Damper Recipe

I made damper for the kids for a treat one afternoon. Easy, and delicious, especially when warm.


3 Cups Self-Raising Flour

Pinch Salt

80 Grams Butter 

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup water

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180ºC.  Add butter, flour and salt to a bowl and rubbed together with finger tips until combined.  It will look like fine bread crumbs.  Make a well in the centre for the liquid.

Add water and milk and use a knife to slowly combine the mixture using a cutting motion, starting form the outside of the bowl, and working the flour mixture into the centre. Keep working until dough forms.
