Base: Breads Comments:
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

2 1/2 Cup(s) Flour, self-raising
1 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 Teaspoon(s) Butter
1 Teaspoon(s) Sugar
1 Cup(s) 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
thebutter. Add the liquid and mix well. Knead for about 5 minutes (if
youdon't know about kneading, look in a good cookery book with plenty
ofpictures, it's difficult to describe in words).Shape into a flattened
ball and place on a greased and floured bakingsheet or in a greased and
floured round cake tin (I recommend thelatter, about 7 or 8 inch
diameter, as it gives a better shape). Bakefor 30 minutes. Use a Dutch
oven if you are cooking in an open fire, anduse your experience as to
cooking time.Serve in moderately thick slices while still fairly hot.
I'm told thatgolden syrup (a treacle-like substance made as a
by-product of canesugar refining) is the traditional thing to spread on
it, and that goeswell. Jam is good, too. NOTES Bread as made by
drovers in the outback -- I don't know how many ofyou realize it, but
there is a wealth of TV programmes about cookingfrom around the world.
We are lucky in that Australia's SBS network(Special Broadcasting
Service "multi-cultural television") has a regularslot for food and
wine at a convenient time on Saturday evenings. Overthe last couple of
years we have seen series on French, Indian, Chinese,English,
Vegetarian, Australian and Sri Lankan cookery, among others. Ifyou'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, butthe temperature in an oven is
much more consistent! This recipe has theadvantages of being simple
and, with ordinary care, reliable.: Difficulty: easy.: Time: 10
minutes preparation, 30 minutes cooking.: Precision: measure
