Aussie Outback Damper


Aussie Outback DamperBushman's Bread!

A form of bread that is usually baked in the ground in a pot, under hot coals.

Bushmen and Drovers originally placed the dough into one of the two regular cooking items they carried, a cast iron pot, then cooked it in the coals and ashes of a campfire while their 'billy', a 'tin pot' and the 'other cooking item' they carried, boiled water.

Aussies have always had plenty of butter and have a favourite food in the way of fruit jam (or conserve), and have always enjoyed their damper with a little 'butter and jam'.


• 2 cups self-rising flour

• 1/2 teaspoon salt

• 2 teaspoons sugar

• 3 tablespoons butter

• 1 cup milk


Mix the flour, salt and sugar together in a bowl. Cut in the butter until fine crumbs form. Add milk to make a soft dough. Knead lightly on floured board until smooth. Shape into round loaf, brush with milk, and bake at 190c for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the loaf makes a hollow sound when tapped.

Cut into slices while hot and spread with butter and syrup.
