"This is my dad's version of scones. It is a dough like cinnamon roll dough and it is fried in hot oil. Very good Sunday treat. Served with honey, jam or sprinkled with powdered sugar."

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the scalded milk, sugar, margarine and salt. In a small bowl, stir together the yeast and warm water. Let stand 10 minutes, or until foamy.
  2. Stir the yeast mixture into the milk mixture. Blend in the eggs. Mix in the flour one cup at a time to make a soft dough. Cover bowl and let rise in a warm place until double.
  3. Heat one inch of oil in a deep heavy skillet to 370 degrees F (180 degrees C). Form large handfuls of dough into flat pancake shapes and fry them in the hot oil, turning once, until golden brown on both sides. Remove from oil to drain on paper towels.

I halved this recipe. It was really simple to make and delicious! It reminded me of elephant ears you'd get at a fair. We put cinnamon and sugar on ours and sprinkled with powdered sugar.
