Aussie Damper on the BBQ

Ingredients:

  • 450 grams (3 cups) self-raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 80 grams butter, chilled, cubed
  • 185ml (3/4 cup) water

Method:

  1. Preheat BBQ flat plate on low indirect heat (no heat under bread side, burners on high).
  2. Mix the flour, salt and sugar together into a bowl.
  3. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until it looks like fine breadcrumbs.
  4. Add milk slowly and mix to form a soft dough.
  5. Knead lightly on a floured board until smooth. Shape into a round loaf, brush with milk and cut a cross in the top surface of the dough.
  6. Place a BBQ mat or baking paper directly onto the flat plate.
  7. Cook for 20 minutes on low indirect heat. When it’s cooked the damper will sound hollow when you tap on it.
  8. Cut into nice thick slabs and spread with butter, golden syrup or jam.

You can also cook damper in our camp kitchen oven. Preheat to 200 degrees and cook for 20 mins. (oven is located in the old camp kitchen near the office)
