Pumpkin and Cheese Scones

These delicious savoury scones with pumpkin and cheese make an easy and healthy snack your toddler will love.


  • 250 g Pumpkin, chopped coarsely
  • 2 1/2 cups Self-raising Flour
  • 1 tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 50 g Butter, chopped
  • 1/4 cup (30g) Cheddar, coarsely grated
  • 1/4 cup (20g) Parmesan, coarsely grated
  • 1/2 cup (125mL) Milk
  • 1/4 cup (20g) Extra Parmesan, coarsely grated


  1. Preheat oven to very hot (240°C). Grease a deep 19cm-square cake pan.
  2. Boil, steam or microwave pumpkin until just tender and drain. Mash pumpkin in small bowl. Cool for 10 minutes.
  3. Place flour and sugar in a medium bowl and use your fingertips to rub in butter until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in cheeses and pumpkin. Make a well in the centre of the mixture, then add only enough milk to mix to a soft, sticky dough. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly until smooth.
  4. Press dough out to about 2cm in thickness. Cut 4.5cm rounds from the dough (you should get 16 rounds). Place scones, side by side and just touching, in prepared pan. Sprinkle with extra cheese. Bake, uncovered, for about 20 minutes.

Brivis Heater - Error Code #69

My Brivis HX23 Heater broke down this week.  H01 Code #69.  This code was not even listed in the User Manual!  Searching around the web and here is what I found: Secret Reset: This is not in the User Manual.  On the networker controller press FUNCTION > 1 > 4 keys and the screen will go blank and come back on after 30 seconds, this has rebooted the main PCB and reset the fault code. Use this with caution as too much gas build up could cause an explosion. Use it only after the unit has enough time to air out the gas build up. What is Code #69 or any other unpublished codes?  The best way to find out is to open up the heater unit.   There is a little LCD on the PCB showing what error exactly is. (Note: Opening up the unit may void your warranty.)
