Sunny day & Making Damper

Yesterday was a awesome sunny day, so we had a picnic lunch outside.  First we had to make lunch from scratch. We made Damper after Tyson saw it on tv and wanted to know what it tasted like  & how to make it.

The recipe we used wasn't gluten free but we made it dairy and soy free.


  • 3 cups of self-raising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water


Sift flour and salt into a bowl, rub in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
Make a well in the centre, add the combined milk and water, mix lightly with a knife until dough leaves sides of bowl.
Gently knead on a lightly floured surface and then shape into a round, put on a greased oven tray. Pat into a round 15-16 cm (6-6 1/2 inch) diameter.
With sharp knife, cut two slits across dough like a cross, approximately 1cm (1/2in) deep.
Brush top of dough with milk. Sift a little extra flour over dough.
Bake in a hot oven for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
Reduce heat to moderate and bake another 20 minutes.

The boys enjoyed eating it when it was cooked, Tyson said it tasted lovely with Raw honey.  When it was time to eat, we put a blanket on the grass and sat outside and ate.
