Bush Damper

Ingredients (Will serve 4)

  • 450g (3 cups) self-raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 80g butter, chilled, cubed
  • 185ml (3/4 cup) milk


  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  2. Add milk to the flour mixture and use a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion to mix until the mixture just comes together. Add 1-2 tbs extra milk if the mixture is a little dry. Use your hands to bring the mixture together.
  3. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Shape into an 18cm disc and place on your tray. Use a sharp knife that has been dipped in flour to mark 8 wedges on top. Dust the damper with a little extra flour. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the damper is cooked through and sounds hollow when tapped on the base. Transfer to a wire rack for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Serve warm with butter and jam.
