    Mrs B's Note:

    Damper is a traditional Australian bread, but this version is cut up and served as a kind of scone. The recipe comes from the Australian Women’s Weekly cookbook "Muffins, Scones and Breads”. Recipe posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. NOTE: Australian chefs use a larger tablespoon measure so will only need 2 tablespoons of crystallised ginger and the same for the extra sugar.

      The flavor was wonderful as the almond and cinnamon combination went wonderfully with the rhubarb and ginger. Its a tangy peppery sweet that's a little more complicated than your usual breakfast sweetness. I made this using a blend of splenda and sugar. Not a good idea as it may have created some odd restusts on the exterior of the damper - not sure as this was my first. Mine was brown and tender lacking any crispyness - something that often happens with sugar substitue. Nonetheless we enjoyed it thoroughly. Thanks Caroline.
