It can be done! You can’t go camping without making a damper, it’s almost a tradition! But what about those who are intolerant to gluten? This gluten-free damper recipe is perfect for those who have Coeliac disease or choose to eat a gluten-free diet. You can also use this recipe as a base and add any flavour variants you like, be it sweet or savoury.
500 grams gluten-free self-raising flour
Good pinch salt
Water (roughly 1 – 1.25 cups)
In a bowl add 500 grams of self-raising gluten-free flour and a pinch of salt.
Slowly add water until the ingredients start to combine and form big clumps of dough. Use a butter knife to cut into the big clumps and keep on stirring around and around. The dough mix will slowly come together and form one piece. There’s no need to use your hands as the mix is very sticky.
Use your knife to turn the damper out onto a lightly floured trivet covered with foil and put the lid on the camp oven. Cook with an even amount of top heat and bottom heat.
Cook for about 30-40 minutes. The damper should be ready when browned on top and sounds hollow in the middle when tapped.
Serve with your favourite spreads. Butter and golden syrup is always a winner!
Note: You can always use gluten-free plain flour if you wish. Simply add 1/2 a teaspoon of baking powder per 1 cup flour.
