Method Prep:15min › Cook:33min › Ready in:48min
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to the boil. Add sweet potato, cover and steam until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Strain into a bowl and mash until smooth.
Mix flour and salt together in a large bowl. Rub in butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in sugar, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Add mashed sweet potatoes; mix until dough comes together.
Turn dough out onto a floured work surface; divide in half. Pat each half into a circle the size of a large dinner plate. Stamp out scones with a cutter or slice each circle into 8 wedges. Transfer scones to two baking trays.
Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
