Peppered Camembert Damper Bread Rolls

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 15 mins

Served warm with soup these rolls will become a regular! Wrap dampers in a clean tea towel to keep them warm for up to 30 minutes. You could replace the pepper with sea salt and rosemary, and the camembert with grated tasty cheese.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F Lightly grease two baking trays. Sift flour and 1 teaspoon salt into a large bowl.
  2. Stir in pepper and camembert. Make a well in the centre.
  3. Combine butter, 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup water in a jug. Pour into well. Using a flat-bladed knife, mix until just combined. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until dough comes together.
  4. Divide dough into 8 portions. Roll each portion into a ball and flatten slightly. Place on baking trays, allowing room for spreading. Brush tops with remaining milk. Using a small, sharp knife, make 3 slits in the top of each damper.
  5. Bake dampers for 12 to 15 minutes, swapping trays after 8 minutes, or until golden and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Serve warm.

Delicious! The camembert wasn't as strong as I thought it would be and the pepper gave it a subtle punch. What an easy recipe!
