Step Two:

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.

Step Three:

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.

  1. Hi, will this recipe work with a conventional/fan-forced oven too? Felt the sudden need to make damper at home, I guess this is what quarantine has done to me.

  2. This recipe is a hit in my household. My son loves damper and asks for this recipe time and time again Very nice, quick and easy damper! It was only a smallish loaf, but you could easily double it in the TMX I would think to make it bigger next time. Really enjoyed it though, thank you!
