Continuing with the scone theme…….pumpkin scones. They would have to be our favourite, plus there are pumpkins everywhere at the moment.
3 cups SR flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp nutmeg
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups cooked mashed pumpkin (we use Kent)
approx 200 mls cream
Heat oven to 200° C (fan forced)
Sift flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt into large bowl
gently mix through cooled mashed pumpkin
add as much cream as the mixture needs to hold together (it makes a really soft,sticky dough).
Tip mixture onto floured surface and pat flat with hand until approx 2cm thick
cut scones with floured scone cutter
Place scones next to each other on cooking tray (covered with glad bake)
Bake for 10 mins or until golden brown
Serve hot with butter or favourite topping
