Scones Recipe (also known as Fry Bread)

You will need:

  • 2 Tablespoons yeast
  • 2 Cups warm water
  • 4 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Tablespoon oil
  • 4 Cups Flour
  • 1-4 cups of oil for frying

In a large mixing bowl dissolve yeast into warm water.  Then add in sugar, salt and oil, mix then add flour one cup at a time.  Form into dough then cover bowl with towel and set aside for 15 minutes to allow to raise.  Heat oil in deep frying pan over med/high heat. You can roll the dough out like a tortilla or just pat it flat in your hands (getting it thin as you can)  Fry on both sides for about 1 minute on each side (total cooking time 2-3 minutes).  Recipe makes 15-20 scones depending on how big you make them.

Serve with your favorite topping….  honey, jam, butter, powdered sugar, or use as the base to a Navajo Taco.

  1. This recipe is fantastic!  So easy.  I usually use Rhodes frozen rolls and let the dough thaw several hours but this recipe is so easy and quick and taste better.  I don’t actually roll it out as thin as possible.  I leave it around a 1/4 inch thick.  It makes a heartier scone.  Delicious.
