A great Aussie favourite which incorporates the best Aussie fav....VEGEMITE. I got this recipe from another Aussie Icon.... the A.B.C. You will only need 2/3 stubby, what you do with the rest is up to you!
- 3 cups self raising flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons vegemite, dissolved in
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1 (12 ounce) stubby beer (you wont need it all)
- 1 cup tasty cheese, cut into 1 centimetre cubes
- Sieve the flour, salt, baking powder and bicarb into a bowl. Add the sugar and mix well.
- Dissolve the Vegemite in the milk in a saucepan over a low heat - or this can be mixed in the microwave-.
- Stir the dissolved Vegemite/milk mixture and some of the beer into the mixture until a pliable dough is formed. Turn out onto a floured surface and roll into a round shape.
- Place on a greased oven tray, moisten the top with water and sprinkle with grated cheese if you wish.
- Using a knife, score lines about 1cm deep on top of damper to divide into 6.
- Bake in a hot oven for 25-30 minutes.
This made a lovely full flavoured damper and went great with our vegie soup. For my tastes it was a little salty though so I would reduce the salt if making again. Thanks for posting a new way to use vegemite though!
Mmmm this sure beats a normal damper hands down! Was nice and moist on the inside with a nice crunchy crust on the outside. The cheese and vegemite was a wonderful combination. I made half the amount which was a good light lunch in itself for two.
