These are not traditional scones! They are a delicious raised fried bread scone famous and loved here in Utah. Serve them with honey butter or your favorite syrup. We love buttermilk syrup best of all!
Combine warm water and warm milk (approximately 110ºF—think baby bottle warm). Stir in the sugar. Add dry active yeast and stir lightly. Allow yeast to activate, about 10 minutes. In a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, add milk mixture and melted cooled butter. Add the salt. Start the mixer and add the flour one cup at a time until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Up to 6 cups of flour may be needed. Dough should be slightly sticky but workable. Cover the dough in the bowl with a towel. Set in a warm place and allow to rise until doubled in volume.
Heat your oil in a large pan (with sides deep enough to fully immerse the scones) or a deep fryer and heat to 350 to 400ºF. While the oil is heating, roll the dough out onto the counter, without flour, into a large rectangle about 1/2 inch thick. You can butter the counter lightly. Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut into squares or triangles. Makes approximately 24 scones.
Once the oil is heated, cook the scones, in small batches, turning once, until they are golden brown on both sides and cooked through. Drain on a paper towel. Serve while hot.
They are traditionally served with a pat of butter and your favorite sweet topping including honey butter or jam and powdered sugar, or your favorite syrup.
Fresh sweet onions, sharp cheddar, crisp, sweet, nutty corn bead all in one muffin. Perfect as a side to fish or steak, with a picnic or in the morning. Add a grind of black pepper before baking for an extra kick.
Big Mama’s originals get a twist with various herbs and cheeses.
