Damper Recipe

February 10, 2014

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.

Step 2

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.

Once dough has formed, use hands to combine into a ball. If it’s too dry, add a little extra liquid.
