    Mrs B's Note:

    Damper is a traditional Australian bread. There are probably as many variations as there are people to cook it! This recipe comes from the Australian Women’s Weekly cookbook “Muffins, Scones and Breads”. This is a very useful recipe for those times when you want to make bread, but don't have time to use yeast. Damper has a hard crust and a fairly close texture. Its not a light bread (not the sort of bread you'd use to make dainty cucumber sandwiches, for example!), but it is tasty and is also good toasted. I have found various surces of information about Damper on the internet and learned that originally Damper would have been cooked in the ashes of a bush fire. The ashes were flattened and the Damper was placed there to cook for 10 minutes. Then the Damper was covered with ashes and coked for another 20-30 minutes. The Damper was cooked until it sounded hollow when tapped. This recipe was posted for Zaar World Tour 2005.

      This amounts to a giant baking-powder biscuit/scone. It's quite good and wholesome and looks like something that could have been baked on a campfire. Self-rising flour seems a little out of place here; maybe someone can explain. Made for Zaar World Tour 5.
