These Australian-born scones are reminiscent of Queensland, where the popular Queensland Blue pumpkin grows. A very tasty treat!
You can find tinned 100% pumpkin puree at Waitrose, via Ocado or in specialty shops. You can also make your own with this recipe.
Just wondering tho, what can u substitute for self raising flour, how much b.powder i mean. - 01 Dec 2013
These were good and very easy to make! I did add 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (and I might go with even more next time), substituted brown sugar for half the white and sprinkled vanilla sugar on top. Thanks for the recipe! - 10 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Thanks for the wonderful recipe! As suggested I added some spices to the dough--cinnamon and ginger--and for fun stirred in some chocolate chips. This would also probably be very good with some candied ginger and/or dried cranberries in the mix. Just the thing for a rainy fall afternoon! - 20 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
