Aside

Continuing with the scone theme…….pumpkin scones. They would have to be our favourite, plus there are pumpkins everywhere at the moment.

Ingredients

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

Method

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
