Bush Tomato Damper

Recipe by Outta Here

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.

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
