Rhubarb adds sweetness and colour to this fruit and nut biscuit recipe. You can experiment with single varieties of nuts or add a mixture.


Serves: 36 

  • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 125g butter
  • 1 cup (220g) white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup chopped rhubarb (about one stalk)
  • 1/2 cup (90g) raisins
  • 1/2 cup (60g) chopped nuts
  • 3 tablespoons linseeds

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Preheat an oven to 190 degrees C. Combine flour, bicarb soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat the egg into the butter until completely blended, then stir in the rhubarb. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the raisins, nuts and linseeds, mixing just enough to evenly combine. Drop spoonfuls of the dough 5cm apart onto ungreased baking trays.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on the trays for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Yum!! I used sesame seeds instead of linseeds. I was a bit worried about not precooking the rhubarb, but I chopped it fine and it cooked through in biscuits no problem! - 22 Feb 2012
