Ingredients:  
1 Tbsp. Yeast
1 Tbsp. Sugar
1/4 Cup Very Warm Water
2 Cups Scalded Buttermilk, slightly cooled
1 Egg, slightly beaten
2 Tbsp. Salad Oil
1 Tsp. Salt
1 Tsp. Baking Soda
5-6 Cups Flour

Directions:
Directions:
Combine in a glass container yeast, sugar, and water then proof. Note: Proofing yeast is letting the yeast mixture puff up to about twice its size. In a large bowl place buttermilk, egg, oil, salt and baking soda; mix well. Then add the yeast mixture to the bowl and mix again. Now while mixing slowly add 5 to 6 cups flour, just enough to make soft dough. Soft dough is a little sticky to the touch. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes using as little flour as possible if you are kneading it by hand. Kneading is working the dough with your hands by pushing and folding the dough over and over. After kneading place the dough in a greased bowl at least twice the size of the dough, cover it and let it rise for about a half an hour. Note: You can seal it in a Tupperware bowl and put it in the fridge overnight. To cook the scones, oil your hands and shape the dough into the desired shapes, they should be about 1 inch thick and however long you want them. I shape my scones in about 3 inch diameter circles. While the scones are having a short rise, pour about an inch of cooking oil in a heavy frying pan or electric skillet. Heat the oil on high. Place the scone dough in the hot oil and fry on both sides until golden brown. Remove scones from the oil and drain on paper towels. Serve warm with butter, honey, jam or whatever you can think up.
