This weeks dough challenge was probably more about tradition that making dough, as we made damper. Damper is a traditional scone dough cooked on a stick over the fire. It was popular with new settlers and stockmen. It is still popular around campfires today.
We lit the fire early in the morning and allowed it to reduce to hot coals.
We went for a walk to find suitable sticks.
Then we cooked it on the fire – making sure to turn it every so often. Damper is tricky because it looks cooked on the outside and is often still raw in the middle.
