Make Your Own Soda Bread - Australian Damper bread

Lately I've been having some problems eating shop brought bread but for me it's a bit of a staple. I love bread of all descriptions so I'm again making some Australian Damper bread. It's such an easy bread to make and one that the kids can get involved in which is really good because that means they'll also eat it!

Australian Damper bread is 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 because this goes amazingly well with soup and as it gets colder I do love to eat soups and slow cooked meals with lots of sauce to get mopped up with bread.

We had it for lunch with cheese and pickles and even Bubba liked it, my little man was a little less willing to try it but once he did he was a convert to.

Australian Damper Bread

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


I then added Rosemary and sundried tomatoes to make it really nice although you can leave these out and it still tastes amazing.
  • 3 Sprigs finely chopped rosemary
  • 75g Olives or sundried tomatoes

Stir all together with wooden spoon and then make into a smooth dough, it needs to roughly be a circular flat (ish) loaf, add markings, as below, using the base of a wooden spoon and put in oven on 200 degrees for 30 minutes until nice and crunchy.

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