A bush tomato is an Australian native berry related to the tomato. Sun-dried tomatoes can be subbed. Dampers are usually baked in one loaf, like soda bread, but these are shaped into rounds like American biscuits.

- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 3 teaspoons unsalted butter, softened

- 1 ounce Bush Tomatoes or 1 ounce sun-dried tomato, soaked to soften
- Sift flour and baking powder together into a bowl.
- Add salt, sugar and butter, and mix with fingers until crumbly.
- Add milk and tomatoes and mix.
- Allow to rest 30 minutes.

We enjoyed these very easy to make biscuits with butter. I ground my bush tomatoes but only had 1/2 ounce. I did roll the dough thinner to make serving of 8 biscuits. Made for Australia ZWT #8 Ta Cheers
The biscuits are fabulous!! The bush tomatoes themselves got mixed reviews, lol. Concentrated flavor in those wee things! Made for ZWT8 Chefs Gone Wild! Thanks, Mike :)
