Beautiful days but the night temperatures have dropped drastically, perfect time for camp fires.
Nothing better than a good camp fire to bring everyone together and relax with the warmth and cook your perfect damper to camp stew.
Beer & mixed fruit Damper.
1-1/2 cups self-raising flour Add the baking powder to the flour and mix.
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons butter
Dried mixed fruit or sultanas
1. You may need slightly more or less beer than the ingredients suggest but the mixture should be able to hold its shape in the dish.
2. Score the dough deeply with a knife to make it easier to break it into segments when cooked.
3. Never try to cook damper over flames, only ever with coals.
4. Damper is great smothered with butter or drizzled with golden syrup, and is always best eaten while hot.
5. If you are a complete beginner, just buy a packet of commercial damper mix from the store, mix it as per the directions, and it will still be delicious.
6. Measure and mix dry damper ingredients before leaving home, store them in an air-tight container or in a plastic bag ready for use. This will take up less room than carrying separate ingredients and saves time in preparation.
In some campgrounds, fires are not permitted at any time; at others, campfires are permitted with seasonal restrictions and in provided fire pits only.
At some campgrounds there may be additional periods before the start and following the end of the ‘no fires at any time’ period when campfires are permitted during certain hours only. There is a period during which campfires are not permitted at any time of day or night. Very generally, this period is from December 1 to March 31 inclusive, but it may vary from place to place and from year to year.
