AUSTRALIAN DAMPER
 
 
Traditionally made by swaggies over the camp fire or in the coals, but 
you can make it at home, too. 
 
4 cup  self-rising flour OR 4 cup all-purpose flour & 1 tsp. baking powder
2 Tbsp  butter, margarine or dripping
1---1-1/2 cup  milk
1 cup  grated cheese to top
 
Mix dry ingredients, rub in butter (or mix as with pie dough), add enough 
milk so that dough is slightly sticky but can be kneaded. Turn dough onto 
well floured surface, knead into a flat ball, flatten to about 2 inch 
thickness. Score dough into wedges so that it can be pulled apart after 
baking. Top with grated cheese. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, turn 
oven down to 375 degrees and bake for another 30 minutes or until golden 
brown on top. Pull apart wedges, butter and eat with meal. For those out 
camping in the brush: After kneading, roll dough to make a snake (scare 
your little brother/sister with it) wrap it around a thick stick and toast 
over the campfire until golden brown. Smother with butter and jam, eat.
