One thought on “Pumpkin and Ginger Scones

  1. I halved the recipe, using 1 egg only, which made 11 scones. They are very tasty, with ginger dominating. I felt they didn’t need anything added to them as a topping, not even butter.

    However, I feel it’s cake rather than scones and would make it as cake next time.
