rise, then kneading and waiting… I have better things to do. That is why I love my Oster Breadmaker Breadmaker, it does all of the kneading and waiting for me and I love it!
For the dough, I used a traditional white bread recipe.
Press start and let the bread maker work its magic. Mine takes 90 minutes and then I am left with this glorious bucket of bread dough.
On the stove, heat about 1/2 – 1/3 inch of oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. This is how we are going to fry the bread.
Take a handful of bread dough
and roll it out on a floured surface. You don’t want the dough too thin, it should have some thickness.
Cut into manageable pieces. Of course the bigger the piece the bigger the scone.
When the oil is nice and hot begin laying the dough in the pan. I always do the water popping test. If the oil makes a popping noise when I sprinkle some water in the pan then it is the right temperature.
You can cook several at a time depending on the size of your skillet.
Cook about 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
When you pull them out of the oil lay them on paper towels to collect some of the extra oil.
You want to let them cool for just a minute so you can handle them, but they really are better when you can eat them nice and warm.
Slather lots of butter on and a good coating of honey and you have an amazing chunk of goodness!
While butter and honey are my favorite toppings you can also use, Nutella, jelly, powdered sugar, fresh fruit, whipped cream, really the possibilities are endless.
