Easy Meals - Australian Damper bread

I was watching Lorraine Pascale's cookery programme the other night and she featured some Australian Damper bread. It's a traditional type of soda bread created in the outback and cooked on a camp fire and uses the most basic ingredients - flour, oil (sometimes milk), salt and that's it.

I have a huge (huge) bag of self raising flour which I got by accident as I already had a small bag still unused - thought I didn't already have one so it's just been sat there waiting for the right recipe. Today was the day and it was so simple to make and cooked in 30 minutes. I'm going to make more so I'll probably crack open the big bag sooner than expected.

We had it for lunch with cheese and pickles and even Bubba liked it.

Australian Damper Bread

450g Self Raising Flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
225ml warm water

I then added the following although can leave them out.
3 Sprigs finely chopped rosemary
75g Olives or sundried tomatoes

Stir all together with wooden spoon and then make into a smooth dough, add markings and put in oven on 200 degrees for 30 minutes until nice and brown.

Score with end of wooden spoon
End result, a yummy soda bread
