Amira's Pumpkin and Date Scones
Pumpkin is in a hugh supply at the moment and quite cheap, so what better way to enjoy on a cold winters night. I enjoy these for breakfast, you might too.
3 cups S/R flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sugar
¼ tsp salt
1 cup dates, chopped
1 cup cold mashed pumpkin
1 tsp vinegar
In a large bowl add flour, baking powder, sugar and salt, stir to combine. Then stir through the dates and pumpkin. Combine together cream and milk and heat until warm, add vinegar. Pour the milk mixture over the flour/pumpkin mixture and stir with a spatula until combined, do not over mix. Turn out onto a lightly floured bench and flatten with your hands. Cut out into rounds and place onto prepared baking tray. Bake at 210oC (200oC fan forced) for 12 minutes or until cooked.
Remove from oven and serve warm, cut in half with butter.
