Cheese and Pumpkin Scones

By meccanica on 25 May 2010 | Viewed 11790 times

This recipe is based on Teresa’s excellent Kumara Scones, but came about because I didn’t have all the ingredients and needed to make do. It worked out extremely well but hasn’t been tested again yet.


1C White rice flour

2/3C Potato starch flour

4tsp Baking Powder

1tsp Sugar

1/4tsp Salt

30g Butter

1/3C Pumpkin, cold, cooked, mashed and sieved

2/3C Milk
1C grated cheese approx

Extra flour for dusting oven tray.


Preheat oven to 220oC. Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl. Add the buttermilk, kumara and the melted butter and cheese. Stir until smooth. Add most of the cheese (save a little for sprinkling on top) and stir in. Leave dough/batter to set a while (approx 5 minutes). Place on a dusted baking tray. Sprinkle the top with the left over cheese.

Bake for 15 - 20mins (fanbake times).
Makes 4-8 (depending on how you slice it once out of the oven).

Hi Lois, Potato Starch flour ( or just Potato Starch) is explained here in wikipedia: - essentially it is a flour made from the carbohydrate part of potatoes.
You can buy it at places like Bin Inn and some supermarkets.

Yum!!  Made for lunch for whole family and they were a hit.  I am the only one that is gluten free in the family, but they all loved them grin

Is anybody else as confused as me. I have seen in shops (or mentioned in recipes)  “Potato Flour”, “Potato Starch” and “Potato Starch Flour”. I have also read that they are not the same thing. Can anybody enlighten me about this subject???

Hi Lindsey, as far as I have found in practice they are all the same thing. Have a look at the wikipedia link above too. Good luck experimenting. Mike
