How To Make It
This is a very simple recipe that is quick to prepare. The result is similar to soda bread and is good to eat hot straight from the grill with some butter. You can experiment with adding herbs, olives or other ingredients to your damper dough. You can try adding chocolate chips or marshmallows if you want something sweet!
If you have an iron kettle or pan that will fit, you can use this instead of a metal tray for baking your damper on your O-Grill. This will make it heat more evenly and makes it less likely the base may burn. Traditional damper was always burned around the edges from the campfire, but you might prefer not to burn yours!
