Fail Proof Scones
Easy and delicious fail proof scones that are delicious topped with your favorite topping; powdered sugar, honey or honey butter.
- 1 Tablespoon yeast
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 Tablespoons oil
- 3 cups f lour
- 3 Tablespoons sugar
- Oil for frying
- Honey and Butter for topping the scones
Mix the dough in a stand mixer or by hand until well incorporated. The dough will be kind of crumbly.
Add flour to your counter and knead by hand, adding a tablespoon of water at a time until the dough is soft. I do it this way because it helps ensure the right amount of water every time.
Allow the dough to rest in a warm place. I usually let the dough rest for about a half an hour or so.
Then I roll the dough out and cut it into squares.
Heat 1-2 inches of oil over medium heat for 5 minutes before you start frying.
Test that the oil is hot enough by putting a small piece of dough in the oil. If it starts to bubble around the dough right away, it is hot enough to fry your scones.
DO NOT use high heat, the oil will get too hot and the scones will burn on the outsides before they cook through the middle.
Let each scone fry until light brown, flip it over to the other side and let that brown.
Using tongs to remove the scones from the oil and allow them to sit on a paper towel to drain the oil.
Top the scones with your favorite toppings, powdered sugar, honey or Honey and Butter and serve hot.
