Australia Day Damper!

This is a great recipe for any time of the year, not just the 26th January! I sometimes will make some with my dad as an after school snack….


3 cups of self-raising flour

1 pinch of salt

2-heaped teaspoons of sugar

¾ cups of water

80g of butter, cubed


  1. Preheat oven to 200ºC and cover a 30cm by 30cm tray with greaseproof paper. Add flour, salt and sugar in a large bowl and then rub the butter in until it resembles breadcrumbs. Just like making scones.
  1. Add water and knead until it sticks together. If the dough is crumbling add teaspoons until it is dough-like. Roll into a ball and squish until it is about 2½ -4 inches or 5 – 10 cm tall. Place onto the tray. With a sharp knife, cut a cross 1cm deep into the dough.
  1. Cook for 30ish minutes or until golden brown and when you knock the bottom it sounds hollow. Cool for 5 minutes and enjoy with jam or honey.
