Serves: 8


  • 2 1⁄3 cups white whole-wheat flour
  • 1⁄2 cup light brown sugar
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 6 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1⁄2 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1⁄4 cup raisins
  • 1 tsp. demerara sugar


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
  • Place the flour, brown sugar, and baking powder into a mixing bowl and whisk well to combine.
  • Cut the butter into small pieces and work into the mixture using your hands. Once the mixture resembles coarse crumbs, stir in the milk, pumpkin, and raisins.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat into a large round, roughly 9 inches in diameter. Using a long, sharp knife, cut the dough across into 8 equal wedges. Transfer wedges to the baking sheet. Sprinkle the tops of the scones with the demerara sugar.
  • Place pan on middle rack in oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer scones to a wire rack to cool.
