“A really easy damper recipe- I remember making these when I was still at school. To make a savoury damper, you can really add any herbs of choice, such as chopped parsley, chives, cracked black pepper. Damper is usually served with lashings of butter or for a sweet damper with butter, honey, golden syrup or strawberry jam”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180-190°F.
  2. Using a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour and the salt.
  3. Add the butter and rub it in with your fingertips.
  4. Add the milk and stir it in with a rounded blad knife/butterknife. The dough should be fairly soft, but not too sticky.
  5. Tourn out onto a lightly floured board and shape into a soft smooth ball.
  6. Place the damper ball onto a baking sheet and flatten gently. Cut a cross into the top of the damper and brush with a little milk.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden.
  8. Variations- for the cheese damper add 100 grams of cheese before adding the milk. Add any extra herbs of choice. Sprinkle with a little extra cheese before baking.
  9. For the sweet damper- add the sweet ingredients with the milk.
