METHOD


The Meaty Part

  1. Preheat oven to 230 Degrees Celsius

  2. In a small bowl mix Pumpkin Powder & Warm Water to create a smooth pumpkin puree & put to one side

  3. Sift Self Raising Flour & Caster Sugar into a large mixing bowl

  4. Rub Softened Butter into flour & sugar mix, then rub in with your fingers until the mix looks like fine crumbs.

  5. Add pumpkin puree, Milk & Egg to the crumby flour mix combine it quickly with a cutlery knife – it will seem pretty wet at first

  6. Dust some flour onto the work surface and tip the dough out

  7. Fold the dough over a few times till it is a bit smoother. Flatten into a sheet about 2cm thick.

  8. Take a 5cm cutter & cut out rounds & place on a greased baking tray

  9. Press what’s left of the dough back into a 2cm sheet and cut out some more scones, repeat till all the dough is into rounds

  10. Brush the tops of the scones with a little Milk

  11. Place in a preheated oven and bake for 12 - 14 minutes until scones are risen & golden brown.

  12. Serve with Softened Butter, Cream, or your favorite Jam

  13. Enjoy!
