Christmas Damper


  • 2 cups of self-raising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup milk or water and 1/2 cup of Grainfields liquid (enough to make a medium or soft dough)
  • 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda.



Rub the butter into the flour. Knead. Mould into a Christmassy shape – a wreath, or a star. Bake in hot oven (or wrapped in foil in ashes if you are cooking it in a fire). Cook for 20 minutes until brown. Serve with butter and jam, honey or golden syrup.
