Breakfast: Pumpkin Scones with Plain or Spiced Glaze

Turns out, I had 2 pumpkin scone recipes on my "To Make" list. So, the day after last week's Pumpkin Scone recipe, I made this one. The original is at Cate's World Kitchen.  The original wasn't outright vegan. I used all vegan ingredients and these turned out great! They are slightly easier to make than last week's recipe. The result is more true to scone-like. You have 2 choices of glazes on this one. These area slightly better with just a plain glaze (or go easy on the spiced one.)


2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
6 Tablespoons cold Nucoa (vegan butter), cut into 1/2″ cubes
1/2 cup + 3 Tbsp canned pumpkin
sugar glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons almond milk
spice glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons almond milk
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves


  1. To make the scones, preheat oven to 425˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.
  2. Using a fork or wire whisk, stir together the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, work the butter into the flour mixture until it looks like tiny pebbles or coarse sand.
  4. Gently stir the pumpkin into the dry ingredients until barely combined, being careful not to over-mix. The mixture should still look a little dry and crumbly. Divide the dough in half and gently form each half into a 6 round circle a little under an inch thick. Working on a floured surface, cut each circle into 6 wedges and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for about 13-15 minutes, or until the scones are beginning to turn golden brown.
  6. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely before glazing. When you’re ready to glaze, set the rack over a sheet pan.
  7. To make the sugar glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Use a fork or whisk to drizzle over the scones.
  8. To make the spice glaze, combine the spices and powdered sugar, then stir in the milk and mix until smooth. Drizzle over the other glaze, and let harden before serving.
