Recipe's preparation

  1. 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.




  2. 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.
















  3. 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 Closed lid, interval speed Gentle stir setting and knead Dough mode for 1min.

    Add in 3/4 chopped walnuts and 1/2 cup of sultanas in the last 30s.


  4. 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!

  • Tastes great. Despite all the instructions there...

    Tastes great. Despite all the instructions there was no mention of when to add the pumpkin. ( not difficult to work out). My mixture was very damp. So was spooned onto the tray. It is a lovely recipe so will try again.

  • Oops! It seems I missed out

    Oops! It seems I missed out the part of adding back in the pumpkin.   Add it in with the SR flour, lemon essence and salt.  As it's a main component of the scones you want it kneaded into the mixture well.

  • Although the recipe still

    Submitted by Wendy181 on 22. August 2013 - 16:07.

    Although the recipe still needs a bit of work I really loved the outcome.  I am not a natural cook but thought the pumpkin would probably go in at the same time as the sultanas & walnuts.  I also only creamed the sugar and butter for 30 seconds as the sound from the tmx was a bit scary.  This still seemed to work ok.  Mine wasn't quite fully mixed after kneading and think next time I will stir it on reverse rather than knead.  Thanks for this yummy receipe, I will be taking them to work tomorrow!!
