If possible, serve your damper straight from the oven, but if it must be cooked ahead, wrap the loaf in a tea towel to keep it warm.

Ingredients
Serves: 4 

  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • Pinch of caster sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter or dripping
  • About 1 cup milk
  • Extra self-raising flour, for dusting

Directions
Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Sift the flour, caster sugar and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Rub the butter or dripping into the flour mixture with your fingertips.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the flour and gradually add the milk, using a round-bladed knife to mix it in. Continue adding milk until the mixture forms a soft dough.
  4. Turn the dough out on a lightly floured surface and knead gently until the surface is smooth. Shape the dough into a round about 14 cm in diameter. Using a sharp knife, slash a cross in the dough about 1 cm deep.
  5. Dust a baking tray generously with flour and place the damper on the tray. Dust the top of the damper with a little more flour and bake in the preheated oven for 20–25 minutes, or until it is golden and cooked through when tested with a skewer.
  6. Serve hot with butter and golden syrup.

Very easy to put together and quite resilient, got a good result even when I accidentally set the oven 20 degrees too high - 23 Apr 2012
