This isn't exactly a "healthy" recipe in itself, but what you put on it can certainly make it healthier. If honey butter isn't your thing, then put applesauce on top, or any type of fruit for that matter. Be creative! Be aware, though...this makes A LOT of scones!
5 c warm water
3 Tbsp yeast
1 Tbsp sugar
Combine and set aside until foamy. Once foamy, combine with following:
1/2 c sugar
1 tsp salt
3 Tbsp shortening or margarine
enough flour to make a soft dough ball (add 1 cup at a time)
Place in a greased bowl and let rise for about 1/2 hour, or until doubled...depending on how many scones you want to make! Be advised...if making the full recipe, you'll need a LARGE bowl.
Pour oil in pan or skillet to about 1/2 inch. Heat oil to about 350-375 degrees. Pinch off a small handful of dough, then separate and stretch to desired size. Place in oil and cook until bottom is golden brown, then turn over using tongs. Once 2nd side is golden brown, remove from oil and let drain on paper towel. Put desired toppings on while warm.
