8 scones


  • 1 ½ ounces unsalted butter, at room temperature

  • 3 ounces brown sugar

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 cup mashed cooked pumpkin

  • 2 cups self-rising flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 tablespoon milk, or as needed (Optional)

  • 2 tablespoons golden raisins, or to taste (Optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Lightly flour a baking sheet.

  2. Combine butter and brown sugar in a large bowl; beat using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add egg and mix until well combined. Add mashed pumpkin and mix.

  3. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Add to pumpkin mixture and mix dough well.

  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface; knead until smooth and satiny, 4 to 5 minutes. Add milk if dough is too thick. Mix in golden raisins. Pat dough into an 8-inch round about 1/2-inch thick.

  5. Use a serrated knife to cut the round into 8 wedge-shaped pieces. Separate wedges on the prepared baking sheet, leaving at least a 1/2-inch space between each.

  6. Bake in preheated oven until tops are light brown and crusty, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and cool 20 minutes before serving.
