I have actually never made fried scones in my life. One of my grandmothers used to and they were wonderful. When I saw this recipe I had to post it. It is posted with permission from Prepared Pantry.
- Mix the bread as instructed from your favorite recipe or mix and let the dough rise.
- Instead of forming loaves, roll or pat the dough on a counter until it is about 1/2-inch thick.
- Slice the dough into wedges, separate the pieces, cover, and let them rise again until twice as thick.
- Heat a pan of oil until hot and slip the dough pieces two or three at a time into the hot oil. When one side is browned, turn the dough over. If the oil is hot enough, the dough should absorb little oil.
- When done, drain the fried bread on paper towels.
That’s all there is to it. Serve them hot with butter and syrup or melted jam. (In one image above, the scones are sitting in a pool of butter rum syrup. In the other, that’s melted strawberry jam.)

“These are the scones I grew up with–thick slabs of fried bread dough with melting butter and smothered in thick syrup. We couldn’t wait until Mom made bread again.”–Dennis
