This was nice and moist but very heavy (but that's probably just because I'm used to yeast bread). Admittedly, I haven't had "real" damper for many years, but this is more or less like I remember. I had to cook it a bit longer than my bread machine cycle (actually called the "damper" cycle) went for, because that only cooked it for about 40 minutes. I gave it about another 15 minutes. It was very pale on the top, but well browned on the bottom and a bit hard. Most recipes use self-raising flour, rather than bread flour, and I think that using a lower gluten flour might help.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add ingredients in the order specified by your bread machine.
  2. Set machine to yeast free setting.
  3. If you don't have one, I would recommend making the dough in the machine, and then baking in the oven.
