This was very quick to put together, I liked this with hot honey butter. I have made both kinds 1 with self rising and one without and found that yours had a more denser smooth texture however I loved them both, thanks for posting!!!

This is probably the first ever thing I made on my own at about age 9 while camping. Grab a tennis ball size piece of dough and wrap it around a thick long twig (should be about 10 cm/ 4 inches long) remember the twig needs to be long. Carefully cook over your camp fire not in the fire, turning often for about 5-8 minutes. Serve hot with golden syrup. This can be baked too, but the flavour is not the same. My kids now help make this at our annual camping trip, when there are no fire restrictions.

My daughter is doing a report on Australia tomorrow and I've struggled with what to make for it. All I know about Australian food is Vegimite and that nobody else likes it. So I was thrilled when I heard about this bread! Even better is that all the ingredients are on hand and its so simple! Thank you!

I had not made Damper for years....then I found this recipe and made some for afternoon tea. Served warm with butter and golden syrup - YUMMO! I had forgotten just how simple and good this stuff is!

Wow-damper brings back wonderful memories of camping holidays!!! This was simple to make and turned out beautifully.I had the end piece (straight from the oven) spread with lots of butter,with a lovely cup of tea (unfortunately not billy tea). Thanks Chrissyo for another keeper.
