“Damper is a traditional hard crusted Australian bread. This recipe makes 14 individual mini Dampers, or Damperettes. The recipe comes from the Australian Women’s Weekly cookbook “Muffins, Scones and Breads”. Recipe posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. NOTE: Australian chefs use a larger tablespoon measure so they will only need 2 tbsps of ready-made seeded or grainy mustard.”
