Here are just a few savory twists on the most classic of all American dishes:
Spiced pumpkin and Guinness treacle drop scones with goat’s cheese
150 g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
25 g caster sugar
A pinch of salt
1tbsp of black treacle
500g diced pumpkin flesh
1teasp of coriander seeds
1teasp of fennel seeds
½teasp of chilli powder
Salt and pepper
Sieve the flour and baking powder into a bowl, add the sugar and salt and stir to mix.
Make a well in the center, crack in the egg and whisk, gradually drawing in the flour from the edge. Add the milk, Guinness & treacle gradually, whisking all the time, to form a smooth batter.
Lightly grease a frying pan and warm it over a moderate heat. Drop 3 tablespoons of the batter into the pan, keeping them apart so they don’t stick together.
Cook for about 2 minutes, until bubbles appear on the surface and begin to burst and the drop scones are golden underneath.
Then flip them over and cook on the other side for a minute or so, until golden on this side as well.
Remove from the pan and serve warm with spiced pumpkin & crumbled goats cheese.
For the pumpkin put the diced pumpkin on a roasting tray and drizzle with olive oil. Toast the seeds and grind them with the chili to a powder and sprinkle on the pumpkin. Roast at 180c for until the pumpkin is soft and season with salt and pepper. Serve a tablespoon of the pumpkin on a warm drop scone and top of with some crumbled goats cheese.
