Dripping with butter and honey or sprinkled with powdered sugar, fried breakfast scones are simple, quick and impossible to resist!
I love scones for breakfast! They are so yummy! I like them with dripping with butter and honey. A couple of my kids like them with sprinkled with cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar. Any way you choose to eat these, they will be delicious! Fried scones are also really quick and easy. I make the scone dough while the frying oil is heating up. I think I started making these scones about 8:10 Saturday morning and they were cooked and eaten by 8:35. I think that’s pretty good for a homemade breakfast. Hope you enjoy this recipe!
So the first thing I do is let my oil heat up while I make the scone dough. Your oil will need to be about 350 degrees to fry the scones. For the scone dough, whisk the dry ingredients together and then stir in the warm milk. Stir until a sticky dough forms. On a flour sprinkled countertop or cutting board, dump out the dough and knead it just a couple times so it is not so sticky. Roll or pat in it out to between 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
I use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into rectangle shaped pieces. You should get roughly 12 scones out of a batch of dough.
Before placing the pieces of dough in the hot oil, lightly brush the excess flour off. Fry each scone until golden on each side. Remove from oil and place them on a plate lined with a paper towel. Serve them hot with butter, honey, jam, syrup, powdered sugar, or cinnamon sugar. Enjoy!
