How to make it

  • VERSION # 1:
  • Sift flour and salt. Add the milk near all at once and make into a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured board and knead slightly.
  • Press out one inch thick. Cut with a small round cutter.
  • Make a small quantity of clarified fat moderately hot in a small frying pan. Put the puftaloons in and fry gently until golden brown underneath, then turn and cook till the other side is brown. Drain on absorbent paper then serve hot.
  • VERSION # 2:
  • Mix flour and salt
  • Using fingers, rub butter or margarine into flour till it looks like breadcrumbs – just a little, no big lumps
  • Make a well in the centre and mix in milk to form a soft dough
  • Knead lightly
  • Roll or pat out into 2cm square and cut into rounds with a cutter or a knife
  • Fry bacon till crispy and then cook the puftaloons in the bacon fat till brown on each side OR heat some oil in a frying pan – not a lot, this is not deep frying – and cook them till golden and fluffy turning over as needed.

  • Serve with golden syrup, jam, bacon, honey, vegemite, golden syrup, jam, peanut butter, tomato sauce, whatever you like.

    This is the 1st recipe I have found that comes close to one my Nana made when I was a child. She made Fried Pumpkin Scones. Is there a way I could incorporate the pumpkin? Help? As these were our Sunday treat. I would love to learn them to pass onto my daughter.

    I loved these! I used method #2, made my own self-rising flour and melted some stored bacon fat to fry them in. They really did puff up! These are a fried biscuit kinda thing. Most successful biscuit I ever made. :)
    I added a couple of pictures and also put this in IMI. 11/3/13
