This is one of those quick recipes for when you need a side dish to go with dinner, and you want something carb-y. Let's face it, you want something bread-y. This will fit the bill nicely.
I received this recipe from an online friend from Australia. I was part of an email group (do they even use those anymore??) before Facebook exploded and everyone connected over there. Most of us ladies were Americans, but there were a few from around the globe and this lady was one of them. She shared this recipe with us, and I tried it once, then promptly added it to my recipe book.
Double recipe of damper awaiting the oven.
I believe this was originally made in the Outback, over a campfire. How cool is that? We love having it with eggs in the morning, or when we have breakfast at dinner. Yum.
Here's the recipe!
Yield: One loaf
3 cups flour (I use freshly-ground whole wheat)
3 heaped teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/4 cup water (more if needed)
Mix dry flour and baking powder; cut in butter. Make a well in the center of mixture; add water. Mix with a knife in a cutting motion. Tip from bowl and knead on a floured surface until it has a smooth, firm consistency. Flatten out into an oven shape, about 1 1/4" thick. Bake at 350F for about 40 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot.
