  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted macadamias roasted
  • 100 g semi-dried tomatoes roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves firmly packed, roughly chopped
  • 250 ml buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp macadamia oil
  • milk for brushing


  • Preheat the oven to 180'c, fan forced.
  • Sift the flour into a large bowl, add ground mountain berry pepper, salt, macadamias, tomatoes and basil leaves and make a well in the center.
  • Combine the buttermilk and oil, pour into the well and use a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion to mix until the mixture just comes together then use your hands to bring the mixture together.
  • Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead for a couple of minutes or until smooth. Shape into a disc and place onto a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper.
