1 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
2 cups water
1 cup mashed potato
If you are using a bread machine follow your machine directions and set the dough cycle. .
If you are using a standing mixer then mix yeast with warm water and half a teaspoon of sugar. Let it sit for five minutes. Mix all the ingredients and mix until the dough is set.
Let the dough sit for 30 minutes or until it doubles. Mix it again and divide the dough into four equal parts. Again divide those parts into four equal parts to make even scones. Grease the baking pan with butter and put your scones 1/2 inches apart. Let it sit for 30 minutes again and turn the oven at 325 F degree. Bake it for 30 minutes.
Note you can egg wash your scones before you bake them for different textures.
Good luck, have fun and enjoy your scones
