This Cinnamon Pumpkin Scone Wedge is best served warm with butter for breakfast, tea time or an anytime snack – quick and so easy to make too !
Great for breakfast or as a treat at tea time ! This Cinnamon Pumpkin Scone Wedge is another winner brunch winner in our house.
You can add a third cup of Seedless Raisins to the dough, but I preferred to leave it out this time round.
In general scones baking, especially something with Cinnamon, is always one of the best baking/cooking smells for me.
We just about never have any leftovers, but a scone is best eaten on the same day which it has been baked, anyway.
But on the odd occasion that we do have a couple of slices left the following morning, I simply re-heat the slice and enjoy !
Or how about slicing the slices into thinner slices and toast a couple of pieces ? Absolutely delicious !
And with toasting, no one will be any the wiser that the Pumpkin Scone wedge was baked the previous day.
We do not have Pumpkin pie filling, or any kind of canned Pumpkin in our usual grocery stores. Therefore I always use fresh Pumpkin.
To steam the Pumpkin is best as it will not absorb any additional liquid. And all you will be left, is pure pumpkin puree or mashed pumpkin – depending on how you intend to use the pumpkin.
If you also make your own pumpkin puree etc and have a pressure cooker, the pumpkin will be cooked in minutes !

I've been making Pumpkin Scone Wdge for the Sheares for decades, but lost my cook book with it in .. & after a while stopped making it from memory. My recent attempt was not up to scratch .. But Today ! Cooked perfectly ! Thank you ! I have always thrown in some sultanas, , I also don't add sugar . And old recipe dint have any spices, but I love nutmeg with pumpkin, so added that & less cinnamon.
Also my gluten / dairy free one was also a success ...
To both I added a tablespoon apple cider vinegar, + 50 - 50 lemonade & cream in basic & 50 - 50 lemonade & coconut cream & coconut & olive oil subst for butter .... Both were thumbs up @ the Shearing shed
Now made again, Thank you .. It's always been a favourite
