recipe name

April 8th, 2011

These savoury scones work well as a snack or on the side of a bowl of soup.

Makes 16 scones.

Ingredients.

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked pureed pumpkin
  • 4 cups self raising flour (may need more)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper

Method.

Heat the oven to 200 C / 390 F.

Sift the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. Blend together the pumpkin, soy milk and oil then add to the dry ingredient. Gently mix in until just combined.

Turn the dough out onto a floured bench and fold together with your hands a few times.

Roll the dough out into a half inch thick square. Cut into sixteen equal squares. Gently push the edges in to make each scone circular and place on a baking tray.

Brush the tops with a little milk. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in a hot oven (200 C/390 F) until the scones are a little browned on top.
