  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a large oven tray with baking paper. In a medium jug or bowl, whisk pumpkin, sugar, and So Good milk, until smooth.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the crushed Weet-Bix, flour, baking powder, salt, and spices. Add margarine and use fingertips to quickly rub the spread into the dry ingredients until crumbly. Make a well in centre of the flour mixture.
  3. Pour pumpkin mixture into the well. Stir, using a flat-bladed knife and a cutting motion, until a shaggy dough forms.
  4. Use two large spoons to scoop dough into 10 portions, and place on the prepared tray. Sprinkle with coarse sugar, if using.
  5. Bake 18 - 20 minutes until golden and cooked through. Cool on tray 5 mins, serve warm. Scones are best on the day they are baked.

Tips

  • Mixed spice can be replaced with 1 tsp ground cinnamon, plus 1/2 tsp ground ginger, plus a pinch of grated nutmeg.
  • We recommend using a gluten free flour blend that contains Xanthan Gum (sometimes listed in the ingredients as 415). If your blend does not contain Xanthan, we suggest adding 1/4 teaspoon Xanthan Gum powder to the flour in step 2.
