Spiced Pumpkin Scones 

Spiced Pumpkin Scones

Think pumpkin pie in scone form and you wouldn’t be far away from the flavour of these autumnal scones. Delicious served warm with butter and jam. Try a delicious plum or damson jam or even like me an apple and cinnamon jelly! Let’s keep the autumnal vibe going as long as we can and hold off winter for a little bit longer. You will find these delicately spiced scones a little more dense than a regular scone due to the pumpkin purée but don’t worry. They are still absolutely delicious!

Ingredients
  1. 480g self raising flour
  2. 2 tbsp caster sugar
  3. 50g butter
  4. 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  5. 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  6. 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  7. 1 egg
  8. 2 tbsp milk
  9. 225g unsweetened pumpkin purée from a can
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/gas 4. Line a baking tray with parchment.
  2. Soft the flour into a bowl. Add the sugar and spices and combine.
  3. Rub in the butter so the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  4. Add the egg, milk and pumpkin purée then combine using a cold knife.
  5. Turn the mixture onto a floured surface and bring together. Try not to handle the dough too much. Using a floured cutter, cut out scones and place on the baking tray. Paint tops with milk.
  6. Put in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Check them to see if they sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. If not then put them back in for another 5-10 minutes. These scones are a little more dense than regular scones given the fact that they have pumpkin purée in them.
  7. Transfer to a wire rack to cool and then serve with your favourite butter and autumnal jam.
