Aussie damper cooked over an open fire

As part of the challenge chain, I planned to restore an old cast iron skillet and lid and make damper. Damper is a campfire bread from Australia. Very simple, 2cups self raising flour, pinch of salt and enough water to make a slightly sticky dough. It should not be kneaded, so it takes minutes to make.

The final attempt was delicious, it’s eaten warm with butter and golden syrup. By the fire

The first attempt was less good, :scream:

What is better than outdoor cooking/baking!?

That is amazing. The bread, yes, but mostly the pan rescue! Yay, you!

It actually looked perfect when I had first seasoned it. I’d say it might need another go at seasoning.

Our next plan is to cook on it over the fire, use it as a frying pan.

The more you use cast, the better it gets! Take care cleaning it, that’s where most people go wrong.

This is awesome! AND educational!
