8Recipe is created for
In a clean and dry bowl mill 3/4 cup sugar (approx 160g) for s3 on sp9.
Can use just 1/2 c of sugar if wish to reduce amount. Set aside.
Chop 3/4 cup walnuts on sp7 for 3s.
If you like big chunky walnuts then maybe chop by hand as I do. Set aside.
Chop approx 1/2 pumpkin into small even sized pieces
(needs to make 1cup worth of mashed pumpkin)& place in varoma trays.
Put 1200g water in tmx jug with varoma on top and cook on varoma,
sp1 for 25-30mins.
I tend to do 30mins so my pumpkin is VERY soft so it mashes easier.
Empty tmx jug of water.
Put pumpkin into jug and mix it up on sp4 for 10s so it's nice and mashed.
Put 1cup worth aside in fridge to cool down. Do what you like with the rest..
Generally not much left ie few spoons is all, I eat that ;-P
Clean tmx jug and varoma while you wait for the pumpkin to cool down, if you wish.
Put sugar and 2 tablespoons of butter (or margarine) (this is approx 30g)
into tmx jug and cream on sp6 for 1min. Scrape sides.
Add 1 egg. Mix on sp5 for 15s.
Add 2cups of SR Flour (approx 310g), small dash/drop of lemon essence
(can easily be left out), pinch of salt into bowl and mix on sp5 for 7s.
I tend to bring the dial up slowly so the flour isn't all over the lid. Scrape sides.
Put tmx on closed lid , interval speed and knead for 1min.
Add in 3/4 chopped walnuts and 1/2 cup of sultanas in the last 30s.
I find that the dough is VERY wet not dry enough to roll,
but my mother doesn't (maybe the pumpkin she uses is not
as wet as butternut, which I use) so I drop big spoons of mixture
onto an oven tray with baking paper on it.
Mum rolls hers out and then cuts scone shapes out with a floured cutter.
Either way works fine. Place the scones close together on the tray so
when cooking they end up touching.
Bake for 15mins (until lightly golden brown) in a 225C oven.
Can be converted more to tmx grams with more practice...
I was trying to do this at same time as making this for the first time in
many years and looking after a sick toddler so apologies it's not fully in grams!!
Enjoy cut in half with butter on top. Yum!
