Pumpkin Scones and Honey Cinnamon Butter

by Permanent Posies on September 19, 2011

Well, it is time for the  Secret Recipe Club reveal.  I joined SRC last month and had a great deal of fun with it. 

Secret Recipe Club

Here is the way it works.  I am assigned a blogger (secretly) and I am supposed to peruse that blog’s recipes, choose one to cook, and then blog about it once I do.  Yeah!  A cooking challenge!  If you know me, you know that this is right up my alley.  I think that there are about 300 bloggers participating this month. 

Last month, I didn’t find out until the last minute whose blog I was assigned, due to a switch up.  But this month, I knew who I had all month and have spent the month getting to know my blogger.   My assigned blog is

First of all, she lives in Australia and second, she is so dang funny.  I laughed out loud several times and felt like we could be friends.  Six Kilos gal is an actress, by the way.  She is in college and studying Theater Arts and Behavioral Science…..and doing lots of cooking.  I had a hard time choosing just one recipe to cook.

But since it is almost fall down here in Texas,  I decided to go with Pumpkin Scones.  My family loves all things pumpkin in the fall.  Doesn’t everyone?  Of course, Six Kilos is looking at spring in her part of the world.

I normally change recipes to suit my tastes but I have never actually made a scone before.  I have no idea what would need to be changed.  In fact, I have only eaten a scone once in my life…..not meaning to show my lack of culture.  I am in Texas, ya’ll.  (That ya’ll does not sound a thing like Paula Dean….by the way.)  We eat tortillas and cornbread.  Ok….unless you live in Dallas….which I don’t.  But if I did, I am sure I would have enough culture to be eating scones more frequently.  But, I digress.

Here are my scones.  And in case you are as ignorant as I am on this tea time treat, a scone is sort of like a biscuit with less fat.  Add some sugar….so it is sweet….but not too sweet.   Scones can also be savory, by the way.

Did you know that most of the people in the world pronounce scone… sound like John.  In Texas….we say scone that sounds like Joan.  Also, pumpkin scones are quite uniquely Australian…..where my secret blogger lives.  Also, Scones can be fried, baked or placed on a griddle like a pancake.  I am baking mine, just like Six Kilos gal.

Here is the recipe:

PUMPKIN SCONES (served with Honey Cinnamon Butter)
Original Recipe from The Golden Wattle Cookery Book

1 1/2 tbsp butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup cold mashed pumpkin
2 cups self-raising flour
4 tbsp butter for muffin tin

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar together. Add the egg and pumpkin. Add flour and mix well. Melt 1/2 tbsp of butter in each of 8 muffin tin holes.  Pour in heaped tablespoons of dough and bake for 15 minutes.  Serve with Honey Cinnamon Butter.


1/2 stick butter
1 tsp honey
1/8 tsp cinnamon

These were great for breakfast!

Those sound delicious.  I didn’t know pumpkin scones were Australian!  When I actually find a can of pumpkin in my grocery stores, I am definitely going to try these.

oo, I love that you baked your scones in a muffin pan it appears? Love that trick. 
glad you are enjoying the SRC!  
This was my new creation for the SRC…

I love pumpkin anything – adding to my fall list of goodies to try.

Double Dipped Life September 19, 2011 at 10:53 AM

So, they are scones, but you make them in a muffin tin? Hmm… I am still going to try these no matter what they are called! They sound great. Thanks!

I love scones, but they always seem a tinge sinful with their sweet, white flour ways. That pumpkin just might let me justify a batch of these for breakfast. Thanks.

Stopping by from group B. So fun to be in the Secret Recipe Club with another Texan! Great Post!  I’ve never made scones either…guess it’s just always been biscuits for us.  I’ll have to give it a shot!

If you haven’t already, I’d love for you to drop by my blog and check out my SRC recipe this month: Avocado Omelet

Jeanette September 19, 2011 at 6:41 PM

This looks like a simple easy recipe – so glad you decided to try these out – they look really good! Terrific choice for SRC.

The scones look very yummy. 

I’m seeing lots of pumpkin recipes lately – it must be getting close to October.

Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin. So many people made pumpkin stuff this month and I’m jealous because its my favorite thing. Absolutely my favorite time of year, fall is. These are AMAZING. Scones… I cannot get over how delicious they look in your photos. Perfect pick this month!

Mmmm…pumpkin.  Mmmm…scones.  Mmmm…honey-cinnamon butter. LOL, wish I had some in front of me right now, they sound fantastic! ‘Tis the season ;)

Amy @ A Little Nosh September 20, 2011 at 11:45 AM

I’ve never seen a scone made in a muffin tin.  When I make mine, they’re triangular.  These sound delish, though!

Couscous & Consciousness September 22, 2011 at 4:40 AM

Yum – those look delicious.  I reckon I could eat a bowlful of that butter!
