  • 60 g vegan butter
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 40 g nutritional yeast (½ cup)
  • 250 g cold mashed pumpkin or squash (1 cup) Approx 300 g of uncooked pumpkin yields 250g cooked.
  • 355 g Self Raising Flour (2 ½ cups)Or add 4 tsp baking powder to plain (all purpose) flour
  • ¼ tsp bicarb soda adds extra lift and lightness!
  • 1 tsp fresh or dried thyme
  • 2 tsp fresh or dried sage
  • 2 tsp plant based milk just enough to bring the dough together.
  1. Preheat your oven to 200C (Gas Mark 5) and line a tray with baking paper

  2. Stir the nutritional yeast, butter and mustard in a bowl until combined

  3. Add in the cold mashed pumpkin and stir until combined

  4. Gradually add the flour to the mix, and use a flat knife (a large butter knife is ideal) to cut the mixture together until it is just combined and starts coming together. If needed add a tiny bit of plant milk to bring together.

  5. Once you have a soft dough, turn it out onto a floured surface and give a light kneed to pull it all together (very light! you don't want tough scones!)

  6. Roll and pat the dough out until it is about 2cm thick.

  7. Use a big cookie cutter or a glass and cut between 10-12 scones out and put onto the tray

  8. (any leftover dough, pat together to make a wobbly scone. Cooks treat for later!)

  9. Dust with flour and bake scones for about 14-15 minutes, until golden on top. They will sound hollow when tapped on the bottom when properly baked.

  10. Let cool on a wire rack and then serve!

  11. Delicious served warm with butter!
