An Australian damper that can be made in a camp stove on an open fire or in the broiler at home. The wattleseed smell is stunning and adds a nutty, espresso-like flavour to the damper. It’s perfect when hot from the broiler with spread and brilliant syrup.
- 1000g Self-raising flour, sifted
- 10g Wattleseed
- 6 Thyme Leaves
- 5g salt
- 500 ml full-cream milk
- A margarine and brilliant syrup, to serve in case you're utilizing a camp stove, fabricate a fire, and get a pleasant bed of coals going.
- In case you're preparing in a broiler at home, softly oil a heating plate and preheat the stove to 200˚C.
- In a bowl, join the flour, Wattleseed, thyme, and salt, at that point make a well in the middle and pour in the milk.
- Consolidate everything to shape a smooth somewhat sodden mixture.
- Turn the batter out onto a floured seat, and ply until the mixture is smooth.
- Shape the mixture into a round portion. Utilize a sharp blade to score the top with an "X".
- Daintily dust the top with flour not long prior to heating.
- In the event that utilizing a camp broiler, set the stove on a bed of tenderly gleaming coals, place the portion inside, put the cover on, and, utilizing a digging tool, lay a few coals over the camp stove.
- Prepare for around 35 minutes or until the portion has a brilliant outside layer and sounds empty when tapped.
- On the off chance that heating your damper in a standard broiler, place the portion on the stove plate and prepare for 35–40 minutes – once more, you need the portion to have a brilliant earthy coloured outside and sound empty when tapped.
- Present with margarine, brilliant syrup, and hot cups of billy tea.
