Made with plain wheat flour, fresh homeamde butternut squash puree, and crisp fried onion, these simple tasty pumpkin scones are best served with butter, sour cream or chutney over a pot of tea. They are the perfect addition to every fall and holiday table and might be the best way to celebrate pumpkin season.

  • 400 g Plain flour, sifted
  • 15 g Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 125 g Butter, chopped, at room temperature
  • 220 g Pumpkin puree, cooled
  • 80 ml Buttermilk, plus extra to glaze
  • 2 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 Small egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp Dried thyme
  • 100 g Crisp fried onions
  • Herb sour cream to serve
  1. Preheat oven to 220C/430F. Line two oven trays with parchment paper. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. Rub in butter lightly using fingertips, until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  2. Make a well in centre. Add pumpkin puree, buttermilk, maple syrup, egg, dried thyme and fried onions.
  3. Using a bread and butter knife, mix quickly to a soft, sticky dough. Do not over-mix. Turn onto a floured surface. Knead lightly. Press out to form a round about 2cm thick and cut into 10-12 rounds or your desired size and shape.
  4. Place them on the prepared trays. Brush with extra buttermilk. Bake 20-22 minutes or until scones sound hollow when tapped. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with herb sour cream or your favourite chutney.
