    These Australian-born scones are reminiscent of Queensland, where the popular Queensland Blue pumpkin grows. A very tasty treat!

    Serves: 6 

    • 4 tablespoons softened butter
    • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 250g pumpkin puree

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:15min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Lightly grease a baking tray.
    2. Cream together butter and sugar, then beat in egg, pumpkin puree and 4 tablespoons milk until smooth. Stir in flour until a dough forms, then knead a few times on a well floured surface until the dough holds together. Press the dough into a flat circle 1 to 1.5cm thick. Cut into 6 wedges, place onto greased baking tray, and brush the tops with 2 tablespoons of milk.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown on top and bottom, 10 to 15 minutes. Once done, wrap scones with a clean tea towel and allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving.

    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)
