    These savoury pumpkin scones are moist and tender and have a bread-like texture. They are a great lunch with a green salad.

    Makes: 8 scones

    • 250g plain flour
    • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
    2. In a bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Rub in the butter.
    3. Add the roasted capsicum, feta and sage and stir well. In a measuring jug, mix together pumpkin puree and milk.
    4. Pour the pumpkin mix into the flour and gently mix just until the dough comes together. Do not overmix or scones will be tough.
    5. Place the dough on a floured surface and pat out to a circle 15mm thick. Cut into 8 wedges and transfer to the baking tray.
    6. Bake 22-25 minutes until firm on the outside but still soft inside. Let cool on a wire rack. These are best warm.
