The origins of damper are from a poor settler's simple combination of flour and water cooked in the coals of a fire. As times progressed, people became richer and items like butter and milk became more accessible thus damper grew into a recipe like the one below.

Makes: 1 Damper

  • 3 1/2 cups self raising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
