Fried Scone Kit with Syrup & Bread Mixes (an $8.78 value)
Use our famous (light and airy) Buttermilk Bread Mix and the syrup mix of your choice to make these delightful scones.
Here is how to make them:
Assemble the mix per the instructions but set your bread machine on the dough cycle and make your bread dough.
If you don’t have a bread machine, use your stand-type mixer equipped with a dough hook. Add the mix, yeast from the yeast packet (some of our mixes have the yeast mixed in with the flour), water and oil and mix with the dough hook at a medium speed. The dough should form a soft ball and pull away from the sides of the bowl as it mixes. After three or four minutes, the dough should become very stretchy, elastic. Mix longer if needed to become elastic.
It’s the gluten in the dough that makes it elastic. It forms when the proteins in the flour are hydrated with water and mechanically worked.
You’re ready to make fried bread.
Here are the steps:
1. Mix the bread as instructed from your favorite recipe or mix and let the dough rise.
2. Instead of forming loaves, roll or pat the dough on a counter until it is about 1/2-inch thick.
3. Slice the dough into wedges, separate the pieces, cover, and let them rise again until twice as thick.
4. 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.
5. When done, drain the fried bread on paper towels.
If you are looking for a light and fluffy bread from your bread machine, this is it. This bread will come from your bread machine as light, moist, and fluffy as some of the packaged commercial loaves from the store. It is soft enough to be your kids' favorite and you'll feel good serving it--a wholesome homemade bread without the preservatives and hydrogenated fat.
Not only is this bread light and fluffy, it has a better flavor than most commercial loaves. The secret is in the dairy. We use far more milk, sour cream, or buttermilk in our breads. In this bread, we've added a generous amount of buttermilk to give you just the right combination of tangy buttermilk and sweet dairy milk. See if you don't agree--this is the best buttermilk bread you have ever tasted.
Each package contains one mix. This mix makes a 1 1/2 pound-sized loaf. (Butter or margarine is not included. Yeast packets are enclosed.)
