Stick damper

Step 1. Light your fire. Campfire, brazier or chiminea..the choice is yours.

Step 2. Mix the dough; 3 cups of self-raising flour mixed to a dough by adding buttermilk.

Step 3. Attach portions of dough to stick. The messier the better, however it may want to fall off in the fire if it's as moist as ours. If you don't enjoy living with an element of risk, feel free to add more flour!


Get it on there nice and good. It will stick..eventually. 

If it doesn't, a good smoosh with both hands will no doubt bring it home ;)

Step 4. Place dough stick in hot fire. 

Rotate until done. 
Step 5. Eat. Preferably while still hot and  burning fingers. SO good!

  2. My family used to do that every weekend when we went camping (when I was a little girl). My Mom called it "bikies on a stick" (short for biscuits). If I remember correctly, do you call cookies "biscuits" in Australia?

    1. Yes, Sherri - We do call cookies 'biscuits'. Your biscuits are our damper and scones! :)

  3. Oh we used to make those when we went camping when I was a little kit. We used to eat them with jam.

  6. Ah Dough boys is what we called them. Pull them of the stick and fill with syrup! Have these planned for a 9 year olds birthday we are hosting at the farm.

  8. We did it too but we we did it at the end of the stick so that we could pull it off the stick and fill the hole with jam and butter. So yummy on a cold night camping.

    1. Ahh, the hole would be the perfect cavity for such sticky sweetness. Thanks for the tip, Lynda. :)

  10. I've never seen this before. What fun. It's my nephew's birthday this weekend and we're having a BBQ, I will definitely be doing this with the kids.

  12. Hot damper/scones/any bread at all with cold butter. YUM!

  13. Like Lynda, we made them on the end of the stick too. I remeber firmer dough made into long snakes, wound around the stick, smooshed so there are no holes, cooked, pulled off the stick and filled with honey. It soaks in as you eat from the top down. Oh I am drooling now! Dessert maybe?
