Quick and Easy Buttermilk Scones

One answer to the buttermilk recipe request... These really are easy and nice scones. We usually have them on Christmas, but when we can fry outside we have them a lot then, too.

2 cups buttermilk
4 tsp. active dry yeast
1/2 c. warm water
5-6 c. flour (can substitute some whole wheat flour if desired :)
1/2 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 eggs
1/4 c. sugar
2 T. oil(plus oil for frying)

Warm buttermilk. Dissolve yeast in ½ c. warm water. Sift together the flour, salt, soda, and baking powder. Beat eggs separately. Add sugar and oil to eggs. Add buttermilk and yeast mixtures. Gradually add sifted ingredients. Beat constantly using wooden spoon. Add enough flour to make soft dough. Turn onto a floured counter an roll to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut it into squares. Let it rise for half hour. Fry in hot oil until golden brown.
