A lovely lady named Madeline came into the park this weekend and after sampling one of Prue’s amazing dampers cooked in the camp oven, on a beautiful big open fire, she offered us a recipe of a better one (her words).
3 cups SR flour
¼ cup sugar
1 can beer
¼ cup currants (or any dried fruit)
Method: Place sugar in a bowl, add beer, add flour and mix. Add dried fruit.
Wait 15 minutes (for gluten to release).
Spray or paper loaf tin. Bake in 180*c (on the low shelf) 35 minutes.
After Rod read this recipe, his remark was “that’s a brownie!….but in the oven?”
I guess he’s only ever cooked a damper in a camp oven on an open fire.
Still, this recipe is worth a try.
