Posted in : BREAKFAST on by : Admin

Giant golden puffy fried scones – Utah style – served with honey and powdered sugar. So easy to make and dangerously tasty!

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
  • Instructions

  • 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 honey and powdered sugar!
