Perfect for a backyard camping trip, or just because you’ve got a warm bread craving.

Classic Beer Damper


  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees and prepare an oven tray by lightly greasing it.

  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour and salt. Add in the parmesan, chives, spring onions and caster sugar.

  3. In the centre of your bowl create a well. Pour in the beer, and using a butter knife mix it quickly to create a soft and sticky dough. Be cautious not to over mix.

  4. Turn your dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead it lightly. You can either split this dough into a few smaller dampers, or make a large one. Form your dough into one or more rounds and place on your greased oven tray.

  5. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the damper sounds hollow when you tap it. Cool for a minimum of 10 minutes before slicing, then serve warm with lots of butter!
