This recipe was mind blowing for me. I grew up camping and never in my life thought to fry bread dough. But that is exactly what my in-laws did on our very first campout together.

It almost reminds me of Navajo tacos but sweeter. Served with a dust of powdered sugar or a spread of honey butter. This sweet treat is a staple in our home!

What You Need to Make Fried Scones

The recipe list for this is so short. Which is why it’s ideal for a campout. Minimal ingredients are always a good sign.

  • Frozen Roll Dough – We use Rhodes.
  • Oil for frying

I highly recommend using a Dutch oven. You can get a really nice one for at home or a cast iron version for the great outdoors. Either way, it will make your frying experience extra easy.

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Pour a little more then 2 inch’s of oil into a deep pan or Dutch oven.
  2. Heat the oil over a camp stove or stovetop until warm enough to fry. You can test this by either sticking the tip of a wooden spoon into the hot oil or ripping off a small piece of bread dough and carefully placing into the pot.
  3. The oil is ready when bubbles form around the wooden handle or the dough floats near the top.
  4. Flatten out each roll as thin as you can get it.
  5. Carefully place in the hot oil.
  6. You want to cook them about 2 minutes per side or until they are nice and golden. Make sure you use tongs to flip them and not your fingers.
  7. Drain on a paper towel and serve with powdered sugar or honey butter.

Fried Scones Recipe Tips and FAQs

  • Ingredient Tip: I really enjoy using peanut oil to fry this bread dough. It has a higher smoke point and never leaves a weird flavor. However, we have also used vegetable in a pinch.
  • Never try to flip the scones by hand. ALWAYS use tongs and be careful not to splash the hot oil.

Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on. Any recommendations?

I am new to the world of dutch-oven cooking. From looking at your pictures, it looks like you typically use your dutch oven on a stove. Do you use a regular coleman stove? Or do you cook these meals over coals of a fire? Thanks!

You can do it either way. When we camp with my in laws we use their stove. But when we are on our own (tent camping) we use coals. They are just as easy. Just heat them up and place them below and on top. You just need to make sure you keep track of how quickly it is cooking and add or remove coals accordingly. My father in-law said you will typically have six coals on top and on bottom. Not sure how true that is.

Here's another spin on the wonderful world of scones... instead of rolling the roll flat leave it in a ball and pop the little sucker in the oil {it'll fluff up about the size of a hamburger bun} when it's finished {2 minutes per side} tong it out and slice it in half and spread whip cream and slice fresh strawberries on it... marvelous darling!!!
