    **Jubes**'s Note:

    A really easy damper recipe- I remember making these when I was still at school. To make a savoury damper, you can really add any herbs of choice, such as chopped parsley, chives, cracked black pepper. Damper is usually served with lashings of butter or for a sweet damper with butter, honey, golden syrup or strawberry jam

      Delicious quick-to-make and hearty bread! I made the savory version, with lowfat cheddar cheese, and I added dill which was a great combination. Very tasty warm out of the oven but good cold the next day too - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!

      Somehow I doubt that damper is supposed to be lumpy on the outside, clearly I could use some experience in the craft of damper making,lol. Rough as the exterior of mine may be it tastes marvelous. I made the sweet version for DH as he has an unstoppable sweet tooth. Used good old Rodgers Golden Syrup and the sultanas. It sure is very quick, even with the weighing of ingredients (something I don't normally do) it was ready for the oven in 15 mins. It was nice too, that I already had everything ask for in the house :D. Made for ZWT8.

      Quick, easy, and tasty--what more can you ask? I, too, made the savory version, and used sharp cheddar for the cheese. I thought 8 oz sounded like a bit much so I cut it back; next time I won't ;). This was delicious buttered and served with vegetable soup. Our only complaint was that the loaf crumbled quite a bit when cut, but that could be a result of user error! Will definitely make again. Made for ZWT 8: The Wild Bunch.
