These puftaloons are delicious, and super easy to make!  My Mum makes these fried scones to perfection, and I have fond memories of  my family enjoying these as a special treat.



  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Pinch salt
  • Oil or clarified fat
  • Golden syrup (to serve)


  1. Sift flour and salt together.
  2. Add milk, and mix into a soft dough.
  3. On a floured board, knead the dough lightly.
  4. Flatten to 1 cm thickness.
  5. Flour a small round cutter and cut circles from the dough.
  6. Heat a small amount of oil (or fat) in a pan,
  7. Gently fry the puftaloons until golden brown on each side.
  8. Place on absorbent paper to cool slightly, then serve with golden syrup.

Tip:  If using oil, ensure it has a high smoke point. I use rice bran oil.
