The Aussie Damper Shortcut

Cooking a good damper do go with your meal in the bush is fantastic.  It goes well with all meals with a bit of butter, or can make a great morning tea with some Golden Syrup or Vegemite!




The basic recipe for damper involves just self raising flour and water mixed into the consistency of dough.  Historically, many bush dampers prepared by stock men and the like were cooked just by covering the dough in ashes.  Typically however in more recent times damper is cooked in a dutch oven or camp oven.

These days where our primary mode of transport is a car rather than horse, we can carry a few extra bits and pieces to make our food abit more tasty.  For some recipes, some really tasty ones can be found on the Albany Australia website http://www.albanyaustralia.com/damperrecipe.htm
