There has been a lot of pumpkin at our place today.
Pumpkin has been roasted, boiled, mashed, and blended. Baby O has eaten pumpkin mash and roast pumpkin pieces and the rest of us have enjoyed pumpkin scones, pumpkin soup and pumpkin pizza. There was even pumpkin in the pizza crust. Delicious it was too. Really really yummy.
I’m thinking that Ms. M and I might have made too many batches of scones lately because I was rather put out with the pumpkin scone recipe that I followed. Throughout the entire make-y process I was deeply in thought about whether or not I was actually making a scone at all. Firstly the recipe called for the butter and sugar to be creamed – a cake making method and secondly the recipe included an egg – another cake element. The end result was certainly something that tasted like scones, not cakes. The process has left me wanting to research scones more. That in itself worries me… clearly I need a life!!!
Do you know anything about pumpkin scones? Are they just an Australian food? What’s your favourite pumpkin recipe?
