    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) milk
    • 3 tablespoons softened butter

    1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees C. Generously grease a 23cm square baking dish.
    2. Bring 1 cup of sugar with the cranberry juice and water to a boil in a saucepan and let boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove the cranberry juice mixture from the heat and set aside.
    3. Sprinkle 3 cups of coarsely-chopped rhubarb into the bottom of the prepared dish.
    4. Mix the scone mix, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, the nutmeg and cinnamon together in a bow; stir in vegetable oil and milk to make a soft dough. Roll the dough out on a floured surface into a square about 25cm on each side; spread butter over the dough. Sprinkle 2 cups of finely chopped rhubarb over the butter; sprinkle the rhubarb with 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of white sugar. Roll the dough up Swiss roll style, gently press the seam down and cut the roll into 9 slices. Arrange the slices over the rhubarb in the baking dish. Pour the reserved cranberry syrup over the slices; sprinkle with the last 2 tablespoons of sugar.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven until the topping is golden brown and the rhubarb is bubbling, 25 to 30 minutes.

    GREAT RECIPE, VERY TASTY  -  01 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe I have now made several times adapting it each time. I leave out the spices as my family is not keen on them. Made it also with gooseberries, leaving out the cranberry juice and just using a sugar/ water syrup. It always looks fantastic when baked.  -  09 Sep 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
