3 Cups Self-raising flour
3 Tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Salt
1 Can of Beer

All ingredients into bowl and mix with fork. Makes something of a cross between a batter and dough. Spoon into loaf-tin. Bake at 180 degrees Celcius until golden brown on top.

Or (if you're Ju's Little Sister) Bake at 180 degrees until pleasantly charred on top...

But my flatmates love me, because I make beautiful smells waft from the kitchen on a cold Saturday morning, and they like the idea of eating bread that has beer in it.

It's good to come from Down Under!

Hey, that's sounds just the job for a Solstice Party! TCA (W) is coming to Maalie Court tonight so I shall make some! Brilliant!

Maalie said...

In the oven right now JLS!

Could you clarify how much a "cup" is exactly? I have cups ranging in size from and egg cup to a giant mug I can drink soup out of! Thanks.

Now, that does sound interesting... I must try this one day... Yummo! (Coming from someone who loves 'normal' damper and loves beer too!)

Hi folks.
First of all, it's damper. It's not merangue and nor is it going on sale in a fancy restaurant. In NZL a liquid cup is 250ml which would be fine for this recipe. I used a tupperware 'measuring' cup which had "1cup" on the handle. If in doubt, use a tea-cup!

The bread won't suffer for a little inaccuracy in your measuring. Be casual, be cruisey. Play. (It's fun!)

But thanks for the interest! Let me know how it goes. :-)

Maalie said...

It went extremely well thank you! I take it you put butter (spread) and jam on it? Well, I did! brilliant!

I had to send another one to tell you the verification: trblsoil!

Ju's little sister said...

that's an awesome verification! I'm glad you enjoyed the damper. You can eat it any way you like. We have it still hot with a bit of butter melting on top.
