When the onion scone dough separates from the bowl, add the fried onions and let it work. Then remove the lumps of dough from the bowl and continue kneading with your hands on the work surface until all the fried onions are incorporated into the dough. Cover and leave to rise in a plastic container in a warm place for about 60 minutes.
Remove the dough from the bowl and divide it into two parts. Mix each one again briefly, shape each one into a small scone with onion and place it in a pan lined with baking paper. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and leave to rise again for about 30 minutes. Tip: If you don’t want two loaves of bread, but one big one, simply knead the dough briefly and shape it into a loaf. However, smaller loaves are easier to divide and do not dry out as quickly.
