For the scones

  • 320 g Self raising flour
  • 90 g Caster sugar
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 ½ tsp Ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Nutmeg
  • ½ tsp Ground ginger
  • ½ tsp Ground cloves
  • 85 g Butter or baking spread cold, unsalted
  • 1 Egg large
  • 3 tbsp Milk (45ml)
  • 125 g Pumpkin puree

For the plain glaze

  • 90 g Icing sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp Milk

For the spiced glaze

  • 50 g Icing sugar
  • ½ - ¾ tbsp Milk add slowly
  • ¼ tsp Ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp Nutmeg
  • A pinch of Ground ginger
  • A pinch of Ground cloves


  • Pre-heat your oven to 200C Fan/220C/425F/Gas mark 7, and line a baking tray with non stick baking paper
  • Put the self raising flour, caster sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves into a large bowl and mix together
  • Add the butter and rub together with your hands until it resembles breadcrumbs
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the egg, milk, and pumpkin puree
  • Combine the pumpkin mixture with the flour until a dough forms, try to not to over mix it, once it's come together that's good enough
  • Pat the dough out into a circle shape about 1cm thick on a floured surface
  • Cut the circle into 6 triangles - or use a round cutter if you prefer and re-roll until all of the dough is used
  • Put the scones on the lined baking tray and bake for 15 minutes
  • Cool the scones fully on a cooling rack
  • Make the base glaze by mixing the ingredients together until smooth with no lumps, use a spoon to gently spread it over the top of each scone
  • Make the spiced glaze by mixing the ingredients together until smooth with no lumps, put it a piping bag and drizzle it over each scone. If you don't want to use a piping bag you can drizzle it over with a spoon
  • Make yourself a tea or coffee and enjoy a delicious scone! They will keep for 2 days in an airtight container in a cool place. They can be frozen without the glazes for up to 3 months
