    Recipe ingredients and directions:

    Yield: 1 damper

    2 1/2 c Flour, self-raising

    1 t Salt

    1 t Butter

    1 t Sugar

    1 c Milk (or use about

    -1/2 C of powdered milk

    -and about 1 C water)

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together the dry ingredients and the

    butter. Add the liquid and mix well. Knead for about 5 minutes (if you

    don't know about kneading, look in a good cookery book with plenty of

    pictures, it's difficult to describe in words).

    Shape into a flattened ball and place on a greased and floured baking sheet

    or in a greased and floured round cake tin (I recommend the latter, about 7

    or 8 inch diameter, as it gives a better shape). Bake for 30 minutes. Use a

    Dutch oven if you are cooking in an open fire, and use your experience as

    to cooking time.

    Serve in moderately thick slices while still fairly hot. I'm told that

    golden syrup (a treacle-like substance made as a by-product of cane sugar

    refining) is the traditional thing to spread on it, and that goes well.

    Jam is good, too.

    NOTES:

    * Bread as made by drovers in the outback -- I don't know how many of you

    realize it, but there is a wealth of TV programmes about cooking from

    around the world. We are lucky in that Australia's SBS network (Special

    Broadcasting Service "multi-cultural television") has a regular slot for

    food and wine at a convenient time on Saturday evenings. Over the last

    couple of years we have seen series on French, Indian, Chinese, English,

    Vegetarian, Australian and Sri Lankan cookery, among others. If you're

    missing out, why not call your local station?

    This recipe comes from a series called "Australian Tableland".

    Traditionally, damper should be cooked in the coals of a camp fire, but the

    temperature in an oven is much more consistent! This recipe has the

    advantages of being simple and, with ordinary care, reliable.

    : Difficulty: easy.

    : Time: 10 minutes preparation, 30 minutes cooking.

    : Precision: measure carefully.
